Don’t forget to add this post to your bookmarks, as I’m pretty sure that next time you’ll make a website, you’ll probably want to refer to it for some inspiration.
A remarkable theme that loads everything via AJAX, and presents content in a desktop-esque feel. You can even choose from a few different wallpapers (click the icon on bottom left corner). The icons are links to posts and videos that the author has choosen to be on the desktop. When clicking on an icon, the post content comes up in a resizeable, draggable window. You can also minimize the ‘windows’ and bring them up again (you can see a few windows I’ve minimized, in the screenshot above).
Will someone ask him to release the source so that we can all learn from it? :)
Devthought has draggable, moving, animated clouds and sky, probably depending on real-world climate (I say this because unfortunately, while taking the screenshot, the clouds were not present – damn the sun and bright skies).
I have not described this design in the title for a lack of better words, but the boxes on the page move around depending on how you move the mouse over them. The box over which you hover also pops up with more brightnes. Mouse coordinates are shown live on the top left corner.
Icondock has a shopping tray to which you can load icons for purchase (by clicking plus buttons on icons), and the preview will load in the shopping tray, and the total price of purchase will be updated real-time – all without reloading the page.
The info boxes are pushed down when you resize to a lower width, and they come back up when resized to a larger width.
When you resize to a width just more than required for the first two columns of ifElse, the right sidebar repositions itself to a footer. For larger resolutions, the footer is absent, and the sidebar is visible.
