2017 Portfolio

I was aiming for something really minimalistic and without javascript, done in almost exactly 10 hours.

    You're using background-attachment: fixed for the background, which is a performance nightmare. Replacing it with background-repeat or something similar improves the performance drastically. Here's a comparison:

    With background-attachment: fixed: With background-attachment

    With background-repeat: With background-repeat

    This looks really great! I really like the subtlety of everything happening when I scroll.

    A couple pieces of feedback, take it or leave it!

    1. Looks like there are some issues with the mobile view, especially within the case studies. The images don't scale down and begin to get cut off at a certain point.

    2. Because of how interactive the hover state is on the project images on the homepage, I expect them to be clickable, but am surprised to see that they're not.

    3. Lastly, all of the other actionable items on the page have some kind of fun interaction on hover except for the email icon in the upper right!

    Aside from that, nice work!

    Love that you did this without javascript, nice use of whitespace too. Found a typo "to work alonside Google" http://messinmotion.com/google.html

    Hey, nice portfolio, love minimalistic look. But there is problem when hovering on button:


    I'm using Safari 10.0.3

    Crazy how the internet condenses the size of the world and brings people together.

    1. Love the portfolio. Design, writing, and technical implementation are all executed impressively well. Now that the first version is shipped, you should have some fun with it!
    2. Appreciate you using Rellax (I'm the person who wrote it :D). It's so cool to see it being used in the wild!!
    3. My whole family is from Mexicali, so it's encouraging to see design talent emerging from that part of the world. I'd love to hear more how you got started in web design! Holler if you're up for chat moe at dixonandmoe dot com

    Simple and clean. The only thing that I would change are the lines on bg, I would just remove them
