Currently in the process of coding this, it's the new concept for my site. The central feature with diamonds will feature latest portfolio items/dribbble shots, blog posts, recent products etc.
Any feedback appreciated.

Have you considered flipping the 'arrow' of the diamonds, so there's one diamond at the top? An up arrow would subtly suggest more positive things, imo, and let you 'feature' one item at the top.
But yes, I like it. What's your plans for deploying it, on a CMS or not?
I'll try that out. I'm currently in process of coding it. Custom CMS and backend is what's being used so far. Considered Anchor, WP, Jekyll and eventually just decided to make one with a friend of mine. Any suggestions otherwise?
And thanks again for the feedback.
I honestly prefer the down arrow. It leads the visitor down the page.
looks like a STEALTH BOMBER.
PEWPEWPEWPEW KASPLOOOOSH. PEWWWWM
Really dig the look and personal logo.
@Jamie Syke I'm really liking Nanoc Right now.
@Rob Sim Will check it out, thanks for the tip!
I agree with @George Otsubo! Love how open everything is, great work!
Looks great! I'd get rid of the widow at the bottom though.
I love the way this is turning out. Only thing I'd suggest is altering the navigation up top. Between your logo and the navi and then the arrow beneath, it looks really funky/off-centered. Maybe center the navi with the arrow and put the logo above it? I'd also try making the Parag. text a sans serif font and the headers a serif/slab?
Great work J. Simple and flat.
@Seth Ely Hm, I agree. But there's not a lot of content below, and the main focus is to get people to pick on an item or go to the nav, I guess. The arrow is, in itself, an area to interact with so going down may encourage people to gloss past it in search of the content it's pointing at. Either way looks gorgeous, though.
@Cat Smith There's a lot more space on the live site I think and I've tried a few different nav options and this worked best, thanks for the feedback though. I'm not sure about the changing of fonts either, as the body of most of the site will be set in a sans serif, including the blog. I do plan to revisit the fonts at some point later into development though. Again, thanks for the feedback Cat :)
@Steve Fraschini Thanks!
@Jonathan Ginn Yeah, I'll have to look into this more and maybe test a few different iterations with users to see what is most effective for the site and interaction with the object. Thanks again for your feedback :)
