Idea for Web Design Website

This post is more than 18 months old. Since technology changes to rapidly, this content may be out of date (but that's not always the case). Please remember to verify any technical or programming information with the current release.

So I’ve been looking at some parallax plugins with Javascript and CSS3 animations… and it got me to thinking: I have a great idea for a web site design firm.

I would use the parallax feature and have the user scroll down. This could either be the home page or a “how we work” type page.

First frame is zoomed in on a guy’s face that looks like he just had an idea. Text something like: “You’ve got your great idea. Let us build it for you. Scroll down to see how”

Next frame, show background of a diner, and closer focus of a diner table. On the table is a napkin that has sketches of the next design for a website. Across on the table you can see a notebook and someone’s excited hands. text: “first, we brainstorm and make sure we know your vision. Oh, and we love coffee too.”

Next frame shows a designer in front of a photoshop interface mocking up a design for this tool. It should be slightly blurry and slightly desaturated. “Our designers get to work”

Next frame: show the design in still blurry desaturated layout standing by itself against a vague background. Have logos of common services like facebook and twitter appear from the sides and tumble into the design. “Our programmers get to work”

Next frame: the design becomes crisp, properly colored, and a lens flare or a sparkle adorns it very vaguely and quickly. “You get your website” or something like that

2nd last frame: it zooms out to excited hands holding a mobile phone and that design transforms to appears as the mobile view of it. Some text suggests that you can get it on any platform.

Last frame: shows thought guy from first frame with giant smile in front of a huge mansion and a private jet with a shirt with the logo from the design. “With our help, your project makes you a billion dollars*” then have small print “this may be an exaggeration” - or something like this.

At any rate, I’m sure the idea would evolve - but I think this would be a fun use of parallax to demonstrate the process of creating a website in a fun, unique, and potentially funny/quirky way.
