A beautifully illustrated site using CSS3 keyframes and transitions to provide subtle animation.

This is a pretty interesting site design. Powered by illustrations, most of the interactive elements are made up of pieces of the illustration. The animated duck on the swing gives the page a good focus to move on to the navigation. It’s definitely unconventional, but I think it works for the purpose of keeping things interesting. I also like how there are sections of the illustration that link to deeper pages on the site, like the newspaper going to news. Clever.
