    Really digging this site, from the concept itself, to the URL, to the swiss typography, to the subtle background animations, to the background graphics/illustrations when you hover over an investment area.

    A pretty robust list here, details that are super easy to forget.

    I really love the simple and straightforward onboarding experience that shows you the various tools and ways to explore the app.

    Particularly impressed by the re-animations of the classic covers and the various animations throughout that point out details in, e.g., their content strategy and their CMS. Well done all around, Upstatement.

    Dig the use of the Media Pop Up Effect on the home page and each of the project category pages.

  • Posted to Isaac Newton's Principia Mathematica Reissue, Oct 18, 2016

    We have spent several months working on a desire. The desire to have a new edition of Isaac Newton’s Principia in our hands that is on a par with the importance of the text and of modern editorial design. To put it back on our shelves so that we can leaf through it from time to time and feel the pages beneath our fingers.

    An opportunity has now arisen. Taking advantage of the fact that the original publication is to celebrate its 330th anniversary in 2017, we wish to republish it with an editorial design that pays attention to every last detail.

    Ling is a woman! That interview is absolutely incredible:

    My sitemap is great content. The design is a Chinese prison camp and it shows my visitors, live, as they browse my website. It took a lot of coding. I deliberately left it unpolished, but no one else has such a page. If you visit during busy periods, it goes crazy and eventually crashes your browser. But, it has some great cookies (click the jamjar cars icon in the bottom right of my prison compound to make the visitors dance, and also click the cat at the top of the camp, it sings).

    One other stand-out bit of content is my karaoke girl. On my home page, this auto-plays. Everyone says “don’t autoplay music” but honestly, this is SO popular. Saying “don’t” is a good example of idiot web designers making rules that are utter nonsense. I have 2 Chinese girls, Christine Wang and Wei Ya Jun, and they have about 25 songs between them. Refresh the page to get a random selection. This works immensely.
