I launched my portfolio website 6 months ago and been wondering if there's a way (or need) to improve it, maybe you can give it a look. Thanks


Hi Jeroni,

Lovely portfolio, if it helps you, here is my honest feedback which I hope helps, ignore me if you disagree. 🙂 

- You favicon is illegible, and you have such a nice logo, perhaps just use your logo shape here, and make the favicon black so it's more prominent, - these little details help in portfolios.

- You have link in your footer that don't go anywhere, I would remove these.

- You mention a few services, but as you have a limited number of pieces of work, why not just simply your services to something like "graphic designer for hire, creative problem solver", then when the work comes add to your services as you have work to show for it - it looks less fake this way IMHO.

- I notice on you hero image of each project you show beautiful photography rather than your work. As this is a portfolio, your intended audience wants to see at a glance what YOU can do, so I would suggest the graphic design elements of the project are the hero shots and the photography stays as filler within the gallery. 

- Lastly, I don't think the main image should be you, but rather some lovely quote about how you work, what your looking for, or just something witty, keep your head shot for an about me page - and there add in your cv, some client testimonials, and your education achievements.  

I've attached screenshots of the things I referring to, which I hope helps me make sense.
