Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 08.45.31

Very interesting website. For once, for the report (N. Stern is the key person behind). But even more for the website design. It’s like an interactive ebook brought online, with video which can play (fullscreen) in the background, links in all directions, pages which just need to be scrolled down for overview, and to the left for deeper look into it…

Pretty cool… Although, still, I don’t read the stuff, as I don’t like reading text on screen…
