Fullscreen Parallax Scene
London’s House of Agricole Rhum.
Filled with Polynesian decor and expertly crafted tiki cocktails, descending the stairs into The Beachcomber tiki bar will transport you to a tropical paradise—without the need to leave Central London. The team at The Beachcomber recognised the need to modernise their DIY website. So they approached Smith-Cordell Design with a brief to include the merriment of the venue in a new tiki-themed website design.
Making it fun with interactive design.
During the discovery meeting with The Beachcomber, they wanted the venue's spirit to shine through on the website. They wanted something fun, interactive, and different from the average cocktail bar’s website. To create the feeling of interactivity from the initial moment a user accesses the website, the hero section of the homepage is a parallax beach illustration featuring a beach bar. As the user scrolls, it feels like a camera is lowering in the scene until it moves behind the long grass, revealing the rest of the website. As the user scrolls further, they are greeted with tiki masks and tropical fauna framing the content.
