    This is exceptionally well executed—especially on mobile. Many of the fancier story layouts aren't great on phones. I love how the blocks of text are transparent enough to see what is happening on the map below.

    It says the Affinity tools are $3/mo. Is that supposed to be the amortized cost? If not, I believe they are one time purchases for $50?

    I don't understand, but am entertained.

    Edit: Some interesting illustration work from the studio that produced this. https://dribbble.com/adn-digital

    Exactly what I thought.

    The details are not the details; they make the design.

    I think this may be part of the issue.

    Constraint is a good thing, having too many font weights can be a problem in itself. Add in different widths and you've multiplied the problem.

    Also, I strongly dislike the trend of these wide fonts. Even the short headlines are difficult to read. It reminds me of the Audi rebrand. http://www.audi.com/ci/en/renewed-brand.html

    Fantastic site. I agree with everything you said except:

    Bold copy: "We don't even like the internet" and especially "Hating each other since 2010". You really went for it.

    My first impression is they were doing industrial product design—if they were designing blenders and chairs it would have been a fantastic line.

    Also, I like the thicker fonts. Too many sites using the thin or hairline weights, which make things difficult to read.

    I get what they are trying to do here, but everything about this site is super-confusing.

    • The adobe animation at the beginning takes to long to get to the coming soon page. I had no idea what was happening.
    • I wanted to click into their portfolio, but could only drag it—everything in that row looks clickable, but only the tiny link at the bottom is.
    • More cursor weirdness. It's set to text, but I cannot select or type anything. Instead it changes the background color.
    • I can see customers now, but a wand appears over those divs. Apparently the wand opens the customer's site. That's not what I was expecting.
    • The typing text animation on the bottom is in a container pushes the contact info below it up and down.
    • When trying to select an address or email to copy and paste I end up just drawing a line through it.

    I'll go back to yelling at kids to get off my lawn now.

    Great little guide—huge fan of the em dash.

    And god damn do I love the Tiempos font family.
