The Lively Morgue
Really great design on this new New York Times photo archive blog. The backs of these photos are as beautiful as the fronts, and I love how the UI foregrounds that by allowing you to replicate the experience of flipping them over. It’s one of the best uses of CSS3 animation I’ve seen to date, going beyond novelty and creating a metaphor that delights the user and furthers the emotional connection with these beautiful objects. So yes, very well done.
