imposter syndrome intensifies
100% this lol
Currently updating my portfolio to a blank screen that says: "There are better options out there http://www.narrowdesign.com/"
This feels great on a touch screen
Brilliant idea and hilarious disclaimer...

original and so well implemented
Thanks for the ❤️ and the :( So much I would've done different if the client wasn't me. Like, you know, test it on devices other than my phone and my laptop. Didn't expect the response it got.
I just kept scrolling. This is very good internet.
It shouldn't work, but...somehow... it does.
As an aside, I loved the Weyland Corp site when it came out, that was beautifully done.
This designer has a new appreciator.
Hey wait a minute, this guy was working for the grid! He's trying to take our jobs! Who wants a pitchfork!
Kidding, fantastic job. Super unique, and super lovely. The small interactions are the best, the eye following you, the spirograph in the back, the text colour flutter thing. 10/10
It's astounding to me the wealth of talent that team had -- Nick Jones, Jon Gold, and Brent Jackson all working on one product
Design talent is irrelevant when the tech you're building isn't there to back it up (and vice-versa).
I think the grid was an excellent case study in the fundamental ignorance of the general public and the power of the term "AI" in marketing Silicon Valley products (thanks Steven Spielberg!). I'm still blown away how easily they gathered massive press and $4+ million in preorders with just a slick mission statement video and zero demonstration of any tech.
Nice website, but on my machine everything is slow and laggy. I wonder how this works on some older laptops or pcs
Running this on a 4K screen on an i7 4770K + GTX 1080 is laggy as hell! It's a really cool site, but not if it runs badly. :/
This is extremely cool.
I've never felt so happy about a site making me dizzy.
This site gives me motion sickness.
But it's a good motion sickness, almost like going into a roller coaster.
Great job @Nick.. You deserve my upvote.. :) Original and brilliantly done. Keep it up.
He's also the dev that helped build freelance.tv
Can't believe nobody has whined about scrolljacking yet, you're letting me down HN
A necessary function to hit each "page" properly, rather than the normal storytelling bent that is infuriating.
That is shit hot.
Oh wow. This is pretty much perfect.
Golden ratio senses are tingling. Inspiring with a touch of envy. Fantastic.
This is insanely well done. Hats off.
Hands Down, one of the best website i have seen in the last couple of years. Impressive.
while it worked well on my nexus 5 browser After a certain point the image was getting increasingly degraded to the point that it just became a blog.
On desktop it seems to work fine (seems like it loads a new higher res image everytime I go deeper in the spiral)
So impressive, an original!
Threshold on the spinning needs to be adjusted a little bit for desktop mouses. A full rotation of my mouse wheel (Logitech MX500) isn't enough to enter the next section. I have to spin my wheel twice for each new section. Other than that, this is glorious. Such a unique and fun site! Kudos!
The disclaimer is both practical and great.
Simply amazing! Great concept and great execution!!
Would like to read more about his thought process, some more in depth case studies. I really liked the flow of a case study done by Jason Yuan, the student who got rejected by Apple.
