Tuesday Thoughts

Thinking about how I have always been partial to the way handwriting looks from the back of a piece of paper. An interaction that I would love to do for a portfolio site would be to have pieces of paper that initially showed the back of the page, with the handwritten words reversed, and then they flipped over to show the details of the project.

Initially I thought to have the pages flip on a mouseover (like the mouseover on http://irabanana.com/ ) but I am not sure how that would look on a mobile site. Or if the visibility would just end up being confusing as to why the text was all “messed up”, since backwards text is not a natural mapping pattern for providing information on a website. Would it even be clear that mousing over the text could turn it into something readable?
