  • My first portfolio website

    Hi!

    I have just created my first portfolio website and i would be very grateful for some professional feedback on my work as i have not had any yet. I am currently a student and have just started my final year. The work on the site was all designed within the last 8 months. Hope to hear from you guys, Thank you!

    Very nice. Clean, easy to read, navigate and some good work there. Some might say a little sparse, but it could also be interpreted as minimalist. I like it.

      Looks good - include something about you. People buy from people. If you are intending to get freelance work (or a job) from it you must make yourself known. Locality would be good!! But the site is clean and neat (which I like) Like the work too!

      Only criticism - watch your typos/spelling. . .

            Don't use the width or height properties of the <img> tag. It slows down page load and looks awful.

            Resize the image in an editor like photoshop. Also you shouldn't be using GIF for your work. GIF is an outdated format for arrows, lines, & text. Any photo or complex illustration should be a JPG.

            Your line-height is too high. What is that 2em? That may work in print but on the web 1.5 or less is usually good, especially with smaller type like yours. I think there's also took much vertical space between your work. On the "genius" page I did not even see the little flash widget until I thought to go back and look. More consistency would be helpful. On some pages all you have is the widget, on others you have graphics and then the widget.

            I think your headings should be bigger, or at least bold or styled. They don't look like headings at all, but you still want them to be read as headings.

            "Contact form" is a bad title. Form is something someone who knows HTML will recognize, not your average user. Say "Email me", "Contact me", something with an action that will make sense to everyone. Also there's way too much space between the form elements.

              I will have a look at what you have said, thanks for your feedback, i have had no real experience in web design before. That is why i used Mr Site which unfortunately controlled the spacing between the widget and the text and images, also it would only allow me to upload GIF's for certain pages. Using that service there are some thing i can not change which is a pain! Thank you

                  Hi Pilotguy and welcome to GDF.

                  I can't see the mark too well with the added watermark over it. You say it contains a plane and a train (which I can't see). Where did you get those elements?...

                  To add to what B has said, although you are approaching the endeavor as a ''free time'' hobby-like weekend project, it is indeed a business and will need to be treated as such. Without a business plan,...

                  The fact that it is so easy to jump into this market is the very thing that makes it so hard to succeed at it. In other words, the market is utterly, totally, completely saturated with people, like yourself,...

                  I agree with Navian's comments, so I won't repeat them. What I will say, however, is that I like it. It's simple, to the point, distinctive, easily read and instantly conveys an outdoorsy, slightly nostalgic,...

                  MaxF orce -- the kerning's not good.

                  You've stretched out the typography on trailers. Again, not good.
