What sucks about my website?

    That big giant orange dropdown CTA trying to get people to sign up for your emails has got to go. It triggered on a delay for me, so I had already tried to start exploring the page when it unceremoniously forced itself onto my screen. The animation was jerky, too.

    Other than that, one of the big things is that I think you should introduce some kind of white background for the actual interview content. On the one I clicked on (https://failory.com/interview/howell-market), there were images with white backgrounds that looked messy.

    Implementing some sort of variation in that dark background will also make the site a bit more dynamic– I really think this will go a long way towards improving things.

    Double check contrast ratios on all the text on the site– make sure it meets WCAG 2.0 minimum.

    The tag interaction is weird– you need some kind of hover state, and maybe also some way for people to understand that things are being filtered.

      First of all, thanks for your feedback. I really appreciate it.

      I have just quite the big orange CTA. I have been thinking about quitting it for many weeks, but I didn't want to as it converts pretty well. But, it sucks. So DELETED.

      White background seems like a great idea. We were even thinking of turning all the website to the white background. Does it make sense?

      What you say about filters and tag is totally true. I will create something to let users know which filter are they seeing.
