For a long time, Happy Cog has been known has one of the premiere agencies in the web standards world. Owned and run by grand master Jeffrey Zeldman from NYC, we recently expanded to take the Philly region by storm. Today, our site gets a long overdue refresh.
Skillfully crafted by design hammer Jason Santa Maria, I’ve gotta say: this new one is gorgeous. Of note is the fact the whole site uses web typography as a driving design element. There's only one text-replaced image: the logo. Impressive! I could go on and on about how well designed it is, but I’ll leave that to the man himself. Have a look at JSM’s write-up.
Overseen by the man himself, Zeldman coordinated the content direction and overall voice of the site. An extremely pleasant soul to work with, feel free to check out Z's side of the story.
Marked up and styled by yours truly, this was certainly one of the best projects I’ve worked on. The code is lean. The styles are abstract and extensible. A playful combination of positioning, floating and Well Educated CSS really make it come alive. It works in IE6. It works in IE7. It works in IE5. Mac.
To top it all off, the site now has an RSS feed, you can you stay up to date on all the HC mischief you can handle.
I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this great project, and great team.
Ladies and gentlemen, the new Happy Cog site!
(In case you're in or around Philly, you’re more than welcome to crash our official Open House! Hit me up and I’ll let you know where and when.)
Update: Matthew Pennell has pointed out a better way to structure some of the markup. Thanks Matthew!
