Well, it's more like v7 by now, but I'm starting fresh. Kinda.
My 2011 theme seems so right to me, and I'm sticking with that gut feeling, leaving it similar, but updating it, tweaking it, making the design better for different devices etc.
Took me most of 2012 to now to complete, it's been ages.

Just a small piece of feedback/opinion. One of my pet hates is people using the word "aspiring". I did for for some time but I think it just portrays a lack of self-confidence in your work, even if that's not the case. So I'd drop that word :)
@Matt Willmott Legit? :) Perhaps I should. My only reason anyway is because I haven't yet achieved my qualifications (though I have knowledge gained outside of that), so I'm not sure it'd be right to say I'm one if I can't deliver the industry standard etc. But I agree though, it makes me look like a tool haha, and kinda isn't the most confident sounding either.
Edit: In fact, I'll get rid of it, and change all my mini bios that say aspiring, from now on I own my title :) Cheers for the pep-talk Matt, much appreciated.
No problem Louis! I'm certain plenty of the industry's most admired designers don't have a single relevant qualification. And who is to say what the "industry standard" is, especially when it is evolving all the time, quicker than most of us can keep up with.
Too many people get worried about being as good as the rest. If you can do work you enjoy and are proud of then that's all that matters. If others like it too then that's a bonus. I think we're all aspiring, even the "best" designers. No-one ever knows it all.
I think it looks better already now you've taken that word away. Keep it up :)
Scratching colors is inspiring. Love your site man.
Nice work mate. I agree with Matt about removing the word 'aspiring'. It would be cool to see some of your CSS experiments too.
Thanks @Jonathan, already sorted the removal of 'aspiring', it's all good now :) My experiments can still be seen in the labs section of my site, which I mention in my about page. Not sure I have room for all of my experiments in my work page (they're not really work, more like fun really). :)
