Great-looking, long one-page websites: three’s a trend

January 7, 2011 No Comment

You know those incredibly long one-page websites that sell e-books. Unlike the e-book ones, there are some pages that use this sort of design that aren't awful - in fact, they're good.

On the basis that three is a trend, here are three I've seen in the last day (four now). Check them out - they all look much better than these screenshots of the top bit suggest...

Yes, that last one's a page on a larger website, but whatever (it's not like there's much in the way of site navigation). Three's a trend I tell you.

(And the other trend I'm liking is the use of media queries to make one URL look like it's multiple pages - click on the navigation links here or here or here and then resize your browser and do it again.)
