And here's a little slice of the backstory (as well as some sweet screenshots) from the Upstatement blog: http://upstatement.com/blog/2016/02/new-work-mit-technology-review/
Site feels like a newspaper, articles are joy to read, solid work.
This is rad
I love this. No scroll jacking, parallax, or other distractions from the content. You can tell that a lot of user testing went into this.
I subscribed to the magazine just the other week, and my only gripe was that the website wasn't responsive. So glad to see this roll out.
Very nice design.
Only gripe when reading the cover story, scrolling down to read the menu bar appears and causes the content to jump up and cover the content that I was reading.
That one was bugging us too, but it's in the backlog now and should be fixed soon!
Very clean and has a nice format. Although the choice of contrast wants to hurt my eyes. The yellow bit at the left side of the site.
If the yellow hurt your eyes, you might have a better time today. There's a new illustration and no more yellow :)
Amazing work, I only dislike the yellow (a bit aggressive)
This is really nice but I just don't like that light weight of font used, it makes it look dated imo.
Pretty neat and clean! Love it! What I love the most is the indicator at the top that shows your reading progress. I don't trust the native scrollbar these days because of all the padding under articles these days (comments, ads, infinite scrolling..etc).
The black card on the left in every article reminds me of Cards Against Humanity! Beautiful typography as always. :)
