    I thought I'd do some artwork for the front of my portfolio

    What do you think?

    I like it! Esp. the "do not eat" part. Are those really your eyes?

        Cool! I've got green eyes too and people are always asking "are you're eyes really that color?"

        I like you cover alot....

          Looks cool. Good work.

          Here's a little tweak. Line the copy at the botton, with the 'r' in 'portfolio'. If you must.

            I like the layout James especially the type treatment (not too sure if you need your name horizontally top left??

            personally though I would let the work inside your portfolio do the talking not the cover.

            That is only my opinion though...

              Oh yeah pay a little more attention to the kerning throughout the word 'portfolio' as stated above.

                Right, I've fixed the text block lining up with the 'r' (I noticed that as soon as I posted it!) I've also adjusted the kerning, and made the cross lines of the t and f line up with the x height on the r.

                My reason for doing a cover page is partly to show off some more artistic work to compliment the corporate work that I've got inside.

                  Since I am not in the job market, I don't deal much with the portfolio issue, but I will say I like that. No critique, just a vote.

                    I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

                    Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

                    On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

                    It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
