Sites of the Week #15

August 5th, 2011 by Tony de Jesus

This week, my list contains mainly one-page websites which use an effect called Parallax. Parallax is an apparent displacement or difference in the apparent position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight. In web design, the parallax effect is a relatively new trend. It’s very common on website’s portfolios but it started being used in other types of websites.

This is the personal page of Web Designer Chris Thurman. It consists of a one-page website with a nice and clean layout and a menu that allows you to navigate through the existing anchors.

Farmhouse Fare features another stunning horizontal scrolling design. The Farmhouse Fare keeps a setting of an old country kitchen displayed within the background of each section. All further information is included in a lightbox with text.

At the bottom of this website are shown a set of lines that seems to trace a path among the sky. As you follow the navigational numbers along the bottom it’s very simple to find information and paths towards what you’re looking for. If you enjoy horizontal scrolling websites, this is certainly one to check out for inspiration.




Unfold is an independent digital agency established in Oslo. Their website is simply amazing! Try to scroll up or down and you will think that the website never ends.

Did you find a really amazing website showing a new concept, an original design or a brand new feature? Are you the owner of a website that offers new solutions? Send me the URL via email  (blogattonyjesusdotcom)   or Twitter and tell me why you think it should be posted here.
