Need some advice first portfolio

Hey! I'm trying to make a career change. I made my first portfolio and would love some feedback.

I still need to add some projects. Please let me know if you find some bugs or have other suggestions.

Hey there!

Really cool site, love the playful and interactive elements. Neat branding.

Few issues:

  • readability issue on the 'Creative Experience title'
  • I would ask someone with an eye for copy editing to go over your about section. Some wording confusing there (i.e. hacking together)
  • 'tech I've been working with' could be bolder or more visual (how about a star system showing level of comfort with each?)
  • actual builds: cool demos. My only suggestion would be to include some actual clients with real world brands, even if these are free. Developing demo/theme sites and developing from specs are two different skill sets and I learnt a lot and gained confidence of future clients by doing a few free gigs. Any local NGO or school is usually thrilled by the offer and happy to give you a testimonial in exchange.

Overall you have a cool style and the builds are functional and fun.

Hope that helps!

Happy building!
