Super fun reboot from Andy Clarke’s stuffandnonsense.co.uk website. Outside of the technical stuff, which yes you should go view source and pour over it. The header is so fun, the illustrations of the dude on the bike with the animated background makes it so enjoyable, then you’re given a nice little surprise when you resize the browser to get different dudes riding different vehicles. Nice touch man.

Andy has a pretty good post about the redesign too:

All CSS background images include retina versions. Making screenshots in HiDPI mode on an iMac involved stitching several high-resolution images together in Fireworks, because there just aren’t enough pixels on a current 27″ iMac.

Interesting indeed…
