I tend to hate it when designers get all creative and try to do something totally outside the usual. And at the same time I love it when designers push the envelope and find something remarkably and functional. I can’t help it: The right side of my brain wants to stick to convention, while the left side wants to break free and explore. And every now and again, a site like this one (for a creative agency in London) changes your expectations of the web and sets it free in a way that’s not only successful, but highly functional. It’s the type of thing you could never get a client to do—but if you can pull it off for yourself it can be well worth it.
