I'm interested in some not-too-technical ('less you 'splain it, Lucy) comments focused on studio/business web sites (that are not outsourced) in terms of the decisions you made in designing and setting it up, with easy-to-use site generators like Weebly/WIX/GoDaddy/Wordpress etc.
Topic of the moment: parallax scrolling. WIX sez: "Parallax scrolling is a term ascribed to the visual effect of your background image moving slower than an image placed in your foreground. Your end result is a background that dramatically reveals itself at a slower pace than the rest of your page."
Me, I get twitchy with too many things moving in too many dimensions and will leave the page. And yet, done well, the effects may be stunning, pleasant, and even a bit seductive---which then begs the marketing question, does that translate into someobody being at all more likely to purchase your stuff? Probably no data on that, but my hunch is probably does not.
What say you? Do you like viewng a page with the overlays, the zooms, the fades, etc. and why? Or, do you not like that, and why?
