I’ve read about The Cicada Principle and Why It Matters to Web Designers since april and was very intrigued that such a simple concept of using prime numbers to avoid patterns happens in the animal kingdom and that the principle can also be applied to Web Design.

Having seen Alex Walker’s Mighty Legion of Lego example, you can imagine the file size optimisation application possibilities.

I’ve finally found sometime to play with this and have applied it to my blog today.

You can get the code from my github repository for the Cicada Squares.

ps: this is my virgin github repository. :)
