About the author

I’m a designer and practitioner of fine typography in Auckland, New Zealand. I co-founded a design and development studio, Cactuslab, in 2001, and a social network for film fans, Letterboxd, in 2011. I design themes for Tumblr, speak occasionally about web techniques and typography, and think up reasons to visit New York City.

Freediver Guillaume Nery simulates a basejump underwater at Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas. Fellow diver Julie Gautier filmed the footage, also on a single breath.

I missed posting this at the time: New Zealander William Trubridge won this year’s Suunto Dive-Off at the same location in late April. He dived to a world-record depth of 95 metres in the purest of the freediving disciplines, constant-weight with no fins. Full coverage is at Vertical Blue. (via Lee Majors)
