    Incredible content! But a bit over-the-top with the effects.

    Sites like this always remind me of Frank Chimero's quote, “This is how I feel about so many of the fancy websites I see. ‘It is fascinating that you can do that, but it’s really not what a website is supposed to do.” via

    However, I enjoyed the simplified mobile experience greatly :)

    New type feels much fresher. Its branding applications are lookin pretty good.

    “…comprised of two basic geometric shapes—a speech bubble and lozenge—that can be extracted and used as graphic elements. The speech bubble evokes communication and connectivity, and will form the basis of a system of customized icons, illustrations and motifs with rounded corners that echo the shapes of the logo.”

  • Posted to Twitter to remove 'like' tool in a bid to improve the quality of debate, in reply to Ken Em , Nov 01, 2018

    I agree that cyberbullying users should be banned if possible. But as far as specific groups with bad ideas, should discourse of polarizing/disagreeable/wrong ideas take place in public forums or fester in dark corners? Perhaps there are arguments for both, but I believe an open dialogue is healthiest for society.

    Freedom of speech is a human right and with social media becoming a more prominent way of how we communicate as a species, censorship is a dangerous pathway to go down.

    I wonder how much of this idea was influenced by Kanye.
