Looking for a specific online article - details unclear

I'm trying to find an article I read online a few months ago. The problem is, I can't remember what the subject of the article was, or where I read it. I do remember that:
  • The article was well written,
  • It used parallax scrolling very well,
  • It had wonderful pixel illustrations done in a pink/violet/red colour palette.

The article may have been about the future of work or AI or housing in cities. Or maybe not.

I thought I bookmarked it, but the bookmark isn't there. I do pixel art for fun, but I'm sort of stuck and found the illustrations inspiring. I also admired the layout.

No. But that is INCREDIBLE.

This is a little labor intensive, but perhaps you could scroll through Longform's last few months and see if anything jumps out at you.

This sounds familiar. Look at Bloomberg or The Outline—this style is a thing they've both been doing well.

Can you check your browsing history and find it? I've successfully found articles I've read previously this way -- the annoying part is remembering if I browsed on my laptop or desktop, and if I used Chrome or Firefox (since I use both). But I can often figure it out.

It’s not exactly parallax scrolling, but your description sounds similar to What Is Code? by MetaFilter’s own Paul Ford.
