So apparently if you deal with a subject like community land trusts you need the website to keep your attention. These guys wanted a fun, out-of-the-box type of solution that involved horizontal scrolling mixed in with this lithograph art style one of the partners is interested in. Oh and they wanted it to be c5’d and reasonably mobile capable.
While it wasn’t built to be mobile first (I could see some sort of optimization down the road maybe), some things needed to be addressed for touch. For one, they wanted scrolling div/iframe type areas on the main home page spread. I tried a whole mess of things and ended up with this DW Scroll Plugin (http://www.dyn-web.com/code/scroll/). I only have the one license, but I think it may be worth getting the developer license for it. It is nicer to customize I think than jsscroll and actually works pretty well in both screen and touch environments.
It does all sorts of jQuery resizing, sidescrolling, hashchange, cycle, fancybox, embedded pdf zaniness too. HTML5 Boilerplate, CSS3 Trannies, Google webfonts, and probably some other things I’m missing. Kind of a weird, but kind of cool site.
