Site of the Day:

You can put this one on the short list of web designs I wish I’d created myself. This site makes very controlled use of decoration, so it adds a lot of oomph to the page. It just makes me want to hug the designers behind it. A wood texture is abstracted down to colored lines that use a color palette connecting it to more literal versions. The combination of the gorgeous finishing details and beautiful type make this a real gem of a site.
