My spanking new portfolio

Postby Blink on Tue Apr 14, 2009 11:32 am

I've spent all last week re-designing and re-building my web portfolio and I'd like some honest comments on it.

Let me know what your thoughts are, good or bad.

Cheers

Hmmmm I tried to think fo some things I could critcise it on but then found cool things, like that change thing, and the way you've arranged pictures.
I suppose one criticism could be it's a bit unprofessional in your writing but that's one of the refreshing things about it.

Quite like the design. Changing the color/lowercase is ok, but usefull?..

Funny actually, that on your site, on the 3th page of the images I see a post I made. :P. Is this auto generated; or did you do this on purpose?

Your site/portfolio would definitely get a +1 rating in my list. :)

It looks a tad noisy. And by "a tad" I mean "the righthand side." Why is that RSS button on any pages other than the blog itself? it could stand to be a bit smaller and more with the color scheme on the blog page, too.
Do you really need both a color and lower/uppercase toggle? Combine them somehow, perhaps?
Why not ditch the description of twitter and have the bird/text as the link instead?

...this was about all I could find. Other than that, very nicely done!
i had fun once, and it was awful.

Well, there is not much contrast between with the text and the back ground. Some of the text is too light because of it, and makes it hard to read. You know the part that says "I design and build websites".

The color choices for the you gave for the titles, borders, and links is far too distracting.

What i did like, its clean and easy to navigate.

I was going to criticise on the pink colour and the lowercase letters, but then I found out that I could change that :b

Rather cool portfolio you've got yourself there! :D

I would suggest the blue and Uppercase as default as I think it looks more professional/friendly :S

I may revisit the uppercase swither and only leave headers as lowercase and do away with it completely

However I am a fan of the pink colour scheme but I'll consider darkening the text colour too

I like the pink, it's a bit differnet, and I think the change colour and case is a nice little bit of novelty that showcases a bit of webdesign talent too. I think it's okay as it is at the minute actually and believe me I would say something is shit if I could find something that is.

I would maybe change default to the upper case proper one though and to maybe blue colour and low it to be changed to the pink or the lowercase.

The section that reads "When using HTML (the language describes your content) in conjunction with CSS (the language which presents it)"

should of course read:

"When using HTML (the language WHICH describes your content) in conjunction with CSS (the language which presents it)"
