    The overall "personality" of the site feels almost too friendly to me. This is the journalism site that broke many of NSA Snowden revelations, the Panama Papers and more. The commanding feel of the previous look is gone.

    And more importantly, yes, that “Guardian Text Egyptian Web” font is much too difficult to read. They're very sparsely using a sans font that would help with readability/contrast if used more frequently.

    For fun.., to test if a moving image would be a good decision or too busy, or for quick on-screen feedback from coworkers.

    If you get it, you're part of the club. I think the fact that it's not blatantly spelled out for you is an appeal of the ad.

    Great design. Useful inspiration for the sort of small business websites I typically have to design. Nicely done subtle details.

    That “dated swag” was around on the last site... Pretty nitpicky critique to pull from literally, one small image on the site.

    The entire site feels cleaner with much smoother interactions. The hover on the logo and super-fast page transitions on the menu hovers are very cool interactions.

    When the old site launched it was totally innovative, this one doesn't have the same initial impact, and almost feels like a site refresh. Perhaps a certain 'edge' was lost as some of the big players at Huge left to start ?

    Some nice image compression, but still crisp even on retina
