Are there industry standard jobs boards where I could find a designer to fine tune some of the visual elements of the site I’m building? (I’ve only ever used Fiverr)
What about for someone that can token-gate the pages behind a wall that’s unlocked with NFTs? Is that a different skill set? A “web3 dev” or something?
Specifically on the design question, I’m wondering if it’s even possible for someone to build a static site that mixes text with GIFs in a similar way to this: Meryl Streep’s One Weird Trick - The New York Times
While the URL you shared is unique in the way it is moving images around, I think you will find people right about scrolling pages as Parallax scrolling. Technically, parallax scrolling tends to refer to adding some amount of three-dimensionality using two-dimensional imagery, but again I think any designer you looked for and said “create me a parallax view that does this” will understand what you need and can apply similar logic.
Here is an example I found on Codepen that does not exactly do what you want but shows the concepts.
If you are still on the lookout for someone I would be happy to help you, as I am an experienced Jekyll developer.

Cheers and Have a great day ahead,
