re: Portfolio Advice Thread VIEW POST


Hi Ali,

I'm game developer and I'm bit confused on how to represent myself on my portfolio.

All texts went through many friends and revisions, so actually they're not mine. Mine sucked to be honest (after comparing it to the revisions of others).

May i ask you if you would be that kind and have a look?

Thanks in advance.


Hey! Cool site, I think the descriptions are great. I would make sure they're easy to read, though I would make the font white on the dark background, and maybe make it a little larger. I am not sure if the top image is saying much about you -- I don't think you need it! Maybe just have your name and something about you. Or make your about a little bigger! I would also either make the contrast between sections a little stronger (so some sections darker some lighter) or just make them all a dark grey. The black, dark grey, and dark red are so similar that it doesn't add much. I think it gets the information across really well though! Just make it easier to read!


Ah, thank you for your feedback!

Interesting, the contrast would be the last thing I would consider as something that should be changed.

Unfortunately, the site is made through system equivalent to, so I can't edit the colours. While ago I was "porting" the theme to my custom site. But that is still work in progress.

And you're right about the Jumbotron image, it's big and useless. I think I should spin the design a bit.

I honestly thank you, mainly for the opportunity you gave to devs to have feedback. I hope this will be in the top 7 posts of the week. Have a nice evening.


That's tough! I would maybe use a HTML/CSS template and upload to GitHub pages?

Hmm, sounds easy enough, but my experience were bit different :(

Thanks for the tip
