Illustrations and animation look dope. What happened to the wavy arm on this dude?
Grew up in china. Definitely saw a lot of these patterns. For a long time, I hated these color palettes because of their association with the poor quality products my grand parents used to own.
I've since come around. With distance, I've now come to associate these with a nice part of my childhood. I wish more brands would take advantage of this nostalgia.
I'm actually a little sad that none of the original branding was carried through. It was one of the few warm-colored tech websites out there, and fit perfectly with the tone of the site.
For me it was a perfect place for people who like gadgets more for the benefits they bring to their life, and less for the tech itself.
This new design is too on trend and masculine. Almost like engadget.
Also, the bold Serif is kinda hard to scan.
Overall, very well executed, but misses the point a little
Echoing some of the comments her:
Looking great. Btw, not sure if this is intentional, but there's no padding under the links in the footer.
Great point. Gonna remove that, and soften and expand the shadow instead.
Noted. Once we implement some proper lazy loading, we'll at least double the amount of ss per page. Mostly a performance thing right now as we load images dumbly :p
Thank you! Will fix that soon :)
Heh. That's an interesting thought. We've had a few ideas for monetization (no ads!) but that's an interesting one.
Ah yeah. This was caught by a few other people too. Gonna get some time this weekend to fix this hopefully :)
