So I finally made a site for myself, and was wondering what people thought of it: [DELETED LINK].
I’m not good with fonts, so feedback on the font I used for my name is especially appreciated :)January 20, 2015 at 8:37 pm #193761
I’d go with a bit more contrast between the letters and the background. When it’s coincides with white, the text isn’t that readable anymore. Nice idea to switch the background on page load.January 21, 2015 at 3:34 pm #193876
I’m usually on FF with a 1280 screen. The snow on the mountain and the image with ocean foam are a few examples where the smaller centered text gets sort of lost.January 21, 2015 at 4:14 pm #193883
I think that’s a good choice, slick and businesslike.January 26, 2015 at 4:19 pm #194288claire2013Participant
Nice site. I think you should center everything vertically and horizontally. There’s too much space at the bottom which loses focus to your information (headshot, name and links). Also add some space between your name and web developer.January 27, 2015 at 12:30 pm #194363shaneismeParticipant
I’m not a fan of any instance of opening up a new tab when clicking on a link. I let the user determine if they want to do that.
I’m also not a fan of a site home that’s simply a “splash” page. Maybe instead of a separate portfolio page, just make your home the portfolio?
Speaking of the portfolio, it’s not inherently obvious that there is content below the fold. You should tease it if you don’t want it to just be there.
Your text should be on a solid background for ease of legibility where it’s needed (like in the descriptions on your portfolio). At the very least it should have a heavy (80%+) opacity behind it.January 27, 2015 at 8:41 pm #194399claire2013Participant
Hmmmm, I’m viewing your site on a thunderbolt display so that might be why I see it at the top of the page as opposed to centered in the middle. It’s def centered horizontally, but not vertically. I can possibly take a screen shot if you like.
Also, not sure if this was your intention, but I just seen the updated page and noticed the background image repeating itself. To the far left, you can see a solid line where the image stops and repeats. Again, this on my my thunderbolt.
