Why does the site take so long to load? it's only about a dozen images.
Why are there two pictures of the vitamins and hand cream when the same product is in both?
Why so many pictures of your cars?
Why are the gummy vitamins separated into two thumbnail sections? They are just variations of the same one design.
The repeats get confusing. Consolidating them will make the projects stronger. Branding (slide 1) > jar (slide 2) > jar variations (slide 3).
Revise your resume design.
What did you do for the retail stores?
all good and valid points. thank you!
On your about page I really like that image that's being used and it has a nice lifestyle feel to it. I'd consider whiting out the license plate instead of blurring it (reminds me of the show cops or something).
I also don't understand the text rotating from "create good stuff" to "create better stuff" which one is it?
If your audience is people who use macs, make sure this is retina ready.
80% of portfolio gets viewed by an ipad first.*
Why shadowbox if there's not any other views? Right click/ new tab on the magnifying glass doesn't do anything.
The renders of the cans can be like that, but that cheesy background ruins it. Why a wood floor? Just put it on solid white or black.
Why so many camera and laptop ads? They're all the same.
Why that strange sketch that wasn't retouched? Lose that.
Why aren't the social media icons and copyright aligned with the menu options?
Nice, but at first/quick viewing, I'd have no idea what kind of job you're looking for. Art director? Print designer? Packaging designer? Artworker? Agency-side? Client-side? Freelance?
Some sort of clarifying statement/focus about what your next job should be would be helpful to CDs.
This folio looks great if the intended audience is another designer.
If your intended audience is a CD, maybe
If your intended audience is a hiring exec, not a creative, you may want to:
1. Brand yourself, i.e. put YOUR OWN LOGO somewhere on every page, otherwise they don't remember you, as most creative work may look "almost the same" to them (not you, but to them)
2. Explain, in text what role you had, who the client was, what supposedly amazing award or business result occurred due to this work
3. have a bit of a narrative, somewhere to "hook the story" when they try to say something about you to other execs, they love to say things like "this guy is the one for us, he was the main guy behind that AMEX campaign that got so many new signups per month" or whatever...
just remember, visual selling to non-visual people may require more story, more info and more selling yourself than most designers like to do, as we think our work speaks for itself.
Otherwise, nice work, I might group it a bit differently, but my thoughts are said above, and yes, it's very slick. Congrats.
^ HIRE EVERYONE IN NYC!
Nice! Hollar if you are ever looking for a gig in NYC!
Or if you wanna race!
Excellent feeling at first but :
As image loading is not enough fast on my computer, the page starts with a white bkgd, and a little dot that moves.
I had to reload the page to realize that it was a scroll wheel.
-> change your backgound color or change your mouse background color.
Anyway, I still don't know who you are, what you do, how involved you are in the projects we see. need more desc.
You have a nice car
Whats all this 'Super Swede' stuff? And the tee-shirts? You're leading with what is, I assume, personal projects? That's not a good start.
Beer can renders are poor and take away from the design.
Designed for touchscreen first, I take it? It limps along like an old dog when I try and use the scrollwheel on my mouse to navigate.
On the about page - main image doesn't stretch to fill? It's kind of pointless this page, no?
Relying upon that hamburger icon for your 'main' navigation is a bit clumsy and thoughtless. Id' just get rid of the 'pages' you have and stick your contact details at the bottom.
All the feedback so far is spot on. These little revisions will improve your site. Good job partner and best of luck. Go get 'em!
The one napkin sketch seems out of place to me. I'd replace it with another project.
great comments. thank you! ...all of you.
- why is the magnifying glass on each thumb?
- why does only clicking on the thumb takes you to image?
- why is there only one image per work?
- why are same project in different thumbs?
- why no description?
- why are you not telling people what type of designer you are?
- why are these projects just mix bag of stuff?
Nice looking site! I really like the thumbnails, rollovers and the typeface is perfect. Black, white and gold is one of my favourite colour combinations and looks good in relation to the surrounding colour images.
I too would recommend retouching your car photos. Mainly the light posts and tree growing out of the roofs and perhaps the parking lot lines. If you're feeling really ambitious I'd also clean up some of the reflections in the car.
I like your beer package design and I think it would be nice to expanded upon that. Breaking it up and showing the logo, typeface, colours, the box that it comes in, tap etc. individually. Displaying the project like brand guidelines in a sense. I've seen other people use this to show their projects and I think it works well.
nice work man. Is this hand coded or did you start with a template?
