    That logo fucking sucks.

    It appears they are using custom type, which is pretty advanced branding. Shame they didn't put the same effort and attention into the logo. It's still, static, obvious, overly geometric, doesn't translate to single color (as noted by the site's home logo), and uses colors with no complexity.

    It's interesting to me that her intro video features so much of the variety that makes up the fabric of America, yet her graphical presentation is so un-nuanced.

    Blah to the blah.

    Design is nice. Type choices are nice. Functionally, though, it's a trainwreck.

    Endless scrolling and for what? Not scannable in the least. If the goal is "create a usable restaurant website", it doesn't accomplish that goal at all.

    I just hate this.

    Trying to do too many things and not succeeding at any of them. Is it a photo gallery? an infomap? a story? Lots of different pieces moving around that don't really fit together for me. Very clumsy execution, IMO.

    This article highlights the problem I've always had with apps vs. web: immersive experiences work for things like games, but are a real hinderance for content which serves a similar purpose. Why should I have to check 4 or 5 different platforms when my objective is the same: to check up on new content from sources I want to hear from?

    The framing of apps as publishing platforms is huge.

    Super excellent work. Kudos.

    Took me a very long time to discover that there were pages other than the initial one.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Which unit do you use? rem, em or px?, in reply to Cihad Turhan , Aug 20, 2014

    there's no reason to use a unit with line-height. it's a ratio based on the font size.
