    I love the sheer cleverness of this. So inventive.

    SPOILER: Comment out the "bottom: 0" rule in the "body: before" selector to see how he did it.

    Looks very cluttered without the individual containment - needs something to encapsulate each thing IMO.

    It'll be very demanding, and you won't have the luxury of a lot of ideation time, so often times you have to go with your gut, and polish that idea as much as time allows, but don't obsess over attaining perfection.

    People like to see designs in progress and give input, even if it's just "Looks great!" so share as often as you can with your coworkers, but take everyone's feedback with a grain of salt, as always. Push yourself to think better, faster. You'll find yourself gaining speed of execution and (hopefully) confidence as you go.

    Regarding feedback, learn to hear the message behind the words, as opposed to the words themselves.

    Don't let it (the fast, often thankless, pace) burn you out. Take time away to pursue hobbies. In the beginning stages of a startup, that time is very hard to come by in my experience, let alone time for sleep, so take it where you can get it.

    Even if you end up hating the startup lifestyle, at least you'll know, and you can move on to something that suits you better.

    Pixellation issue on OSX as well -- that was the main offputting thing to me.

    We'd need to see the animation to judge it :)

    This seems really cool - anything that lowers the barrier to entry to making cool animations and interactions is awesome in my book.

    It's a lame pun on the "Fifty Shades of Grey" book series. :)

    I tend to follow the "less is more" paradigm when it comes to neutrals in my designs. 3-4 is ideally my max. However, I have seen and coded up designs where double that number are being used. I agree that it can help add subtle variations to an interface, but I think a plethora of shades can also make things look messy and unrefined. Fifty shades of gray is some people's thing, but not mine.
