Hello Kenny, this is a really great looking website! Everything is very simple and intuitive with very little distractions on the page! I have a few suggestions.

  1. The little book animation on hover is very nice, it looks like the drop shadow changes on hover for the books as well. I think adding some kind of hover effect on movies and podcasts would make sense, even if it is just a drop shadow.

  2. The tags on each page are a great feature to sort through the books. However, there is no visible feedback for which one is selected. When I first clicked on the 'Race' button under 'Books' there was no visible change on the website and I wasn't sure if the buttons worked. It seems like it's just because all of the books are under 'Race'. It would help if you highlight 'View All' when you are viewing all books and highlight 'Race' when you are viewing 'Race', etc.

  3. In the pages for the individual books there are tags for each category the book belongs to. I think it would be great if I could click on those tags and be redirected to the book page with that tag set as the filter.

  4. it was strange going to the last page of businesses and the cards weren't clickable, I see how it makes sense to have the smaller buttons that go to an external page. However for consistencies sake, I wonder if you would want to have sub pages for each business as well?

  5. I don't know if you have plans to add more categories but a section featuring black activists or creators would also be cool, there are people consistently making content other than podcasts and it would be great to see a collection of them as well.

I hope you found this useful! I look forward to seeing the finished product!

Hello Hayden,

This was extremely helpful!

  1. I made this change

  2. This is good point. I added this feature

  3. I will add this tomorrow

  4. I made the card clickable and added a little animation like the books and movies. I am thinking about the sub page idea. Need to update a few things before I can implement it.

  5. I am definitely going to add these featuring black activists or creators. This a a great idea

Thank you for all the help.
