Horizontal scroll on the web

I really like this experiment from Jordan Moore on changing the scroll pattern on his website. While it goes against the users expectation, it does make you take a bit more notice of the page.

Some key things to consider moving forward with this would be…

  • Handling RTL content
  • How does mouse scroll behaviour work with a mouse scroll wheel
  • How you can avoid headings at the bottom of coloums
  • Can you scale typography in the same way you would normally from screen to screen?
