Until now the "brutalist web design" label has been able to indicate basically anything: minimalist, nostalgic, defaultist websites, etc. In my opinion, this is the closest we have to a coherent and meaningful understanding of brutalism when it comes to the web:

@entreprecariat IMO dithered images fall more in the cathegory of nostalgic/retrocomputing than true-to-the-material.

On a side note, even with their retro look, their site is still bigger than mine [0]. Even if we don't count images.



If they aim to minimize power costs on the clientside as well, they should get rid of JS, not load 80kB of jquery...
