Bagigia: This is probably one of the most creative websites out there. Not only does the site feature parallax design, it's page navigation is completely unique and interactive.

As you transition from page to page you get to experience the unique features of the Bagigia products, it's truly a unique and interactive experience.

IndoFolio: What I love about this page is it's unique parallax design that involves horizontal scrolling. As you transition between pages you find that the background picture transforms and moves with you making page navigation fun and exciting.

Thibaud: This awesome portfolio design is one of my favorites because it allows users to select their preferred method of site navigation. You can alter and change the way that you navigate the portfolio by selecting various styles at the bottom of the screen.

Dulla: I love the animation and hand drawn illustrations featured on this site. The landing page is so creative, it draws users in and makes them want to learn what the site is all about.

Looking to Get Social?


It seems like everyday a new and innovative social network is popping up. I become totally entranced by each and every APP or website that offers the ability for me to connect with the world across the internet. Do you ever feel the same?

In addition, adding social icons to your portfolio allows you to reach a wider range of people. Each social network tends to reach a different type of audience and if you can tap into each of those different groups of people you will dramatically increase the reach and distribution of your content.

There are so many different ways to get social, but having icons for your readers to click through on your blog or website is one of the easiest ways to connect. I've selected a few of my favorites from Creative Market to help you start getting social:
