Congrats on launching and keep us posted.
You need to sort out the SSL warning though - I'm using a chromium based browser. I can imagine it's a big turn off getting that warning the first time you visit the site.
Perfect timing. I was going to get into React for building UI components.
So yes count me in.
Reading that title made me think that it's something you are going to launch, i.e. build is almost done.
I wasn't even aware this existed.
Thanks for the transparency.
Why do you think this will be good for their customers, how?
The update to the colours and kit is good - as it serves a purpose - better visibility for the riders.
However, why was there a need to change the logo mark? Yes, the old logo mark didn't necessarily look trendy or flat, but it had charm and was it really that broken that it need replacing? I can also imagine it had very strong brand recognition and customers liked it.
This exercise just smells like changing stuff for change sake, or someone wanted to leave their mark - call it 'design wankery' - especially things like illustrating the angles in the logo (what does it mean?) and using phrases like the logo has to work much harder etc.
The new logo also doesn't look like a kangaroo anymore - more like a dog.
Can't comment on the content yet, still reading and digesting.
But the presentation is very slick (reminds me of Teehan+Lax) and a pleasure to read.
How long did it take to put together (content and build?).
Well done and thanks for posting.
You should have some hint text or something showing how to pronounce your surname (similar to what Luke Wroblewski did)
I don't get it, are we really so weak that we can't shlepp around laptops that are between 1kg - 3kg?
I take a laptop over any iPad, I can't be productive on an iPad, need a proper keyboard and OS.
Nice work Eileen, looks beautiful and nicely responsive.
Must have taken quite a while to put this together.
