We started the December meeting with a look at an article about Designing A Website For 2014. We have covered some of these topics at past meetings, and of course we are working on flat design now.
One of the topics was parallax scrolling, and we discussed that design approach a bit. To see more examples, check out these sites:

We then returned to the topic of styling a tiled navigation menu. Our example uses a Google font. We took a detour to typography.com for some examples of fonts that are specifically designed for web use.
We finished up the meeting with some work on our tiled menu using floating to re-position the items in the navigation list. We will pick up from there next month.
