I bet you've already seen a bunch of websites where you scroll down a lot, making the elements move. I find such ideas really fun and entertaining, so I've made a long scrolling background for such kind of website, using Adobe Illustrator​!
I'll be collaborating with one of our awesome designers from Envato Tuts+​ to make it work.
