It reminds me of the philosophy and spirit of Satan's Coffee in Barcelona, Spain.
Apparently they're open. Camille says they get the vote for best coffee shop in Denver!

We tend to fetishize our current work and pretend it’s so much better now. But the design you’re excited about right now is headed for the same landfill before long.

First: I'm immensely proud of Ashley for her work on this. It's taken her 11 years to get to this launch.
Second: in terms of design, this whole page just feels refreshing. Lots of whitespace. Delightful illustrations. Calming palette. You can tell she spent a lot of time on the words too - which I love.
When I was 13, I remember being blown away by the game [Doom](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doom_(1993_video_game). It had a 3D engine, graphics and sound like I'd never seen before. At about 2.25 MB it took 40 minutes on my dial up modem.
Nowadays, the average web page is bigger than that. That's insane.
I think we're going to see a return to lightweight websites. Simple. Focused on the words.
This will be good for designers: less cruft, less ads mucking up layouts, less scripts to load, less heavy fonts.
