Hello dribbble community! I really need your help, I wanted to redesign my portfolio, it kinda look old to me or maybe is just because I visited it too much :D both of them have positive and negative points to each part, I would like to know what you prefer most this new concept one or the old one?? Please all your feedbacks are appreciated!

So you like more the new one?? @Randyj.Lee
Old one also good :)
It depends on what the purpose of the site is. The new one is focussed on being a portfolio site. The old one is focussed on being an about page.
The new one has a friendlier visual design to my eye, although the social buttons are huge. It has more order to it.
In the old one, the lead paragraph type is too thin, hard to read. For me personally, I'm not a fan of the changing background colours.
Thank you @Phillip Wong ! You can't image how good are those feedbacks for me! The difficulty in reading was the first reason why I decided to make a new website, of course I could change the style of text but generally if felt heavy to me, an I am happy you are confirming this! And I will definitely make the social button smaller :)
@Pietro Schirano Not a problem, happy to help.
If you want to use thin type, try using dark thin type on a light background if your design allows for it. That is often more readable than light thin type on a dark background, like you have in your old site.
New one is better, in 3 seconds I knew who you were and I was already looking at your work. I'd suggest adding small touches of Jquery to spice it up a tad. Perhaps a small fade on hover of the buttons, work, etc.
Great advice man @Michael B.
