In the Summer months, it’s normal to see website trends diversify, with different sites moving in different directions. That holds true in this month’s collection, but for one growing trend: horizontal scrolling. Expect to see more of that in the coming months. Enjoy!

We don’t spend enough time designing original sites; everything is too regimented. Coffee Supreme bucks that trend with a site that manages to feel both retro and contemporary.

The portfolio of Manuel Moreale is a minimalist delight, using subtle grey cards, and highly-detailed typography, to create a sophisticated look that entices a great range of clients.
Garonzi’s excellent site uses a horizontal scroll with a sheer effect to enliven a case study slideshow. Tapping through into one of the case studies is immersive and thoroughly engaging.
