    I'm a big fan of https://statamic.com. Super-duper customizable CMS and excellent control over the styling of pages and content.

    I'd also encourage you think about more about the typography, not the fonts but the way your type is laid out. I couldn't find any line-height declaration, anywhere on anything. That's important. For example, if you open the inspector in Chrome and on the body tag add "line-height: 1.5" you'll see how much nicer your portfolio detail page text looks and reads. :)

    I know the flack I'm going to get because I'm using Safari, but the homepage and other parts of the site are pretty jacked up.

    Looks good despite, and a welcome changed from the eyesores that are Jira and Confluence. Honestly though, if it's just a coat of paint, that won't fix UX issues both of products have.

    You could use the site nav on that page. I had no way to get to your homepage. ;)

    I think the OP is talking about when you hit a key and the video kinda tweaks out and goes weird(er). There's two videos playing, one over the other and the top video is hidden. When you hit a key, the top video is shown. Since the top video is super stylized, it feels like it's a filter on the "bottom" video. It's not. If you hit a key quickly, you'll see the same scene in the top video play for a little bit.

    Well, that's my guess. I didn't build so I can't say for sure.

    There was a Honda ad that did this a year or so ago, with a day and night version you could switch between. They've taken it down though.

    Good stuff either way!
