  • Posted to What Parallax Lacks, Jan 28, 2019

    Definition: The parallax animation effect is created by two or more layers of an interface moving at different speeds or in different directions in order to produce an impression of depth.

    Contrary to the established definition, this articles oddly focuses on Apple's iPad product page as a potential solution or evolution of parallax which completely misses the point.

    Apple uses animations that are triggered at scroll positions; conceptually similar, yes, yet provides no sense of depth or exhibits multiple layers.

    Good parallax is similar to any animation, it does not interfere with the UX.

    Ditto! While I'm a little bias as an Australian, +1 to Modula

    I agree with a lot of your points and will definitely will give this book a read! I had the impression you were distilling it simply to a binary position of 'having it' or not, but this cleared it up nicely. I'm keen to read more into the subject!

    This is a debate of nature vs. nurture. People have invested their lives into answering this question and yet its still uncertain, as such, I don't think we'll work it out on this message thread.

    Personally I believe if we tell people they're either 'born with it' or not, it will deter people who might truly have talent because it creates the false expectation that they need to be great out of the gate.

    I hope you understand that design isn't limited to visual communication, but if not, you've still got a long way to go before becoming a designer yourself ;)

    Everyone has the capacity; some just find it easier than others. Its a superficial view to believe your born with talent and either have it or not.
