Wilson Miner on a crafty use of RGBa

The homepage in particular uses RGBA color values to add transparency to the text so it picks up the background tone, whether it’s a solid color or an image. Even the “black” text on the homepage is slightly transparent, which gives it just a hint of the background color. It softens the contrast a bit, and it reminds me of the effect when I used to overprint colors in print design.
