Portfolio feedback <3 [front-end developer]

1 month ago from , vincentorback.se

Hello DN! I’ve just launched a new version of my portfolio and would really love to hear what you think.

https://vincentorback.se

  • Is anything missing?
  • What do you think of the copy? (I’m not a native English speaker)
  • Is the colored background to dark? Does it feel to "colored"?

Anything at all is greatly appreciated!

        Thanks! someone had commented (as tm). Just wanted to say that it wasn't me. Removed the comment. Again, great site. :)

    Looks pretty good, however the gray boxes on the purple background look a little off. You might try changing --color-dark to #3c304e or something similar.

      Yeah thanks, looks much better. Hadn’t given the dark mode design as much love as I could have.

    It's minimal and straight forward. I agree with the feedback given by Christopher Chae. The call for action button will look better where you talk about yourself. Instead of cream color, I would have used white for bg, but it doesn't look bad. Overall good job! I am starting to design my portfolio too :D

    Hey Vincent! I think overall this site is a good, minimal way of presenting your work. I have a dev question: Why is the H1 split into multiple spans? Also, I like how your site reacts to dark mode, it shows you've really thought about the details which is really important for a designer or dev.

      It's an approach to provide truncation. A bit complicated, but solves the issue.

        Exactly. It’s something I picked up from Suit CSS and now I’m addicted. https://github.com/suitcss/utils-text/blob/master/lib/text.css

          my goodness, those !importants. So you are obsessed with text truncation?

            Well the !importants is not a problem when using this type of BEM technique. I really recommend working with Suit if your coding CSS with BEM.

            And yeah, I can get a bit obsessive with working out how to not get any orphans in text :)

              the !importants are completely useless if you follow the BEM Methodology, as these are basically self-contained utility classes and will not have to compete with other selectors of the same specificity. Add them las in your stylesheet and they will overrule whatever class selector, a result of following the BEM Methodology you have, because they share the same specificity but appear later in the stylesheet.

              An !important is very often a signal of mismanaged CSS and missing abstraction. A utility class, especially if it is something that will not be set constantly, does not need an !important.
