You gotta love a twitter bird on steroids… I really like the blue background of this website, the texture/pattern gives it what it would otherwise be lacking. I also like the transition from the blue to the white background with the pattern. The illustrations are clever and gives it a nice sense of hand-crafted-ness (I know that’s not a word.) The footer starts to lose me, in that I don’t think it’s executed as well as the rest of the page. Overall though, this is a pretty good conference website.

  • I really really like this site – but it must be wider than 960px. It gives me a horizontal scroll bar on my old secondary laptop.

  • @Ryan – not sure man, doesn’t seem to do that for me. Could be a specific browser thing? Would be cool to know what browser you’re running.
