Looks great! I like the animation, it's done very tastefully.
I wouldn't have made the "email me" button full-width. Also, if you use <a href="mailto:foo@bar.dev">email me</a>, the user can use their default email client instead of just gmail. Lastly, there's no call-to-action. If found a great article about calls-to-action here. Here's a snippet.

A call to action (CTA) is a prompt on a website that tells the user to take some specified action....
Without a clear CTA, the user may not know the next steps to take to purchase a product or sign up for a newsletter and is likely to leave the site without accomplishing their task. (source)

In your case, this could be a (prominent) link to the projects or contacts sections.

Great job on the site!

 

Hi Binyamin, thanks for such a thorough feedback I will definitely make the changes you suggested ASAP, thanks a lot!

 

Like the site! Like the colours and animations used, also very clear. Favourite bit are the icons for the skills and tools section :) Also - have you used GitHub Pages for hosting? - If so, would you recommend? I'm currently doing a portfolio site for myself and wondering if worth it. Only suggestion is to check grammar in your about section.
:)

 

Thanks Lorna, and yes I've used gh pages for hosting the website, I didn't want to bother with getting a new domain and fiddling around with SSL, gh pages is a good solution and there aren't any downsides that I can see. I think you should try that , if u get stuck u can hit me up :). Also English is not my first language, so sorry for the grammar I'll fix it ASAP thanks a lot :)

 

Netlify is a great alternative when GitHub Pages just won't cut it. For example, GitHub only accepts certain gems for jekyll sites, and their react support is a bit shaky iirc. I actually use netlify for my personal site.
