    There's no date on the items so I don't know why you thought that? The reason they're separated is that I'm in the process of shifting content round, which will end up in me closing that old portfolio site down. This will replace it.

      It looks very much like a vertical timeline and other sites like Facebook and Google Maps use this style as well.

        So if you thought they were in some sort of order, how would that have changed your way of viewing them? For all you know those projects could be in time order. Doesn't matter what order they are in, they are still items of viewable content.

        Edit: would a simple heading change things?

          It's the dots and lines, I immediately associate those with a timeline. There are certainly various ways to layout projects and I can see that you're trying to do something different.

            Thank you for being constructive and taking the time to give feedback. After some consideration I think I can solve the problems you have pointed out:

            • Remove my portfolio item: It does confuse users, essentially duplicate content
            • Change projects to be in time order: This will mean the line has slightly more sense, plus it'll pusher newer work to the top
            • Add a 'Projects' heading: I tried this in the design phase and it didn't look right, if I reduce it's contrast then maybe it won't make the flow so clunky
