I built this site from the ground up.

This site is built completely from scratch and employs JavaScript parallax effects and CSS animations for smooth motion and an engaging, layered experience.

Data is being pulled from an ajax call to a JSON file containing image urls that are preloaded before the page is considered loaded.

It is optimized on mobile devices, employing two CSS media query breakpoints for tablet and phone layouts.

All graphics were created by me in Photoshop and Illustrator.
