Soleil Noir’s 2012 wishes is just plain fun to play with. Vertical parallax meets bright happy colors, simple messaging, and some animations to add another slight layer of wow. The nav on the side is neat. Choosing a colored dot is like picking an easter egg not knowing what treat is inside. I like the illustration style too. It ties in with the bold colors and also has a layered feel that marries well with the whole parallax deal.
