      Was all the design and copywriting done in house? It's really superb.

      I just bought a new bed last week! :(

      This looks really good. Trying to decide if it's worth the hassle of returning my current mattress and getting this.

    I was looking at this site last night on my iPad and was so in love. Great design, great copywriting, seemingly great product.

    I just checked it on my computer and I was sooo disappointed to see they use scrolljacking :'(

      Fair comment- it's a divisive technique to be sure. We really loved the sliding animations as a design paradigm, and scroll jacking was the best way we thought of to make sure that the user saw all the intended content at once, without seeing the bottom half of the next slide.

      To me its a necessary evil that can be effective in some contexts, and I think we were pretty successful on that page

        I want to first say that I really like what you guys are doing, and I plan on buying a mattress (no joke). I was sending the site out to some friends last night, gushing over the design and copywriting.

        I still don't consider it a necessary evil, and I still hate it, but I think the thing that would make this much easier to deal with would be to speed up the delay between my scroll gesture and the reaction of the page. Currently there is what feels like almost a full second that passes between when I scroll and when the site moves.

    It's awesome to see a product such as a mattress with such a well designed site, the actual product looks like a Roku with that little purple tag.

    This shipping slide is super dope, I wanna see it being unboxed: https://caspersleep.com/?utm_source=youtube

    Fascinating offering and seamless website. Each section seemed to flow into the next. With calls to explore further around every corner of the site, and rich text/imagery teasing the user on, the minimal and well laid-out design allows the content to shine and makes discovering the product easy.

      agreed.

      But I wonder how much science is in the mattress for actually being better for you. I've discovered that lots of these "comfortable" mattresses are actually terrible for your spine etc.

      I'd love to see a landing page centred on that metric :S

        I’m a huge fan of latex pillows. Would love to give Casper a shot, if only they were in Australia.

        Can confirm about the problems that this kind of mattresses make. For a person even with mild back problems, this kind of soft mattress is a really huge pain in the... back (sorry for the pun). The best mattresses are the ones that are rigid and stay rigid over the years.

          They actually do talk about this a bit on this page. Second scroll area. Seems that it is soft, but with a more rigid layer on top.

          Programmer of the site here —

          Our latex layer on top is really responsive and bouncy, definitely not soft and sinky like traditional foam beds. Your pain point (also sorry for the pun) is one that we thought a lot about, and chose the latex specifically to address it.
