Wow! Amazed by the way the ribbon morph to a top menu. Minimal but catchy.
I literally said "oooooooo!"
I was more like "how the....what the....this is awesome!"
It is cool, but isn't it a bit gratuitous and gimmicky like flash websites used to be? Why is the nav bar all twisted up and floating in the background? I'm all for animation if it helps the user but I think in this instance it just doesn't make sense.
I usually hate superfluous animations and gimmick effects, but this one is not interrupting the experience, and it attract attention on the menu bar. The problem will be when this is idea will be reused at nauseam by less talented copycats ;-)
It's not doing any wrong to the user, and sometimes it's ok to do something just because it's beautiful and well executed, don't you think ?
I think it's fine to go to town a bit on a site like this—you're showcasing your talents to clients.
Just noticing the 'team' section, I'm starting to think that the profession of design is suffering from a serious lack of diversity. Granted, it is a small company but seriously, 100% white and 90% male?
Not to detract from the quality of the work (grade A stuff), just a side point...
I'd say that's more indicative of Utah than the profession of design. It's hard (but not impossible) to have a diverse company there because it's not a very diverse place.
it's a handful of people in salt lake city, can't expect much diversity.
I'm actually from Salt Lake City, there isn't much diversity over here. Most everyone are descendant from europeans. You won't see many women in these types of professions either because we're about 60% mormon over here, they are mostly at home taking care of kids.
I'm actually really excited to find this site, Rally Headquarters looks like a really cool place to visit.
I love it. I wouldn't use the horizontal slider (such as the one with the national park stamps) with this type of interface because if you slide too fast, you navigate to another case study. Frustrating.
Yeah this was super annoying. Beautiful site regardless
I did exactly the same thing.
Thanks for the feedback everyone! We are spending this entire week trying to optimize, squash bugs, and polish so take any breakage with a grain of salt.
Also, we probably should've password protected the link — an oopsy on our end. Lesson learned :)
Nice site, love it. I must say I realized very late that the page is draggable horizontally. Maybe a small icon somewhere to remind the user might be a good idea.
I didn't even catch this! But I opened it up on my desktop first before checking how they responded to mobile...
Like the redesign. When I want to point out good work coming out of the SLC area I point to you guys.
After scrolling all the way down, I felt a bit lost as I expected to see a few projects. But nice to see that they implemented swiping gestures on Desktop.
Really nice Site, love the animations and the detailed Case Studys.
At the national park stamp horizontal slider i got a "ghosting" bug with Chrome on Windows.
dat kerning tho!
This is really impressive
