    Hey Ethan great job with putting together your portfolio. Really digging some of your work, especially the branding for Google Go North.

    One suggestion for the experience of the site is to have a way to navigate between projects when you're on a project page. When someone reaches at the end of the project, it would be nice to have a way to easily navigate to the previous or next project oppose to going back to the homepage or clicking on the hamburger menu.

    In term of the presentation of the work, I would consider trying to make the thumbnails a little more consistent. I find when there's consistency in thumbnails, it shows attention to detail and strong visual skills. Something to think about is that the thumbnail doesn't necessarily need to show the entire work since it acts as a preview to the project itself. The goal of thumbnail for me is to entice the visitor to click on it and usually that means making it as visually appealing as possible while accurately representing the project.

    Lastly, I think there's some really good stuff in your Misc page but it's getting lost, especially on mobile. Your doodles are pretty awesome and I would consider making this page into 3D Doodles and showcasing more 3D work that relates to visual design.

    Again, great job Ethan and all the best with your last year of studies.

      I was going to make the same comment: "...have a way to navigate between projects when you're on a project page"

      Otherwise, this is a really nice site!
