    I'm loving the visuals of this site. I did have a little hiccup with the skull at first (slow connection, fwiw) but after that everything seems to be running smoothly. Beyond the aesthetic, I really appreciate the way you laid out your work with the problem, approach, etc. Labeling the "about" page WTF is a really nice, fun take on a generally mundane element.

    One thing I was a little curious about was why the work / wtf / fun order was switched on the homepage vs the internal navigation. Aside from that, my only tiny tiny note is that generally the underline isn't continued to the closing punctuation as you currently have it under "ISL," and "music." on the WTF page (sorry, old book designer instincts die hard).

      Thanks so much for the thoughtful feedback!

      I went back and forth on the menu ordering a lot. My logic was that in a list, like in interior pages, or on the mobile homepage, it made more sense for WTF to be the final item (or maybe not?), but I liked having it superimposed on top of the skull at desktoppy sizes. I may change that to make it consistent tonight.
