Parallax & Full Screen Design

Powerful, Elegant and Sophisticated Design

The Parallax effect or parallax scrolling in web design is the technique that features layered images that move around the website in different speeds/perspectives creating a nice and interesting 3D illusion.

When used together in harmony with Responsive Design, parallax effects open up a whole new world of creativity for the web. Off-Canvas navigation both on the large screen and especially for smart phones adds a slick flare and out-of-the-way features that dont clutter or cramp the design.

Many of our current projects are using parallax effects to add flare and a "wow" factor to our custom designs. All of our Joomla templates are custom crafted with a grid sytem and CSS classes you can easily apply to your site's elements. Since 2007, we have always designed with our clients in mind. Whether it's a nicely formatted list, zooming and fading effects, color themes or whole sections that expand and contract - each site has your own personal classes that you can use for just about anything you create.

In the coming weeks we'll be posting some fantastic examples of full screen design that incorporates parallax scrolling effects. Check back soon!

Universal Templates

We're also rolling out a brand new feature - Universal Templates! Now, all of our Warp platform-based custom templates for Joomla will be compatible with other platforms as well. Love the design we produced for your company site? Your custom template will work for Wordpress and Drupal as well. Or, use it on that aging straight-html site you made in Dreamweaver back in 2004!

Page Kit

An exciting new cloud product is being released soon! PageKit is a lightweight Content Management System developed by the guys at YooTheme. We're already getting geared up to start designing custom themes for Pagekit, which will be featured on their site for it's release. YES, our Pagekit themes will work on your Joomla site too! Stay tuned for more info on Pagekit..
