How to Create a Beautiful Column-Colliding Hero Section on Scroll with Divi

Divi’s scroll effects bring a ton of new design possibilities to the websites you create. The subtle interactions you choose to add can really help elevate the overall look and feel of your website. It all gets even better as soon as you synchronize scroll effects. In this tutorial, we’ll specifically handle creating a beautiful column-colliding hero section on scroll. The hero section design merges two different columns on scroll, which in turn helps emphasize the copy. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.

Final Thoughts

In this post, we’ve shown you how to creatively use Divi’s scroll effects to create a column-colliding hero section.
