Comments Off on Web design has come a long way since I first started back in 2002

When I first started my first website back in 2002, there were few choices in website platforms. I first started with Yahoo Stores building my first ecommerce sites selling remote control cars. It was a combination of html codes to DIY website platforms.

What Is Parallax Design?

Graphic showing parallax style layering.

The term “parallax” first came from the visual effect of 2D side scrolling videogames that used different background image movement speeds to create the illusion of depth during gameplay. This was generally done by making the background of the game move slower than the foreground in order to make it seem further away. This same concept applies to parallax site design in which the background of the website moves at a different speed as the rest of the page for an impressive visual effect that allows for countless creative applications for online storytelling.

Parallax design in web design gives websites a great opportunity to:

  • Wow viewers with page depth and animation
  • Take a story-telling approach to guide visitors through the site
  • Make page visits last longer by encouraging visitors to scroll through the entire page
  • Provoke curiosity
  • Direct visitors to calls to action
  • Reenforce website credibility with innovative interactive viewing

Jacqueline Huynh Schaeffer – Reap Coaching, Business and Life Coach.

The “REAP” in the business name is an acronym for Results, Empowerment, Authenticity and Potential. Do you see results from your efforts, do you feel empowered, are you living your life in authenticity and do you feel like you have unlimited potential? If you don’t, how would it feel to have all these things? Would you like to know how to get it?

I have many ways for you to start. For baby steps, I provide 60-90 workshops/tele-classes. To go half-way, I offer 6-8 week programs. If you are ready to dive in & transform your life, I have 16-week programs. If you can’t afford or are not ready for private or group sessions with me right now, I also offer E-workbooks which you can purchase & work at your own pace. You can choose to not participate in a program and “tailor-make” your own program based on your needs and wants currently. Everything I offer can be done as a group session or one-on-one both in person or over the telephone.

Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden

The Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden (MBBG) is a non-profit public education organization dedicated to promoting Earth-friendly gardening techniques, encouraging the use of drought-tolerant plants including California natives, and conserving our natural resources. The leaders of the organization wanted a website design that is both informative, fun and easy to navigate. As a web designer, I visited the site and had a great tour of the garden and had a long chat with the group to learn about their history, activities and how they wanted to use the website as their tool to market their cause and give their information to the website visitors. Their website visitors would most likely come from the surrounding cities of El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Carson, Hawthorne, and Palos Verdes.
