I actually thought that the design/layout/navigation were perfectly appropriate
for the audience. If this was a web site that documented an API, I think it
would totally tick off the readers. But the readers of this site are artists,
and so they're going to want to see a web site that reflects that.

I found the navigation a bit helter-skelter, but it was easy to find, which is
nice. I also was impressed that they were able to do all that they did in such
a small window. This enables everyone to use the site...even people using

Remember one of the TW mantras: "Know your audience."
