The Foo Fighters / Official Artist Site

Drupal Version: 
Why does this website deserve to win?: 

The band is iconic and they needed a website to match. We focused on dramatic imagery and only the necessary content when you first go to the site. On our internal pages, we focused on bold, simple content playing with large typography and interesting display. We used a parallax technique to provide an alternate view of the music section. We also custom shot all of their releases so it can be visually integrated in a seamless manner.

The Foo Fighters Site
How It Was Done (optional): 

We used a number of jQuery plugins including jQuery UI, We implemented
lazy loading for images so that images outside of the viewport aren't
loaded on page load. Twitter was integrated in a number of places and
we've enhanced the the hover action on certain icons with css3
The discography is a custom parallax scrolling implementation that we
integrated into Drupal. A good portion of this site was built at
DrupalCon Chicago.
