About time! Portfolio Redesign / Refresh

Hi guys,

Been working intensely on this the last 4 days…

I still need to fill up the projects, but other than that, I think all the styling / layout is there.

The links in the footer aren’t working. There are probably a few minor inconsistencies elsewhere.

Please feel free to poke holes in it… Constructive criticism appreciated as always.

Hi Joe thanks for sharing!

It’s very clean and I envy your sense of colors… purple, green and cyan all together isn’t always a match but it’s brilliant on your site.

Again, it’s very clean, maybe to the point of being a bit impersonal… ITC Avant Garde is an extremely nice font, but maybe the headline font choice could bring more personality to your… personal site. And/or a big poster picture of yourself… something very unique and personal, warm, inviting, welcoming… It needs some “granularity”, personality, fun, to represent you as a human, I feel :slight_smile: The big black zone on home could carry a hero image (even if still very black) and a unique title font for your name, a very human one, with Serifs and imperfections.

I hope this helps!

Hey Vincent,

Thank you. Still not entirely sure on the blue myself…

I can see what you mean by impersonal. I was aiming to balance this out somewhat with bright colours, a picture of me on the profile page and some other funky bits like the button transitions, to allow the work to speak for itself.

Maybe my brain has become 2 dimensional after spending so much time using a computer…

I have considered creating some 2-tone imagery to put in the headings / hero sections, or some subtle animated effect/s. Or alternatively having a landing / intro that spices things up a bit.

I’ll have a fiddle with the fonts.

Thanks again :slight_smile:
