    Fair enough. I'm simply arguing for its use as a design technique on occasion. Something something right tool for the job.

    Scrolling through again, I'll admit that it takes a few mouse-wheel flicks too many to move through the sections. In that regard, sure, a bit irritating.

    But this is also the homepage.

    In a sea of HERO IMAGE + SUPERIMPOSED GREETING MESSAGE + CTA BUTTON or LEFT ALIGNED SIGN UP FORM + MACBOOK/IPAD/IPHONE SCREEN MOCKUP, something like this stands out. It's interesting. I applaud their efforts.

    Looks to me like a lot of time was spent crafting a highly deliberate message not intended to be skimmed over. Without knowing the details of the project, calling it a bad idea across the board seems a bit shortsighted. Is it a risk? Definitely. But with the craft that so obviously went into this site, I'd say the folks working on it were aware of their decisions.

    One step further, components.underscores.me starts you with a basic layout.

    I have to agree. I never understood the immediate scroll-jack hate. If it's paired with solid content, it can be an effective way deliver a story.

    Thought the very same thing. Chuckles were had.

    Biased because they're local to Oregon. I've always appreciated their solid design and commitment to quality through and through. Proud to say I ordered directly from their site even when Amazon was cheaper.

    Loving that mobile menu icon. The rest of the site is also incredible.
