    This thread is designed to be the antithesis of the "Why is web design so awful today?" thread. If we can have 13+ pages of complaints then we can have some nice designs shown here. I'm looking for flat, clean, modern, stylish, interactive sites. Sites that make you go "hey, that's pretty cool". Some awesome branding and layout. Great colours. That sort of thing.

    First up, here's some websites that make nice use of the parallax scrolling feature.

    The Firewatch landing page is nice. The different layers move at different speeds as you scroll. It's Lovely vector graphics with beautiful use of colour. The red based colour pallette for the sunset goes well with the word fire. It actually loads slightly different graphics when you're on a mobile too. The man on the ridge moves down into the valley. Nicely thought out.

    Peugeot went all out with this story for the hybrid 4 system. Parallax effects used at different orientations to mimic the different style of comic book frames.

    These guys get a mention for that fantastic landing page tag line.

    What a wonderfully retro landing page. And this is a bootstrap design.

    And this. Well this is amazing. Load it on a desktop and get your phone ready and follow the instructions

    Edit: too negative for what was intended to be a positive thread :)

    Nice examples, I will think a bit and add a few of my faves for consideration.

    The CSS drawing skills on that site are remarkable.
