Something I worked on recently: an ‘infowidget’

Here’s a widget we’ve cooked up for a quick celebratory post at BigDoor.

Cheers to our ace designer, Chad Jacobsen, for the infographic and for rolling with the countless creative gyrations. I love that he can cook up such substantial visual elements in basically 0 seconds flat. I enjoyed writing the underlying CSS/JS and markup; first time in a long time I’ve put together a widget like this. Maybe the first since FeedBurner Email?

Also, if you like that cool parallax scrolling effect – e.g., how the clouds scroll along in the background more slowly, creating an artificial sense of depth – head over to Jon Raasch’s site to learn more about the JQuery plugin that powers it. It Just Works.
