  • My portfolio website

    Well, I just finished my portfolio website. I had to do it for one of my classes. He only gave us one month to do it, so there isn't as much animation as I wanted. When I have more time I'll add more animation to the hand and better transitions between pages. But for now what do you guys think?

    you asked for it...

    welcome to the forum. if that's you, you're a cute one.

    brace yourself.

    - i did't like poking you in the eye, nose, ear or mouth...
    - ...until you didn't warn me of an impending pdf. then i poked like you were a virtual voodoo doll. sorry.
    - if you're going to insist on using pop-ups, make them a manageable size
    - i don't know how many elbows you have in real life, but i'm not sure that hand is in the right spot...

    *phew*

    saying all that, i think that your site is very creative. you have some work with promise and really sweet freckles. WELCOME TO THE GDF!

      Very cute, good photographies.
      Your pdf seems very professional, i like the color selection on the site, and it seem you have great skills, im finishing my graphic design study too. I think that if you use some animations, it will look better...

      Good work.

        Thanks for the suggestions. I think what I'd like to do for navigation, when I get around to changing it, is having the buttons elsewhere and just have the picture change when you rollover the buttons. That way there's no poking involved. I actually considered doing that the first time around, but my classmates thought I should do it this way. Oh well.

        Do you mean pop-ups like the resume and when you click on the project pictures? I'll have to work on that. I rushed through that part (it's due tomorrow).

        The hand is actually in the right place. I have really long arms so sometimes I even look out of proportion in real life.

          Welcome Cassandra,

            oh yeah. thanks kool. (read: i'm not scary...much). well, cassadra is a woman of the world - she knows that i'm not a crusty old mountain man, and you aren't a vector cat.

            class assignment? you'll be good. i did mean pop ups like the portfolio & resume - you can tell the computer where to open them and how big they should be. also, what about the samples in your portfolio? ie. the team ice logo (a white rectangle on your pink background...)

            oh! and (this is a quick one to fix), your website is called 'Untitled Document'. wouldn't it be nicer as "poke me! poke me!" or "cassandra's portfolio" or "welcome to the terrordome" or something?

              Welcome to the GDF. There are a lot of wild folks around here so keep your eyes peeled Anywho, as far as your site is goes, I agree with the previous suggestions. Another navigation route to consider is (as you stated) some third-party rollovers but have the third-part image be you doing different things (holding a grapefruit, doing a handstand)...something creative to reflect your obvious creativity. Nice samples btw, I like the Typography piece the most. Let us know if you develop a revamp.

                I agree with the "crusty old man's" critiques. I do think your site is very creative, though. Half the battle is catching someone's attention, so well done!

                I really dig the "LA" logo and the Type rules animation.

                  Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

                  You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

                  I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

                  Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

                  No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...

                  Ha! I sure wouldn't try it with somebody's face.

                  I just happen to have the artwork for what I was talking about. It was part of a large outdoor display at a marina advising boaters about...
