    I like what I see. It reminds me of a quick sketch done with a Bic pen.

    However, with all the links going to other sites and a different aesthetic, I wonder if it would be better to house some of those items on your domain using a similar design.

    I agree with Pedro Pimenta that adding title attributes to the links may improve the SEO, but more importantly, improve the accessibility of your page.

    Keep up the good work Ryan.

    I love it. It's a simple solution with personality that connects everything. Even though some have mentioned flushing out the site to include portfolio works in here in the same aesthetic, I feel it's not needed at all.

    That's the beauty of what you did. I get a flavor of you in the scoop of the "ice cream" you provide... I don't need to eat a half gallon to decide if I like the taste...

    What's with the cows? Ahah

    You figured... this is not a good size, let's just put some moo's there? Thats's awesome :D

    On another note, regarding SEO. I have [almost] no idea how it works but I think adding title and/or alt on the buttons and images would help heaps!

      Haha yup! :) Thanks for your feedback! I had titles at one point, but wasn't super into when they appear on hover. I'll probly put them back though!

    I'll leave the technological critiques to people who know about that than I do. But coming from a visual design and experience perspective this rules. Loaded fast like whoa and i love the style. <3

    I really like this. Uniquely unpretentious, yet shows skill and personality with seemingly little effort.

    My thoughts; + Cool use of the nTLD. + Simple website. + Has everything that someone needs to 'get an idea of who you are'. - Would like a little more life on the website, maybe hovers animating in... or something like that?

    Looks great..

    But I can see you are not using texts, while SVG Supports Text, you can benefit from SEO right?

    I like the design a lot and really dig your portfolio! I have to say, though: For people using screenreaders or simply using their keyboard to tab around, your site isn't usable. If you're going to list HTML and CSS as a skill, definitely consider adding :focus states and titles to your links.

    Nice! Love the aesthetics, but, what about search engine indexing? Looking at the code doesn't seem to be any content that google could understand.

    I think it's nice and different enough.

    The two things I would say:

    — The hover effect on the links should probably be increased, it's a bit too subtle at the moment and that's from someone who was looking for it / is a designer.

    — On your CV, the stats suggest you've been working for over nine years, but I think what you're saying is that you've been freelancing for the 4+ you've been working. It's not a big deal and it's probably be fine, but in a world where a lot of people consider freelancing to be a permanent job, it's a little confusing.

    Hope that's not too negative, I liked the site a lot.

    Visually, I think it looks great. I can't imagine it's at all accessible for search engines / anyone who relies on the text of websites, though.

      I struggled with this a lot. Eventually decided that any hacky thing I could do to help with SEO or screen readers wasn't going to be semantic and would only just get docked on google's side of things.

    I find the color scheme to be a bit harsh; the bright blue on pastel blue seems difficult to read, especially when paired with a low readability handwriting font.
