Long time reader of CSS-Tricks but never registered for the forum until today. Thought I would share my portfolio site for everyone to critique. I launched this version a few months back and would be interested to hear your opinions. I’ve checked it out on my test pc and imac loads of times but if any problems occur let me know, cheers!
I really like this site. The jQuery features are a really nice touch.
My main criticism is that the iMac slider has been done loads, I’m sure you can think of something a bit more original. The other thing is that there isn’t a page for the different projects explaining your role in their creation. An "Inner-page" for each project would be useful.
Cheers for your thoughts. I know what you mean with the iMac, when I built the site originally it was because I was between projects at work so never gave too much creative thought – was just started as a mess about really. Also about the ‘inner detail’ pages totally agree with you and if I get a chance I’m going to revise the site in the next couple of months possibly add in some more detail to each project. Possibly in a ‘lightbox/thickbox etc style’ similar to what I did for the company I work fors work section http://www.grp5.com, check it out if you’ve time.
More thoughts welcome! always good to hear another perspective.
I would agree with keithdevon… your work is really good and I’m left with wanting to know more about it. What went into the project, who was involved, what was your process in meeting whatever challenges you were met with, etc., etc…
Other than that, the site looks really good… great job!
Your header, "Paul Daly Design", I would convert to an image so you can use an alt tag, or just make it straight text with css (looks like Georgia font to me so that should be ok). This would be so that search engines see your name as one of the first elements on the page, and would help your rank if someone searched for "Paul Daly".
Nice folio site with some nice touches. Your other work’s really nice too. As others have mentioned, some more detail on the work you did on each site would be great….maybe a page for each detailing what tools u used, your involvement etc.
One other little thing……your ‘at the moment’ section…..spelling mistake :oops:
