We love this tiny airplane - a really nice idea! But it would've been a lot nicer if you'd tried CSS3-shaping the skyline.

The view-based routing is amazingly smooth and fast, great job here. And again, the usage of subtle animations makes the page fun to click around, supported by those fancy plugins for scrolling animations and such.

Unfortunately you did not stick with semantics that much, especially in your blog, and the class-names are a little of sometimes.

Nothing about the js, since it's compressed - but the speed makes up for it.

Really good job on this project, i really like the fancy approach and its implementation.

The site has interesting (and cute) use of animations. I could get motion sickness by looking at the changing numbers in the source in the inspector ;-)

The grids design is nicely done with css including media-queries to handle different screen sizes. (Although I thought it is a bit of overkill to animate the grids as the window size changes).

The mobile version of the site is cleanly designed and easy to navigate, but again, I thought overused animation can be tricky, especially on mobile. It gets sluggish as I scroll sometimes, although it is still lighter weight compared to the desktop.

Also, I noticed the way the site detects the user-agents for mobile does not detect IE Mobile correctly, and gives the desktop experience. This rich experience is definitely not suitable on mobile.

Moreover, markups should be done with more semantic html5, instead of all the nested divs.

This is one of the perfect example on how to use the code, good job
