I think you have done a great job here, especially the intro hero section on your homepage.

A few suggestions for the next round...

  • At the bottom maybe move the "Return to top" to the bottom of the footer and have it as a text link instead. The reason being, that banner is all about learning more about you and contacting you. The current button has the most visual impact but has nothing to do with either. Perhaps make the current filled in button go to your About page and the secondary button go to your contact page.

  • I think you do a great job exploring colors, it might be worth however pairing it down to one/two primary colors and then tints/shades of those for a more consistent look. Adobe Color and are great resources to help with this. :)

  • Also regarding the colors, I would suggest auditing your site to make sure they match Web Accessibility best practices for contrast. For example, the main CTA button at the top for your projects fails all 3 contrast categories for contrast. Better accessibility practice will help your users, but also SEO as Google factors this in when crawling sites.

Best of luck with your coding journey!

Thanks so much for all of the advice! I really like your suggestion about moving the "return to top" to the footer. Also, I really didn't look into colors and used the premade ones, so I am interested in learning more about that and customizing it. I really appreciate you sharing some resources and info!!
