    Scroll hijacking?!?! Seriously?!?!

      It is a beautiful website but I got fed up of trying to fight with the scroll to see what I wanted to see. It would be so much better without it.

      The menu is a nice idea, I have not seen that done as neatly anywhere else. Contact could do with a margin to the right though.

      Also, the text on the case study images at the bottom of the homepage is being cut off on hover on smaller (but not really small) screens.

      It is a bit slow in places too, with some odd loading going on.

      Overall though, the look and feel is lovely.

        Off-topic. This is good constructive criticism, instead of "Scroll hijacking?!?! Seriously?!?!" that gives no value. Just saying.

          If we're being honest and you compare the two comments that relate to the scroll hijacking; it's just one saying "seriously?!" obviously voicing his discontent, and the other saying "it would be much better without it", obviously a bit of paraphrasing here, but there really isn't that much difference in the comments.

          In the end it's up to the designer to deconstruct the feedback and make something constructive of it.

            I got your point and you are, in my opinion, partially right. Still, I think (personal preference probably) that getting descriptive or verbose feedback is better because it address the issue directly than trying to guess what's wrong.

            Imagine that 8 of the 10 comments were like that, trying to deconstruct feedback of different people, with different views, from different cultures in a two words sentence.

            You probably are smart and can figure out what that means, but what about new designers that they think doing scroll hijacking is OK, then they read "Scroll hijacking?!?! Seriously?!?!", then what input they will get if they are still learning?

            I probably sounded like a dick, and I should have elaborated more my comment, I apologize for that.

      I'd say thew same thing--the scroll hijacking was not really working properly, as I would constantly be accidentally scrolling past the information I was trying to get to. I'd suggest that if you're going to do scroll hijacking, at least force the scroll to only jump one section at a time. Currently, it seems to jump further down the page than you want it to 75% of the time.

      The site does look beautiful, though.

      You could have provided this feedback with the same level of directness but with class.
