Portfolio Design

    This is a very early idea for a portfolio design, as I'm more of a developer I skipped straight to the browser, so to check out the HTML/CSS look here (only checked in chrome):


    It would be nice to get some early feedback, I'm not happy with the separation of the sections so maybe I could get some ideas? Also credit to Matt Gaunt for the network section.

    Nice one, looks like you're on track. Some feedback:

    Agreed, some more space between the sections is needed. Perhaps a slightly darker background colour behind 'What I Do" would help separation between the section above and below.

    The thin, light-coloured type on dark background in the hover over for the pieces of work is hard to read.

    Write a few more words for 'Front End Design' to balance it out.

    Personally, the colour changing background on hover for the different 'You can find me all over the web' is a bit heavy for me. Subjective though.

    A little redundant perhaps to have Dribbble and Twitter links in the footer as well, but appreciate that it may make a lot sense when you build out your other pages.

    I like the top nav and lead statement layout.

    Consider being more direct with your text as it's a little subdued and gives a feel like you're not totally confident in what you offer. Consider changing 'I aim to create websites...' to 'I create websites....' and 'I like to create beautiful web designs...' to 'I create beautiful web designs....' and 'I can use web standard...' to 'I use web standard...'.

    Your copyright notice could do with some right padding.

    Consider making reducing font sizes for the small screen views. Ditto for your logo.

    Phillip thank you for taking time to post excellent feedback! I'll make some changes and post an update. I have used em's for the font sizes so I'm not sure why you're not seeing smaller font sizes on smaller screens. I'll take a look into this as well.
