25 free, scrolling plugins for awesome experiences The art of creating a website these days is learning how to create an online experience. Many of these experiences are extensions of a brand or person and are relayed via different colors, fonts, etc. Thanks to awesome advancements in technologies, we can do a lot of stuff with our websites that we couldn’t do a few years ago. We are taking the experience from dry and drab to fun and fab. One of the trendiest techniques to have fun with is scrolling. We can create full stories that move horizontally or vertically across a screen utilizing many different scenes; we can create effects that make it seem like bubbles and other shapes are taking over screens; we can create backgrounds that seem to have depth of field.

What Your Web Design Says About You (Infographic) Font and color choices in a website say certain things about the owner of the site.

Related Content About the Author Facebook Integration At The Coca Cola Village  If you’ve been wondering how to seamlessly integrate an experiential event with Facebook, here is how to do it, in real time! Again, the guys over in Israel are doing some amazing work, this time it was Publicis (E-dologic) and Promarket who have developed an innovative experiential event for Coca Cola Israel that synced everyone who participated, live with their friends on Facebook. The Coca Cola Village is a special summer experiential event in Israel, in 2010, they decided to run the event through Facebook, with teenagers needing to collect 10 Coca Cola caps each, gather eight friends who did the same and then register online through Facebook to gain exclusive entry. When they got to the Coca Cola Village, they were asked to setup a special wrist band that would securely hold their Facebook login / password to swipe when starting each activity. Every time you swiped, it instantly updated your status with what you were doing at the event, keeping your friends up to date in real time.

jInvertScroll - A lightweight jQuery horizontal Parallax scrolling plugin jInvertScroll - A lightweight jQuery horizontal Parallax Plugin What is it? It's a lightweight plugin for jQuery that allows you to move in horizontal with a parallax effect while scrolling down. It's extremely easy to setup and requires nearly no configuration. Note: By using this plugin, we expect that you know the limitations of horizontal parallax scrolling, for instance if the screen height is smaller than the content, the content will be clipped, but this plugin is intended anyway for webdesigners and -developers, so we think that you know what you're doing. ;-)

Parallax Scrolling Tutorial .net Magazine In the April 2013 issue of .net magazine I chatted to indie game developers about how easy it now is for web professionals to create an iOS and Android game.

Honda Takes Social Gaming for a Test Drive It's not unusual for a large car company like Honda to advertise its newest release on a billboard — unless, of course, that billboard exists in a virtual gaming community on Facebook. To promote the U.S. launch of its latest sport hybrid coupe, the Honda CR-Z, the company initiated a two-month advertising campaign in Car Town, a newly released Facebook game that allows players to use virtual currency to purchase, customize and store hundreds of vehicles in their own virtual garages. Players can then use these vehicles to take road trips and complete challenges to earn points to purchase additional vehicles and car-related products and services. The game was launched by Cie Games on August 9. During the two-month promotion period, clickable ads featuring a rendering of the Honda CR-Z will appear on all in-game billboards. These billboards are stationed next to player garages, where users begin every game session.

The Art of the Facebook Page Design Everyday more and more businesses around the world are creating presences on Facebook. Some companies opt to bring users directly to the page wall or other tabs (e.g. info, photos, RSS/blog, discussions and links) and use product images or company logos instead of more elaborate landing pages. Regardless of where a user lands when they first arrive, something needs to capture their attention.
