A wonderful (and wonderfully long) post by Dan Hill on how he and his team thought about and executed the Monocle web site.

None of what follows is rocket science, and it’s not the place to look for thoughts on 2.0/3.0, social software, or urban informatics. That would be in the accounts of different projects. But if you’re interested in the honest craft of website work, almost deliberately old-fashioned ‘classical’ web design — and how to ally this with innovation in magazine publishing — the following should provide a decent account of several of the key decisions in this particular project.

Dan’s thoughtful approach should be required reading for anyone building media web sites.
