    I had the same first reaction, and interestingly also when I first found Codepen. But I've since come to really admire Chris' style quite a bit. He is kind of a maverick and actually really shreds, but sometimes it takes a higher-altitude context to appreciate.

    For example, I really like the almost-harsh color scheme, because it's totally unique, it has personality, and like, fuck it — it's CSS-Tricks and it rules. Furthermore, regarding the oversized/bubbly stuff: imagine you are drunk, or blind, or experiencing a heat-stroke... I promise this is going to guide you to the most relevant content infinitely faster than the sweetest burger glyph on dribbble, 100% of the time.

    I don't know. I guess my point is that I think it's beautiful despite the fact that it may not be "beautiful".
