I guess it's not bad :)
@Daniel Keller I guess the main problem is, that you trying so hard to achieve to do something perfect, so you missing those little details that do design :) like font sizes, arrangement etc. :)
It's a pain but you might have to just sit on it until you can get it right, gain the experience or can afford to pay someone to do it for you.
@Rich Baird yea, I will spam dribbble with concepts, and I hope some good concepts.
of course I do it myself, but I think you know how hard it is to design your own website and be satisfied with it, don't you?
@Daniel Keller Yes I do. Currently trying to revise the aesthetic of BP&O, I have a vision but really not sure on functionality. It's something I'm happy to pay someone to execute though.
@Rich Baird I'm glad you do! I love BP&O, excited how it will look like!
Its not bad, a lot of the actual design as @Charlie Isslander said, is based on fonts/arrangement/align and stuff, its not only that, layouts like this one will give an intirely different experience when coded wisely with the help of html5/css3.
But the main mistake here is about the content, which in this case is you yourself. You are thinking of your self as a product, and therefore your promoting your self as one, I think you have tons of great work, and you don't need to compliment it, just make a great and simple design, your works could shine in. Be yourself, and let your work speak for you :)
@Justina Valuzyte thank you Justina, glad you gave your opinion!
I can see what you mean, its still way too much stuff around!
the reason I went with such a layout, is that my current website http://danielkeller.eu already is a very simple portfolio, so I don't need to build something I already have..
I will think of a new concept, and post it here if I have anything good to show!
I think the type is great. I like the 'Who I am' part because it has such strong contrast with the rest.
Add more color though. And do not design a website in Illustrator.
@Daniel Really? I have never thought about designing a website in Indesign ;p I always used Photoshop (we were doing it in Ps also at studies) it's the most common app for web designing, I guess. Maybe you should convince yourself to it :) How about you @Jord?
You have mentioned a lot of valuable points here, Daniel. I agree with the most. Recently I was redesigning a lot of stuff for some website, so yes I have received about 12 different .psd's, so I agree that 'bigger' websites can be a pain in the ass. But still I think the flat design is not the only design that every client wants to receive for their websites / ui's etc., and Photoshop still has good enhancements for the usual web designer even if it's not perfect. PS. I haven't heard about this new Adobe app, does it have any codename? Or is there more info about it?
@Milosz Klimek 1 new app they made but still is in its baby shoes is "Adobe Edge", theres a preview to test it out, but its unfinished, they're still developing it. And then theres a poll adobe created for a completely new design tool for web, but I have to search for it.
update: the poll / survey from adobe is already closed, sorry!

@Daniel Puglisi did you tried it out yet? I didn't, got a PC at home... But there's a lot of tools like these around, such as Edge. :)
