Yeah, who needs a web designer. I'm sure those examples you gave were made by some auto-website builder or template.

I think Warren's message was sarcastic and that he appreciates the talent it takes to produce any meaningful design asset. And that a cool design doesn't always mean it's effective in communicating your message.

I'm a designer and am happy to provide any insight for those in need of a new marketing site or other marketing or brand assets.

There are a ton of Parallax themes for Wordpress at ThemeForest. Make sure you buy from a reputable seller who is rated well with good support. Best regards, Tony Zeoli - sent from my iPhone

I'm quite sure those examples had heavy budgets and design talent, but I'm not at that stage yet.  Those were for exemplary purposes to refer to what I was looking for.

I'm pre-MVP and therefore resource constrained...

I will look closer at Squarespace....might be something there...thanks Jimmy...and will also check out Wordpress - thanks Anthony

Totally understand, Jeff. I looked into Wix for you, but it looks like they still don't have a template with that feature.

Often I find that the parallax can get a bit disorienting. Unless it's implemented like it is on http://cyclemon.com. That site makes good use of the feature.

We started with Wix (we created our first website in a few hours and regularly and easily updated it). Now that we have more reosurces, we plan to move to Wordpress with the help of a web designer. Then hopefully continue doing updates ourselves.
