nice. using some blogware to host your work?
crit on the site or the work?
Its weird that "Instant Action" under visual design and interactive design open up in that thumbnail view, but the other projects / sections open w a larger image that you use next / prev controls.
Anyway to standardize how those projects open? Its a little jarring to see the layout change so significantly while browsing sections.
Thanks, that is great feedback. I was wondering if that would be an issue. I will standardize those. Any preference: Thumbnail or Large image with controls?
How are we supposed to critique an Indexhibit template?
you know what's so cool, is that your portfolio is unlike other portfolios out there with standard photos of their work. you got a blog on it too. so that i can get into your head and post comments on things that i like. thumbs up
site - poor
optimize your work images, taking longer than I have patience to go through your work.
i would highlight something from the start instead of leaving it blank.
The live Neutral Milk Hotel video is incredible - nice find.
It would be nice to see a closer view of your interactive designs.
On first impression I like! But seeking perfection I'd make a couple of tweaks (might be of personal taste). I'd lighten the anchor text colour on roll-over (main navigation), for me the contrast isn't there. I'm not a model guy. Pages seem to work much nicer when examples are in-page. And I'd second @vitamins (closer views if those interactive designs). Finally I think the home page is a little too empty. I see why but I'd experiment with some typography). Nice stuff though!
- Thanks for taking the time. I really appreciate the feedbackfrontSide_bus
- funny you mentioned typography I was thinking the same thing.frontSide_bus
- Yeh, this site (I'm not proud of any more) has some large text on roll-over on the main image. I was imagining something similar: http://aaron.storry.…aaronstorry
- that site looks great. I see what you are talking about with the type. Good idea.frontSide_bus
me no like frame
boring work. that baseball thing logo is terrible.
the loading animation is the first thing I noticed wrong with it. looks like its a gif designed to go on white.
basically it's something that would ever pass in a professional enironment, so I'd get rid of it or change it.
I gotta say (though in a slightly more adult way than the others) you need more interesting work in there. Do some self-initiated projects with a bit of wow factor... but still looking like they're for a client as opposed to for mates like the 2 dudes above
>>> Please take this as constructive criticism, overall the site works nice but:
Your intro para left me with more questions then answers:
'user advocate' - advocate of what exactly?
IMO never user the word 'geek.' What have bikes got to do with your site or work? What is a media center? ...
I like the type your using for the intro para and logo but the type on the side bar needs to be much less fussy. Try Helvetica, DIN, DIN condensed, Akkurat. Keep the type simple or the same serif but much smaller. (The size is too similar to the logo).
I would say the Visual Design section is your strongest. And so would suggest making the thumbnails on the page a lot bigger or having them run in the same way as the Branding section (1 at a time)
borders on the thumbnail images should go away
