Honestly, I somewhat torn about 42angels.com. I think that each ‘page’ (its a single page scroller) has a really nice visual appeal when static but some of that appeal is lost when scrolling. The limited palette and minimalist modular structure make for a compelling and varied design. However, the large spaces between ‘pages’ and the repeated navigation are a little disjoint. I’m on a 1080p monitor and there are times when I’m looking at basically a black screen with a nice faceted pattern on it. People scroll, its just what they do. On a monitor of lower resolution there would¬†definitely¬†be some time scrolling through nothingness. Still, the visual design is undeniably good and the hover states on the home page are a nice touch. I really like the way they focus by fading out everything else. Very cool.
