New verge posts design..?

I'm pretty sure I'm not going crazy and The Verge has been doing some really nice stuff with it's front end on the article pages.

It adds a really nice feel to each article as they are all now that bit more unique, yet following the same theme throughout, like any good print magazine I guess.

Just wanted to give kudos to the design / front end developer team. Would love a little insight as to how it's handled through the back end, importing style sheets, font-face, jQuery etc...
