I'm totally in love with this retro, 80s animation from PUNGA/VisualConsorcio.

Came across this video last night on YouTube -- thought the visuals, music, and narrative all together summed up to something that felt and looked just beautiful.

Came across this oldie but goodie from Jeremy Messersmith again today -- Jeremy first posted this to YouTube in 2009.

Some good thoughts from Trent Walton on responsive design:

"Another thing I’ve noticed is that media queries are being used to significantly redesign pages. I’ve seen background colors change and top-level elements move from left to right. If critical thought is applied here those choices may be spot on. But what happens if a user visits at full-width one afternoon and revisits your site in the evening on a tablet, and everything looks completely different? It’s annoying—like someone rearranging the groceries in your pantry every time you closed the door. The power of media queries can be intoxicating, but just because you can doesn’t mean you should."

I love to walk by the fountains in front of the MSU Library each morning.
