Kimili is the personal site of Michael Bester

This site has a bit of an identity crisis. I’ve called it my “personal site” for a while now, but it is also supposed to serve as a portfolio site for my consultancy. Frankly, it does neither particularly well, and as a result, I’ve let it languish for a long time now.
I’ve decided it makes the most sense to create two separate sites—a new kimili.com that is more of a portfolio site that supports and showcases the work that I do, and a separate personal site, where I can post my occasional ramblings on various topics.
I’ve just pushed live the latter of the two, my new personal site, michaelbester.com.

Over the holidays, I recieved a Kindle 4 and have been really happy with it. One area where I found it to be lacking, however, was its absence of a cover or sleeve, so I looked for something to cover it up. When I found the site for Byrd & Belle, I knew I had found what I was looking for.

Yesterday, some colleagues and I were bandying about the URLs of a few Parallax Scrolling sites as sources of design inspiration. They’re the sort of sites that have been cropping up in the past year that do funky things as you scroll through them. Like this, that, and these over here. I’m not going to give a tutorial on how to build them—you can find those elsewhere. Instead, I want to focus on the the choice of whether or not to use parallax scrolling as a design tool.
