Feedback on Portfolio

・1 min read

Hi, this year I'm trying to move from my years of working as a sysadmin over to being a web developer. I was told a portfolio/website was a good idea and so I made one.

If you have a moment can you have a look at it, https://link2twenty.github.io/, and let me know what you think and what I should change.

The source is here.


Thank you.

Nice work, I like the rotate effect on hover over the links! It's not too distracting but still catches my eye. I agree with @ben that a bit of color would make it pop a little better, even if it was just in the section headings or something? Anyway, overall it's clean and to-the-point and I was able to learn a little about you in a short time. Portfolio success πŸ‘πŸΌ

 

Thank you, hmm, I wonder where to add the colour πŸ˜•

 

Don't stress about it, either! I usually have two modes:

  1. Feeling super creative, and just start changing things everywhere with reckless abandon until I like them
  2. Oh gosh if I make this text 1.1em instead of 1em will someone be sad?

Just wait for the right time haha

I've added a tiny little splash of Orange. I was thinking about adding some colour to the shadows but I'm not a big fan of coloured shadows.

What do you think? πŸ™‚

I like it! Also subtle but adds a little something πŸ’―

 

It really works well and represents you well.

Looking at it on my phone I feel like it could be cleaned up around the edges a bit.

I feel like some of the flourishes are a bit out of place on mobile and I noticed the spinner on your image a bit offcenter.

To me there could also maybe be a bit more color to give it some added cheer. The grayish green is a good vibe but maybe could have one more complementary color. πŸ™‚

 

Thank you, Ben, it means a lot that you found the time to look at it!

I presume the flourish you mean is the rotate and scale on the link icons? Do you think it's worth disabling them on smaller screen sizes?

I agree with the colour assessment, I'm not really a designer but saw there was a post about colour theory earlier today so I'll have a little think.

Thank you again

EDIT:

I've added a splash of Orange, what do you think? Is it enough?

 

Hey!

Maybe it's just me, but I feel like the links should be each div that has the classes "card social".
This way the clickable area will the the whole div (I think that's better :D).

 

Thank you for taking a look! You're absolutely right, I've fixed that now πŸ™‚

 

Very nice ! πŸ™Œ

the site is clear and the loading is very fast. we do not get lost. in short I love your site. this is what is missing on the internet, well optimized and clear websites.
