Eight classic designs from the Swiss International Typographic Style of mid-Century graphic design, lovingly recreated in CSS. What saves this project from being merely an academic exercise is designer Jon Yablonski’s gentle reinvention of each work for the browser. He cannily marries the International Style’s preference for simple, geometric shapes with CSS’s strength in lightweight animation to bring each design to life in an unexpected way, while fully respecting the original work. It’s a nearly perfect union of two methods of exploiting technology for presentation that just happen to be separated by a half century.
