        More-so: learn the techniques, then use your imagination while implementing them.

        In this specific case; realise that a lot of what we do on the web, has an origin in the real world, then take that one step further.

      It's really not that complicated. With all those lossy JPGs, it'll be a pretty underwhelming experience for anyone with a Retina screen, that's for sure.

      Great design, sure, and it would have impressed me if it was an email design rather than a website—for it to be truly impressive to me as a developer, I would like to have seen it built using <canvas>. That would have impressed me.

      Here's a basic tutorial on the concept:
