    I would recommend showing a hero image for each project to entice the viewer to dig a little deeper and actually check out the work.

      I absolutely agree with you. Here's why I chose not to do that - it personally stresses me out a bit. Finding the right image to represent an entire project is not an easy task, and by including previews on the landing page it significantly increases the visual complexity.

      Plus, right now, I don't feel like I have a cohesive body of work that works well together in a visual way. They're all seperate projects in seperate mediums.

      I know that in an ideal world it should have images. But - at least right now - I'm willing to make that sacrifice to make something that fits better with how I currently picture my own site.

      Does that make sense? Your point is still absolutely valid and something I thought about a lot while making this. Thinking about reducing the amount of projects so it's not so overwhelming.
