Many (many) months overdue, I've just launched the re-design of my portfolio website.
While I did still quite like the previous version, the new content I had was outgrowing the format. The categories dividing the work no longer made much sense because of too many crossovers and it was also bothering me how restricted the presentation of the work itself was.
The new layout for the individual project pages allows for more variation depending on the type of work and lets me easily describe and illustrate the design process.
Undoubtedly some things still need fixing and proofreading is tedious, so let me know if you notice anything (spelling mistakes, broken links, browser issues..) I don't have access to many mobile devices, so if someone could let me know if it looks ok on an ipad, etc. that would be great. Thanks!

Congrats Claire! So much great work.
I love it, it is really great! awesome colors and layout
Thanks Trevor and Neil! Really appreciate it.
Definitely a fan of the old site, but the refresh looks awesome. Type porn, plain & simple...
Cheers Michael! Yeah I was a little sad to see the old one go but have to admit, the lettering is much bigger now ;)
Really great work Claire!I honestly think it would be hard for your work to not look good no matter how it was displayed :) I absolutely love the simple format of the thumbnails and the white space between them. This style will also be easier to keep adding content to without compromising the look/feel of the entire site.
I do have to say that I loved your old site, but this one definitely rocks way more! Is your old site for sale btw? :P Haha cheers CC!
Looks great Claire...really fantastic work.
Just the way a portfolio should be done—showcases the work without overwhelming it! Love it Claire!
This looks amazing! Clean and well thought out. LOVE IT.
@Joe Prince Thank you very much! Yeah I absolutely agree about adding content, it was just getting too difficult with the old one (I did manage to bring those navigation box colours into some of the new thumbnails, so not all is lost, haha)
@Nikita Prokhorov Thanks a lot, glad you like it!
@Jared Granger Happy to hear that, thank you very much!
Sorry Andrea, looks like our comments crossed paths - thanks a lot!
I liked the old site, but I love the new one much more, because of it's simplicity and layout... not sure if the old site had this, but the only thing I miss on your new site is your personal logo / wordmark... a lovely written "Claire Coullon"!
I really love how you include your process alongside your finished work. Just beautiful!
New Site and Avatar for the new year, huh?
Great stuff! Interesting bio too. You lived in the middle east? Where?
Awesome as always!
@Daniel Keller Thanks, I'm very glad you think so! I had an old personal wordmark on the first picture of my old slideshow but not as part of the layout. I do need to draw a new one though, thanks for reminding me!
@Erica Sirotich Really happy you pointed that out (especially because it takes a while to write!), thanks very much.
Emir, I have no idea what this @mention thing is doing with your name so I'll delete it, haha. Yeah, I thought it was about time for a portfolio update (and that I'd try to beat you to it!). I lived in Bahrain for a couple of years when i was in high school. Nice to see rain only a couple of days a year ;)
@Greg Christman Thank you!
Great new way to showcase yr work, Claire! I like that hover on works is consistent with the header. Gotta love the warm color palette, too! Nice desktop :)
@Riley Cran Thanks very much!
@Milosz Klimek Thank you, very nice of you to notice :) Glad you like the colours too! Cheers.
Oh and @Joe Prince see if you can spot the mention of you :) (Haha good luck with all that text)
Haha I give up :) Shot you a message on your site btw.
Love it :)
Love it, simple and good-looking. Claire, your Arrived is amazing!!!
