Conveying Functionality and Motion in Site Design by GOBAG

Much like its product, GOBAG’s website design centres around efficiency with a particular focus on finer details to enable seamless navigation with a thematic thread of movement throughout.

Diagrammatic animations pack and unpack, providing simple instructions as you scroll. They are joined by other subtle pockets of motion, creating an apt sense of momentum and discovery while bringing the key features of the travel pack to the foreground.

Online Backup: The Best Cloud Backup Services

After an extensive review spread over many weeks, we feel that CrashPlan is the best online backup service at the moment as it has the strongest all-around tool-set compared to all other cloud backup services. After that, we have Backblaze, then followed by the ever so sleek and minimal Carbonite service. But that begs the question: What is a cloud backup service and who is it for? Before delving into all of the details, it would be prudent to understand how an average cloud backup affects your life or your company.
