Storytelling Web Experiences

In 2012, one thing was for sure the Parallax effect was everywhere, but many sites did not execute well. I like to think that from the Parallax effect, spawned a better way of telling stories only. Sites used the effect in subtle ways and truly let the story tell itself.
