Really unique layout, the squares that have the roll over effect all over the background of the site are a neat touch, even if they are fairly useless. Sometimes when you put something into the design like that it just gives the design a nice feel when it’s used, that’s it and it’s enjoyable in this instance. I also really like that they elected to make each page a unique loading page and not do a slideshow type website. That may have really been too much for this design but in this case it’s restraint that makes it work out well and that can be hard to do. Sweet use of @font-face and the interactions are all perfectly done.


Bonus is the octopus ascii art. Awesome!
