Joshua you're a great designer & web-developer. Really like what I see. I can see it's designed for big displays as my macbook 13" comes pixels to short. 

I'm amazed by the performance (FPS) of the web site.

I do see why you have the getting dark for the background, but it's activating a little to early to my taste. I think when you activate it when starting the slide is the right time to do it, then you know the guest is interested in that part of the site.

Another thing is easy to solve. The browser title telling me that the home page is home (duh :-)). maybee the companies name is a better browser title.

Thanks for the feedback and your kind words Martijn :) 

I have updated the title of the homepage - good catch. Thank you.

I agree about the black fade... I have been adjusting that a bunch of times to try to find the right balance. 

Still a lot of work to do on the site. Little by little.

Hey joshua - it is very stylish indeed. One issue I am having is dragging the sliders sideways is temperamental for me. Most of the time they just bounce back to the start. I am on Chrome / OSX. Anyone else having this issue?

Perhaps it needs 2 triggers.

1. if the image in in the center of the screen & if last scroll event is silent for x amount of time trigger darkness

2. if user starts to drag.

hmmm strange. I am also on chrome OSX. I will have to experiment more. I am noticing that in dev tools sometimes the hover events fire more than once on the same object and can eat memory. Totally need to change how I am applying the event listeners - and maybe destroy them every time also. 

Thanks for the feedback guys.

When I look on my desktop 1440x900 the copy font isn't readable. I can't finish one paragraph before loosing it and my eyes get tired. It's too big and very little contrast. Kinda get a upface feeling, maybe also todo with distance from monitor. When I scale in the browser to 2 steps smaller it's already better and I can read it already a lot easier.

On the main page http://luxcommunications.ca/

It's all nice and has nice touches! But found it hard to use and the fading at best annoying. For example I scrolled down with mousewheel and suddenly it starts darken - lighten and I don't really get it at first why. Also the "drag" arrows when hovering are a nice touch, so I start dragging and  am kinda surprized that there's no inertiam it's kinda sticky and have to drag-drag-drag, personally not that nice. It may would be nicer it it snaps to the next one. After dragging suddenly it scrolls back to the first and I haven't done anything (ah now see, it's when I "mouseout" on the browser window), again wired and annoying.

Just my honest feedback from first time observation.

Adrian - I had the same thing when scrolling too fast one one of the entries in Firefox on Windows - it decided to slide back to the start for some reason.

Other than that, great site and unique look - certainly not straining my eyes reading it :)

Hey Pete, the problem happens sometimes and not others. I'll reload the page and it works ok, and then reload again and it won't work at all, no matter what speed nor how fast I drag. Not sure if it is related to image not loading in time or what, but definitely not functional when it's mis-behaving. I am sure Joshua will get it sorted out though :)

You guys are tough. :) My impression is that the site is awesome, something different with lots to discover and great visual rewards. It made me want to stick around. I've found this site and the one that Felix posted to be some of the most visually interesting and engaging sites I've seen recently.

I think it's a nice design, Designers should show of their skills on their own websites :)

I also notice some JS quirks though. The dark background not always works, and I would much prefer "click/animation" to the dragging.

A detail that I would definitely change is the italic "manifesto". I get the feeling that that's an artificial Italic and not the one designed for the typeface (the strange diagonal dot gave me that clue)

hi joshua you are a great designer, very innovative and a excellent firt impression, just a set more speed to the pointer cursor when is onhover over the slides, if i click fast in other section of your site, i select the image and not run correctly, i just need wait a sec for the manual slide function

...nice portfolio site!

But I feel so clumsy when I drag the scrollers! It's my personal taste but I would prefer classical left and right arrows in this case.

Anyway, good job!

      Hello,
      Just a mention that today I have received this newsletter from The Whale : https://thewhale.cc/91
      And Processwire is part of it 🙂
    • By schwarzdesign
      We recently finished a relaunch of  the website of the consulting firm Engfer Consulting: engfer-consulting.de. Built with ProcessWire 3 and Bootstrap 4.
      Features
      Bilingual website (UPDATE: The English page is now available! the English page is inactive at the moment, as the content is not ready yet) A strong, simple data structure for job offers and news, allowing for a custom search page and fulltext search Sectioned content-blocks built with a Repeater Matrix (ProFields) Reusable components available as page reference fields Automatic generation of open graph-tags, with manual overrides available on each page Contact forms with a custom recipient depending on the current page Modules used:
      ProFields ProForms Sitemap Cookie Management Banner Duplicator Tracy Debugger Wire Mail SMTP Admin Links in FrontEnd Technical insights
      Most of the content is built using a Repeater Matrix field. Each section has an optional heading and a select-field for background colors. Some of the sections available include:
      Text blocks (a repeater-field for multi-column text) Feeds / listing of the latest job offers or news (with a field to control the number of entries shown) Displaying a team member or quote (selected through a page reference field) Downloadable files (a multivalue field for file uploads) Those sections can be combined and stringed together arbitrarily, so any number of page templates showing different contents can be built. The job offers template, in contrast, features fixed fields for taxonomy assignment, description, contact person, preview image and so on, making the job offer pages uniform and easily accesible.
      The (technically) most interesting part of the site is the job overview page, which contains custom filters that are automatically generated from the available taxonomy terms.
      The stylesheets are written in SASS, built with Bootstrap 4. Only the base and grid SASS files of Bootstrap are included, along with the Bootstrap components that we ended up using. Using Bootstrap 4 as a framework in this way makes development & styling blazingly fast, once all the utility classes are commited to muscle memory ...

      Not new, but a website I've worked on for a year or so in continous development.
      http://supercarownerscircle.com/
      I originally inherited the site from another web design company - upgraded PW and over the year added ecommerce using the Stripe module and a custom integration, revamped the frontend and added lots of new templates.
      Also did some frontend work on the shopify shop.

      I just relaunched my portfolio website. It's my first ajax driven website using ProcessWire as a CMS.
      Its a showcase of some of my work as well as a digital playground to improve my coding skills.

      If you encounter any bugs or have feedback, feel free to share

      Hi guys, as I would need your support. I state to be a beginner and I met the application the day before yesterday for the first time.
      I'm creating a manga reading site using wiremanga and I need to know how I can incorporate altervista advertising. (this is my site if you could serve http://dgtread.altervista.org/)
      I have also modified some elements of both the .css and php files but despite saving they are not updated.
