    Really nice site.

    My only pet peeve is the length of the staff list. Great photos and presentation, but I kept scrolling thinking there was more content only to hit a dead end after a lot of scrolling.

    Everything else – rad

    My scroll bar has been kidnapped

      yup, I don't understand why so many designers try to reinvent scrolling, it should be native, we all got used to it - it's about learned behaviors

    Really nice site and work.

    This is just plain nitpicking, but on the Alternative Apparel case study they're writing:

    The CMS we developed gives Alternative complete control

    The CMS you developed, you mean the "CMS" Magento developed and you customized.

      I can speak to this since I worked on this project.

      The custom CMS is built on Wordpress, this is allowing Alternative Apparel to customize the grid pages (Example: http://www.alternativeapparel.com/gift-guide/) to highlight their products in whatever way they need.

      Wordpress hooks into Magento and we're leveraging Magento to manage the e commerce infrastructure of the site. So between Magento and and a custom Wordpress admin, Alternative Apparel has complete control over their online shop.

        Thanks for the information, Colleen, appreciate it! Great job on the site!

        Note to self: Stop being an ass.

    Love the cleanliness of the type and amount of white space. Agree with the never ending scrolling list of 'people'. Was expecting bios on hover or a footer somewhere. Got a dead end.

    Really awesome website. I also ended up on it yesterday after checking out the new squarespace page.

    I love the type treatments and the colors and the layout. Doesn't take too many risks but is just executed perfectly.

    My one note: all the photos of people, who are they? There's a lot of them, that's for sure, but there's no other context outside of "a team of..." - I guess I sort of like to see who these people are or what they do or whatever on a page like this. (I'm sure lots of strategy went into not showing this info though as well.)

    Also also: hiding the scrollbar on desktop? Ick.

    Apparently this is built on Squarespace, which is interesting. https://twitter.com/instrument/status/519601382207135745

    Does anybody out there have experience developing sites on Squarespace? If so, I'm curious how building a custom site compares to WordPress?

    I love it when designers try and attempt 'gold' as a colour - sometimes it can just look plain old brown, but this is really nice.

    It doesn't centre or stretch to the width of my screen. Rather is stays sticky to the left at an absolute width of about 66% of my screen size.
