This is an HTML5 site that looks really nice and has really interesting interactivity as you scroll. Scrolling works just like it would in any other browser, but as you scroll down hands move up and reveal more content, words come in from the side and the design changes as you scroll.

This is an example of minimalist design, with simple colors and images used to highlight the very serious subject. The simple graphics and colors help keep the tone light even while discussing something as terrible as slavery. Keep this in mind when you are designing for something that is very dark or serious. Sometimes, to get people to take the content more seriously, you have to lighten the mood.

The only thing I don’t like about this page is what happens after you take the survey. I could not get back to the home page. The site is set up to redirect you to the results page with your results regardless of what is written in the URL. It was very frustrating, and in fact, in order to take the screen shot for this review, I had to open the page in a completely different browser, after clearing my cache and cookies didn’t have an effect. This is unfortunate, because the information on the home page is valuable as well, and I wanted to go back and re-read it.
