Web Design Portfolio
Posted 15 May 2012 - 11:47 PM
I would like to see what people think of my portfolio site as I have this annoying trait of being over critical of myself, sometimes its a good thing, sometime when dealines are invloved it can be a curse...

On the one hand, I am a fan of simplicity, it's bold and it's clear.
On the other hand, I'm not sure I like the blog style format for a web design business. Whilst the colours are striking, I feel the site also lacks identity and would like to see more creativity put into the logo.
I hope that you don't find my comments to be too critical; from a quick look around your site it would appear that you are, like me, just starting out and would suggest you concentrate just as much on the positive feedback that you receive, as the negative.
Best of luck with the site!

Nice site, the design used is very popular at the moment. One thing I would recommend is more images to break the pages up as theirs a lot of text only at the moment.
Also I'd recommend splitting your service skills into pages for SEO, and so clients can read more about particular services.

Also there is a white block going across the page just above the footer, im not sure if this is deliberate or and error or just poor loading from my end but its a bit confusing and breaks up the nice layout

And Artisan please forgive my attrocious spelling mistakes!
I am currently working on a new revision of my portfolio and will post again once its online.
Thanks again all and happy coding!

It looks as though you have two top sections, almost as though there are two rivalling concepts in play. The western style of the top section conflicts with the graffiti style lower down. I think that one site should have one stylistic concept.
Hi James, thanks for your comment.
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by graffiti style.. All the fonts iv used for headlines share the similar 'retro' feel or 'western' as you said. Im hoping this isn't a strange compatibility issue.
Could you copy and paste the text or try and explain where the 'second top section' appears in your mind, I can't see what you mean at the moment but this is what site review are all about I guess.

1) You can use Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin Icon for social connection.
2) Get in Touch is also shown by some icon or highlight it and also applied same for Recent Tweets.
3) Also optimize your site for search engines using proper keywords in Meta tags,Title and in Content. Focus on more onpage seo can help your website to get high rank in search engines.
4) Your Email link firstname.lastname@example.org is not working, so look through it.
5) As you mentioned that you will work on spelling mistakes, so finish this work as there are still some mistakes. So please correct them as they will not create good impression.
So these are few tips. Best of luck for projets. :-)

Just a quick note, the links under your photo on "about me" page do nothing. I am referring to the links which say "view portfolio" and "get in touch". Also just something aesthetically, try breaking the phone number up on the bottom of the page because it can make it easier for people to type in or write down, like so "07725 878818".
Great work though!

- Optimise your images for web the following can still be optimised and save space and speed up loading
- You have 2 requests to images that don't exist
- You use inline css. move all your css into a separate file. will help the browser to render the page quicker
- Minify your css and js files and combine all css into one file and all js into one file ( where possible )
- use correct html. will help the browser to render your site quicker as he doesn't have to try fixing your little errors
- url wise -> get rid of the .html at the end of the pages
- Your site loads with and without. if someone tries loading it without www redirect them to the www. version ( or the other way around but don't allow both)
