    Hey friend,

    1. Your feedback is SUPER helpful. Honestly the initial audience was people who already knew who I was, or that I sent an email to with a link, but this is kinda blowing up so I should probably introduce myself.

    2. Also I should do some editing to make it clear that this isn't my first project ever, just the first project I did at RALLY.

    3. Yeah I can dial back the desperation, I really needed a job and the goal of this site was to get one and it worked soo... YAY!

    4. Results are that I got a job. It very clearly communicated my skills and my commitment to art and design on the web. Over 600 people have visited the page, which is a success in my book.

    Thanks again for your feedback and I'm glad that you liked it. I was surprised that it worked so well considering that I had to design and build it so quickly.

      I might be wrong, but I think the results Chad was inquiring about are results around the Epicurrence site, not your portfolio site. Do you have any data around the site that proves it was successful and helped the client? Hard data like that can be really persuasive in convincing employers that your designs don't just look good, but they also result in tangible business outcomes. It also communicates an attitude that you care enough about your client's goals to measure that sort of stuff.

        Yeah I think I can add more detail about the event. It sold out. So it was a success. I should be more clear in the portfolio that I developed the site, I didn't design it. That the design was a collaborative process with Ben doing most everything and I just seeing if is crazy ideas would work.

        Thanks for your feedback.
