SXSW - South by Southwest 10th Web Awards Winner - Best CSS

The 'html' category


A thin blue line drawn by a biro guide the Nana website ’s user to do an horizontal tour along what this clothing shop offer and feedbacks all displayed in a series of images. (unhappily insterted in old nested table tags…this is real vintage style)

Pasquin o Panfleto

The ‘drawing showcase’ Pasquín o Panfleto is the first dynamic site-a weblog- listed in these pages. The hp shows a series of images with ‘category’ and ‘comments’ hidden links below; every page related to a post (like this) has a different width (set inline in “content” div) and display the artwork with on the right […]

Bluesfear Worm

The ‘side by side images’, a constant of the horizontalway, aren’t only pictures placed one near the previous: they sometimes describe a journey, an evolution, a step-by-step in a long walking towards right ( = the end or the next page?). The Bluesfear Worm explode in the first screenshot ready to show this infinite mutation, […]

Radio Zen (CZG)

Instead of the absolute positioning like in the previous CZG designs, the text sections of Radio Zen use the more comfortable float CSS property to be placed side by side, avoiding the calculation and the setting of the distance from the left side of the body. The two menus are displayed inline under the content, […]

Beca / Voices

Beca / Voices is a simple but beautiful example of how Javascript can help for a better navigation of a horizontal site: the content of this site -the introduction of a house music vocalist- is splitted in the three section (containing title+subtitle+one paragraph) that could be displayed after a scroll on the left of the […]

Shin Tanaka

“Custom Designed Paper Model Collection” by Shin Tanaka is another nested table showcase of artworks that display them in a series of side-by-side images with same height and width, with below the related title and designer/writer’s logo.

Sandra Wiegard

The sites that follow the horizontal way could find in Javascript a good allied in the search of a better usability. In Sandra Wiegard’s web home there are two examples of this: the implementations are not unobtrusive, but remain interesting. 1)The scrolling of the four pages is accompanied by a menu on the top of […]


Vault49’s site is a piece of pure art inserted in a HTML+CSS (all in one! with very old inline properties and obsolete maps and fonts tags) page displaying big images spaced out by four text section like the “portfolio”-a big div with links inside opening popups-and the “news”,a div that face to a big problem […]

Self-Growth (CZG)

The fourth CZG horizontal design use (this time too) absolute position to place, under the title, two text sections in the header div and four ones (with the same height but diffent width) side by side under an inline menu and before the three other menu lists.

Meghan Petersen

The second photographic portfolio presented is the one by Meghan Petersen: a very long collection of pictures with equal height but different width placed -this time too- side by side in a nested table layout inserted in a (please don’t copy this) HTML frame. The gallery is accompanied by another frame on the top that […]
