This isn’t your average html5 slide presentation plugin, this has a little spice to it. What’s the difference? It isn’t simply limiting itself to recreating effects you would see in Powerpoint or Keynote, the damn thing utilizes the canvas element and CSS3 3d transforms, scales, and animation to deliver a pretty badass multi-dimensional experience.
You have to check it out. Even if you don’t do web design, it’s just plain fun.

Christmas has come early, HTML5 shopping! Stoked to get folks to use the Beta of our new Stor@e.
This is my favorite part of the announcement:

While we like the idea of moving away from Flash entirely, we honestly have not found a way that can handle our Guided View technology with the level of quality that you’ve come to expect.

Sure, you can have a Guided View experience in HTML5, but right now, it’s not good enough for us. Patience, bros.
Don’t forget to give Feedback!

Very nice. My two favorite interests making the beast with two backs together: interactive and comics. That being said, I have a few knee-jerk notes from an art direction/web design perspective:
while I like the featured content header, I had falsely assumed the content swapped like a content slider (similar to iTunes’ internal store). switching it from static to dynamic will help rotate through all the cool stuff they got.
I’m all about using limited color palettes, but maybe finding a way to get more contrast, the colors are running together a bit. Not necessarily changing the layout just using color or contrast to create a stronger visual hierarchy.
good use of horizontal primary and secondary navigation
My unwarranted critique aside, they’re leaps and bounds above other comic shop related sites. I see great potential. Just a few ui & art-direction tweaks.

I'm a designer/art director/geek that likes to make things on (and off) the internet. I'm black, live in the DFW metroplex, work at an ad agency, and drink alone in the dark on week nights. While being black, I write this blog as a creative outlet.

My work has been featured multiple times by Tumblr, published in NET Magazine, Communication Arts, Adweek, The Webbys, HOW Design, W3 Awards, Web Designer Magazine, Under Consideration, Awwwards, Web Design Ledger, Web Designer Depot, Designworklife, Speckyboy, my mom's Facebook Timeline, and a variety of other publications.

I am currently unmarried, live alone, have no pets, and believe in the Oxford comma. I like eating tacos as well. Pants optional.
