    Guys, I need your feedback on this one!
    It's so hard to design something for yourself.

    It's my new portfolio which will be full retina, responsive, css3, html5 & jquery.
    Simple but effective. The different blocks are not definitive.

    » Also the hire me form.

    Thanks!

    I don't think the different sections need a shadow, also people might not want to scroll down to see info about you so adding a button to the menu would be nice.

    Other then that it's really nice, I like these kind of portfolio websites ;)

    Your inline labels on the "Hire me" screenshot has too much space on the left in my opinion.

    I think the about section could use some extra love. The 'hire me' button looks a bit lost there.

    Maybe you should add a close button to the popup ...

    Other then that I think it's a very clean design. Looking forward to the final version!

    Lovely, I really like it!

    Some feedback;
    You aligned the text (vertical) inside the buttons based on their x-height. That feels a little odd to me. Looks like the text is not exactly in the middle of the shape, however it is... I personally would put them 1 or 2 pixels more to the bottom so it looks more natural. I don't know what other designers think about this?

    I really love the colours! Especially that red you've used in the buttons.

    The about paragraph isn't on the same line as the headline. But you probably won't have that problem once it's developed.

    I also like the big images you use. Gives a good indication of your design skills and I think that is the goal of the website. Nice work!

    You're a nice what? Smiley face?

    Personally, I really dislike titles that don't have a capital letter at the start of a sentence.

    Also, it looks like "about" is a few more pixels to the right than the "21 etc." age.

    Besides it all, it looks good. No bullshit, just work in your face, I dig it.

    Oh, nice shades too.

    Looks really nice Dennis. Lovely colors and I'm digging the different blocks, so I would keep them.

    I feel like there are some alignment problems, like for example the game design image is a bit smaller. I would make it as width as the content above, starting with the title on the left and ending with the image on the right. I think it's 977px. Hope you get what I mean. :-)

    And you're using small caps everywhere, so I would drop the capital letters in the 'See in the app store' and 'See full design' buttons, otherwise it gets confusing.

    Huge fan of the 'hire me' form btw, so clean and nice. Great work man. Looking forward to seeing it live!

    Wow, thanks! Happy to get such a good comments and super handy feedback.

    @Davey Heuser That extra 'about' menu item is a great addition, thanks!

    @Jon Øvrebø Dubielzyk Thanks for pointing that out, you're right!

    @Jelle Versele Agree with the 'hire me' button. For the popup I want to keep it very simplistic. I think users will click out the box (in the black part) to close the popup. Do you think this will work?
    Thanks for the good comment!

    @Daykiine ⟁ Yes, correct, thanks.

    @Dennis Verjans At one time I used to place the button text like that but now I think it's more correct to use the x-height. It's a good discussion but also a personal opinion. I don't think there is an universal answer for this.
    Thanks for the good comments!

    @Vaibhav Haha dude! :D

    @Jeroen Hofman Haha, typo! Must be "I'm nice".
    Everything without a capital is more a branding for my portfolio. I like it, but I understand some people dislike this! I'll revision this and maybe I'll change it!
    Thanks for the compliment

    @John ♖♜ Mmh, good you say that. I never noticed that!

    @Brandon Locke Typo! Must change that, thanks.

    @Haziq Mir Capitalize all the characters form the title or only the first letter?

    @Kim Wouters Great feedback, thanks! Surely gonna change that!

    @Derek Clark @Andrew Tamba @Bert Devriese Thanks!

    Looking good Dennis. I'm not sure about telling your hourly rate. It depends on the projects you do? Again, looking good!

    @Dennis Covent Hope my feedback was helpful!

    Personally I'm not a big fan of sacrificing usability to keep the layout simple. I think those two things should go together. Off course a lot of people know they just have to click outside the popup to close it. But I'm sure there are still people who don't ... So whether or not you should add a close button, depends a bit on your target audience I think.

    Just my thoughts ...

    @Dreamix Studio It will help to filter the requests. It's an indication, I keep working on project base.
    Thanks!

    @Jelle Versele Yeah you're right, but my target audience is involved in tech and mostly in the latest techniques. I'll design a close button and will compare them and make my decision! Thanks.

    Great looking page. One thing I'd suggest - remove the "21 years young" thing. It's not really professional to speak about age, I'm not sure what value it adds to the page, and I know a few clients that would hesitate to hire someone so young. Otherwise, well done!
