Hi everyone!

I’ve been scouring designs for weeks now, and I’m trying to find something relatively new & definitely different.

For example, http://activatedrinks.com/#/innovation

That website has been around for a while, and slightly different (and worse) than when it first came out.

There used to also be one (that has been changed) that was in German or something similar if memory servers correctly, and it was a design where as when yous scrolled, it felt as if you were moving down streets.

I understand it’s very hard to do a one size fits all with these designs, and I mean no disrespect to the current html5 templates available.

I was just wondering if someone had a couple of links to newer & “more exciting” (forgive me for a lack of a better phrase) html5 designs that they’d seen lately.

A lot of the html5/CSS3 designs seem to start to look alike for me on here after a while of searching. That could be from exhaustion hehe.

Nonetheless, if you’ve come across an amazing template lately…please, let me know!

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read & hopefully respond!

That site uses the “parallax effect” in design. Nothing new. Cool about it is the artwork, because they had good graphic designers to fill the content. Never forget about those guys. Without them, any HTML5 template or script will not look as good. :)

Hey, thanks for the reply. Sorry, I should have clarified better.

When I said newer, I meant newer designs that stray away from the standard template we see here on themeforest. Not the parallax effect itself. I guess what I’m searching for is something that you look at & do a quick double-take & say “WOW!”.

I know this will vary from person-to-person, but I’m just looking for something that makes me feel like I just went from windows 3.1 to windows 8. Hopefully that will make sense :-p

It’s a bit hard to explain exactly what I’m looking for because I haven’t really found it…yet! :-D

But yes, I would love to have a great utilization of the parallax effect as well, but in a way that is unique. Or, at least appears unique.

I’m more indecisive right now than my wife hehe

Will be sure to do so! Thanks for the reply.

I’ve never really used the forums, or any forum, but I’ve gotta say that the Envato community as a whole seems pretty quick to offer advice & assistance.

Well done
