    My honest experience with your site - page opened, TLDR, page closed

    EDIT: I shared this because I think I am not only one who could have same experience. When I visited the site I was overwhelmed by too much text and I did not know where to look. There is no visual element which is pleasing my eyes and helping me to be interested in. For example, are stats and social icons so important to be right below the header? For me it was another element that took my attention away from great work of Hamed.

      Thanks for the feedback! It's definitely more dense that a normal site I'd make, but was aiming for a feel similar to magazine spreads like this:

      I share the same sentiment. This must be the most beautiful-impossible-to-scan website I've ever seen. So just to break it down:

      • I don't mind combining serifs with sans serifs but there seems to be no logical/structure behind how they are used
      • The way the website is structured seems like it is a website made for you (author) rather than for a visitor. I don't really see why should I care how much you weight. Or how many steps you took yesterday. I find it to be very gimmicky (I feel the same way about how many coffees somebody drank yesterday)
      • If you want to show off your front end/design skills it works perfectly. But if you want the visitor to find value in your website, I think it fails in this regard.
      • The most interesting content on the website (articles and work experience) is hidden almost at the bottom.
