Wow, no scroll jacking. Makes experience so much better.
All I see is big headings with fancy modern words popping up from here and there saying how innovative and revolutionary something is, how it was created solely to benefit the users and brought to life to make the world a better place for us all.
Yes, this site's animations are cool, the colours are cool, the graphics are nice and sleek, I don't deny that overall the website is visually appealing. For me it was engaging to scroll till the end and see all the fancy movements, and all the pretty pictures, they are impressive but if you asked me what the website is about, I can't say much.
I'm sorry, but this is an assembly line design for me.
Every new product or idea with potential to "make the world a better place" has something unique and wrapping its uniqueness in wordings, pictures and layouts shared by half of the www won't make it stand out.
For every new product we can sit and think how to present it in such way that it gives the user relevant concise information to read not just a bunch of marketing bla blas and engage them in such way that they don't just scroll for the show.
Kinda agree with you. Nice looking site, but have no idea what they are selling.
I'm not sure where you got the phrase "make the world a better place" from that site, but I didn't see it or anything like it.
I think you might be missing the fact that this is a showcase for their product and the intended target audience (IT security professionals) would understood immediately what this product is attempting to do.
Showing off what makes it different from current solutions is the intention of the site and I think it accomplishes that task pretty well. I have next to no experience in that field and even with barely skimming through it, I understood exactly what they were marketing. Beyond that, there are definitely links to further information on the site.
I mean, how do you expect a site that's intended to market a product to not engage in "a bunch of marketing bla blas"?
I know its simple, but I really need to up my Canvas game... The effect is great
Beautiful mockups, I'm not feeling the gradient buttons. I like the idea, it's just the transition is so hard. They look good in the line elements, just not the buttons.
Logo kinda reminds me of Nod
It looks very nice and feels fluid, but I pity those who don't sit on Macs or other setups with decent monitors. The lack of contrast is going to kill it for a lot of people.
Some really nice work here. I think the site flows really well and looks very cool.
My very nitpick-y issues:
I found trying to read the text in front of the rotating circle a bit nauseating, but I'm also quite susceptible to that. In addition, the hover states on the buttons feel overdone to me.
I'm not sure I understand the importance of the get started button on page 2. I think this relates to the generally low depth of information throughout the site. If its a button to shortcut the more sales-y details of the rest of the site, it may as well go on the first page.
The layout on 4 causes the explanation copy to get a little lost. Having the header and body copy separated by a full column image causes a bit of strain.
The FAQ page is quite stark in comparison to the rest of the site. It feels like it got forgotten. I'm actually wondering if a file didn't load or something?
edit: Get started is a mailto: link? That was pretty unexpected. Not sure that the copy is totally aligned with the action.
Ohhh I like the fixed background type for each section.
Hehe "Soinkpass" in the tab title on this page: http://sonikpass.com/faq.html
This is fantastic. Love how fluid it is, and the use of large fixed background type is beautiful. Well done!
I like how it doesn't highjack my scroll. nice
