Here at Krisco Designs we don't kid ourselves, we are full on nerds. There was a short period where we would deny it, but the evidence was overwhelming. When we find new and cool plugins to put on websites, we giggle like school girls gushing over the latest Justin Bieber album. However, we don't think that this is a bad thing. We fully embrace our nerdiness and we want to show you how you can benefit from it. Take a look at the latest new things that we find exciting about web design.

This is called the Parallax effect that a lot of new websites use. Although the parralax effect has been around for a few years now, it is only now becoming common to see it on new websites. It is essentially an effect that holds the background in place while the user scrolls. If you'd like to learn more about parallax or use it on your own website click here

Unfortunatley the Parallax effect does not work on mobile devices such as iPads and iPhones.

The Rain Effect

Another cool plugin that the Krisco team found is the Rain effect. This is an easy script to install on your page that makes use of an HTML canvas. If you'd like to read more about it please click here.

CSS3 Animations

We're not going to sugar coat it, we think that CSS3 animations are the bee's knees, the cats meow, the belle of the ball, the-... well you get the picture. These easy to use effects get away from the use of JQuery, so they don't slow down your site and add some much needed "eye candy" to dull websites. Just take a look at a few examples below, and if you'd like to see some more effects take a look at this website or this website.
