Beautiful work. The bold type and illustrations pair nicely with the style of architecture being highlighted in the images.
Thanks @Evan for posting this! I actually posted this link here a week ago when I launched the project and nobody cared :) joking You post it and there are all this upvotes. Yay!
Hi Anton. Yeah, I saw that it had been posted, previously here, but I'd missed it (I found it on SiteInspire). So I thought I'd repost because the layout and typography is such a breath of fresh air. Really minds me of great editorial print design in the best way possible. Great job!
Great visual design, but I found this really difficult to actually read. There is just too much going on! Scrolling was fun, but the content was secondary to everything else unfortunately..
White text on black backgrounds and black text on white backgrounds = "To much going on"? Yes there is scroll jacking, but it does not take away from the site. In fact, I think the designers has found a great way to give the primary content (photos) clear focus while keeping the secondary content (the copy) very readable and accessible (great contrast and sizing).
I'm coming from the standpoint of wanting to read the entire article. You need to scroll tirelessly to do this, so I don't feel it's "usable" overall. If my goal is to read the content, the design of this page makes it difficult to do so.
Never thought Roboto could look so fresh.
(It is Roboto right? WhatFont was being weird...)
I don't think so actually, it's whatever the hell tscy is. That's what's in the CSS at least.
