Rob Palmer's weekly email to Fueled teams in New York and Chicago: a roundup of design inspiration
Every week at Fueled, our London-based lead designer Rob Palmer shares a handful of inspirational websites with our teams in New York and Chicago. This weekly email acts like a virtual water cooler, encouraging us to congregate across time zones and discuss what brands and blogs are doing to push new trends in web design.

When you first land on this ecommerce site, you might say to yourself, "Self, where am I?" It'll take you about five beats and a couple of scrolls to realize that you're looking at socks. Yes, Alfredo Gonzales is a New York City based sock company. Even with the initial confusion, we appreciate the site's fun and animated feel.
We have a major design crush on Bethany Heck. Her personal blog and portfolio site showcases fun and creative typography and stellar graphics in a format that leaves us wanting to discover more. Come visit our design team in London, Bethany - let's nerd out!
Nice and Sweet
Sweet and Serious is a creative agency that makes "nice things, but only to solve serious stuff." Stuff like a film that puts a face to cocoa farmers and an animation about the biggest refugee crisis in history. The site reflects the company's commitment to both the sweet and the serious. It's lightweight and whimsical with great interactive SVG and CSS3 animations. There's lots to see and we love all the colors.
