A fantastic website. The typography is tight, grid is elegant and flexible. The site embraces white space which helped elevate it and make it feel more accessible and readable at a glance. Wasn’t overwhelming. Very professional looking.

Typography and hierarchy are well considered. There are parts where the WordPress theme holds them back like stories without photos.
