    In 19 words it says work three times.

    three very distinct purposes: title, body copy, and navigation.

    Also, the line breaking after a word with a hyphen feels weird.

    a style choice in copywriting.

    When I resize the screen I almost got blinded from the bright pink background.

    a cool easter egg.

    When I clicked on Airbnb in 'work' i got 3 lines about what they did there but no work. Wtf? This website makes no sense.

    ok, kind of weird that the scrollbar is delayed a split second. i'll give you that.

      1 - Yes, and the visual pattern of having the word 'work' three times in close proximity in such a minimal design seems odd.

      2 - Cool? It is confusing to read

      3 - Yeah, one that hurts to look at because it flashed bright pink onto my screen when my eyes are used to looking at white. It could've been done with a different, more subdued colour and you'd still get the same easter egg effect.

        If you can't flash some bright pink onto a screen on your own website, where can you?

        Honestly - it's not that important. It breaks lots of UX rules - being a sensible, expected, well written account of my work wasn't really the point.

          Yeah I know man. People take this too seriously. Like I said, it hurt my eyes a bit when I did it. This isn't some FMCG site so it doesnt matter. You can still see you have shithot work from the site (once you scroll down haha) and thats the point.

          I think it's a pretty cool detail. A simple 0.2-0.5s fade-in on the pink would probably help smooth out the jarring flash when you introduce it.

          I don't see the point in indicating the screen resize... Is it just a random idea for the fun?
