The art of creating a website these days is learning how to create an online experience. Many of these experiences are extensions of a brand or person and are relayed via different colors, fonts, etc. Thanks to awesome advancements in technologies, we can do a lot of stuff with our websites that we couldn’t do a few years ago. We are taking the experience from dry and drab to fun and fab.
One of the trendiest techniques to have fun with is scrolling. We can create full stories that move horizontally or vertically across a screen utilizing many different scenes; we can create effects that make it seem like bubbles and other shapes are taking over screens; we can create backgrounds that seem to have depth of field.
Many of these techniques are what is affectionately called parallax scrolling. Others are just some really cool animations you can trigger by moving your mouse-wheel. Either way, they are extremely fun and popular.
That’s why today, we’ve put together a bunch of our favorite plugins to get even the least code-savvy started making some great scrolling sites…
