There is absolutely no reason that first transition needs to scroll-jack. Besides that, everything else is really nice, classy.
Agreed. Having a hard time describing this but I also dislike the 10ish pixel gap that bounces collapses on scroll (the top of the white frame above the fixed nav).
Leonardo di Caprio on their 'team' page :) https://obvious-ventures-prod.herokuapp.com/team
That's a weird link... it looks like a dev server link that was forgotten there.
He says he's part of it: https://twitter.com/LeoDiCaprio/status/542009330409558016
In 1988, at the age of 24, DiCaprio established his foundation…
I think they're 10 years off.
Give these guys an oscar!
That scroll jack is horrible. http://cl.ly/3F3Q002B3e11
Beautiful site if they just got rid of the scroll-jacking
Am I the only one getting increasingly bothered with fade-in transitions and other animations that when scrolling.
Feels like people just put it in because it's some default animation on some Wordpress template they bought. Doesn't seem like they deliberately put it in to make the viewing experience better.
I like to see my content immediately, with a fast smooth scrolling and fast loading.
I'm with you, and yet I still find myself doing them once in awhile. A non-designer audience often associates these flourishes with craft and attention to detail; they don't know how simple they are to implement. My assumption is that a site with motion is perceived as requiring more skill (beyond "mere" Photoshop), thus, if done with some finesse, it has a positive halo effect on the product/message.
Can't remember the last time I saw a homepage slideshow.
Didn't read anything. Scrolled to the bottom, watched the fade-in effects, left.
I'm not exactly a speed reader, but the 'reading time' on the homepage carousel is insanely short. You barely have a moment to catch your breath before the next one is popping up.
I really enjoyed the "Get In Touch" form. The experience felt like a conversation and not a technical contact form. Well done.
Too many things scrolling and fading. It would look much better without all those whiz-bang effects.
