Really like this site. The notion of a night/day mode on a website is really fun.
Pros:

  • Animation is seamless and slick. Doesn't detract from the website's accessibility at all.
  • Love that the hamburger navigation menu takes up the whole screen. Lovely display of minimalist web design.
  • The layout of the 'Blogs' page is very nice. Good use of white space and colour. Same again for the portfolio page.
  • Love the unique way of displaying Technical Skills.
  • Font choice is perfect. Modern. Clear. Legible.

Cons:

  • The 'About Me' section, I love the typing-terminal animation but I think it needs a 'Skip' button in case people are trying to access information in a short time.
  • What do the percentages mean on the Technical Skills page? Are they confidence in those areas? Or something else? Could do with a key to help viewers quantify the statistics.

Feel free to ignore my comments but I really, really, really like the site! Great example of how to develop a slick, modern site.

Woah! Thank you for assessing my website, Appreciate it :)
I agree that I should have implemented a skip animation, will definitely do it.
Percentages are like how I rate myself out of 100% for every item in that list. Yes that could be bit confusing 😅 as Dan already commented. Will try to show some means to quantify them

Not a problem! It's really excellent and you should be very happy with it (I hope you are).
I'm glad my feedback was at least helpful to you.

If I was to add anything, I'd say double-check that your animation doesn't prevent information being taken in if JavaScript isn't enabled (especially on your About Me section, as that's important information that you absolutely want everyone to read). And as for the tech skills page: even something to just to tell a prospective employer, for example, that this is simply a self-assessment of your own confidence in these areas.
Best of luck!!!
