Scrolling, scrolling, scrolling
So much of our inspiration comes from the interactions of our team members. We recently polled our team and asked, “How long are you willing to scroll on a website?” The first thing we learned is that scrolling can be measured by time, physical distance on a page, or finger fatigue.
