That's a great find Down10! Totally unique (to me at least) and damn clever...

[This is Good]

This post is what Metafilter is supposed to be all about. Great design paired with interesting content. Thanks for finding it and sharing it with us.

I like how all the logos are dead image links. R.I.P. in more ways than one.

I first saw this 10 days ago on my brother's blog.

Here's what I said then:

This logo site would be 500% better if they just showed the logos without trying to be cute and stick them on gravestones. Yes, I get it, they're dead logos...
Also, the entrance to the content is unclear, user-interface-wise. I kept clicking on the center image, waiting for it to take me to the images. Finally I grasped that I needed to click on the menu, above.

So overall I'd say; cute idea, bad implementation.

JP, I'm surpised at your reaction (considering you're an established, and rather good, graphic designer).

The whole point of the site and book is the presentation.
