    Love the look here. The short and sweet animations are great, love the texture, the asymmetrical design elements, the photos, and the typography. Has a little Super Team Deluxe vibe to it.

    The menu seems a little unnecessary given how short the page is. After scrolling to the bottom I clicked "About" thinking that would go to another page. If you're going to have the menu there, maybe make the triangle logo clickable so you can scroll back to the top.

    But yeah, overall this looks great!

    There were a lot more products in that graveyard than I expected

    Thanks John, that was quite informative. I've used Terminal here and there for years, but learned a lot reading your guide!

    Hmm, they look fine to me. Love the little bobbing animation.

    Have to disagree here... well, let me agree first: Yes, I don't like menus that mix same-page anchor links with links to other pages. However, having a fixed position nav that hides when you scroll down and reveals itself again when you scroll up is a very common and useful presentation of the menu. Based on your comment I was expecting a much worse experience than I found.

    Same. Pop-up right in the middle of the screen when the page first loads. At first I was like "Wait, I think this is part of the on-boarding process..." Yeah, it's not.

    Love the design of those work pages. The layout, typography, and colors are quite nice.

    Can't really compare to LastPass, but I've been happy with how 1Password handles various email then password logins.

    Actually, I have no idea who Louie or Linus are. I just thought these were both better than Slack's new logo. I mean, at least these keep the hash sign and the rotation. The new logo is much more of a departure from their old one.

    Thanks for this. He links to a twitter post by Louie who actually made a decent version:

    Then Linus presented a great version too!
