    • Cases are insightful
    • Everything looks huge, I'd polish it up visually
    • I'd bring your work up and center, maybe instead of your photo
    • Saying you're 'Johnny' doesn't make you look like a professional, I'd put your first and last name there instead
    • Lego pics are a nice touch, but I'd show actual work instead
    • Dedicating space to 'accessibility' and 'front-end dev' create dissonance with UX Research – are you a researcher or are you a dev?

    Would love your take on my portfolio- brutal feedback is greatly appreciated.

    It looks like spam, to be honest. Why? Because I see offers and services like this every day and none of them provide a bio, links to social media (like social media where I can get a tiny fraction of you as a person, not github or linked in) or just a "who am I?" expanded paragraph.

    The messaging is very, very generic and has no content.

    I use UX research to solve problems and craft digital experiences

    Thats an empty statement. This is the equivalent of a fresh of university developer saying "I turn coffee into code", but this time it's from a person who's more into startup culture and economics, but still likes technology. You need a better paragraph that describes what you do, because from reading this it sounds like you don't really know yourself what you do, instead you just follow best practices from web industry personalities. And I don't think that is truly the case, it just reads that way to me.

    Visually I think someone has already said everything relevant at this point already. But I will add that the font size is just too big. It's very hard to read, even on mobile. And I'd reduce the left margin on the .section_work_work_body_wrapper Elements, or remove it completely.

    An advice for the CSS: If you set your line-heigh for paragraphs or headlines, it is in general a good practice to set it unitless instead of using rem.

    The colors are nice + I like the visuals in general.

    The case studies seem well done from a quick scan. Didn't really dig in to the content but I'd echo what other folks have said: everything is too big. Text that is a bit larger than average makes sense with the visual aesthetic you have going, but its current size makes the case studies borderline unreadable.

    One thing I noticed is that the contrast on pink/white sections is a bit low (3.7:1 by my check). It is probably a good idea to bump that up, especially if accessibility is something you focus on as a strength.

    Small copy thing: I don't think"case-study" or "ux-research" should be hyphenated.

      thank you, emily! Yes, I've come to grips with the fact that the font-size is too large. I'll refer to a smaller typescale. Perhaps some serif/sans-serif contrast for the headlines could help? what do you think? really appreciate you're digging into the contrast ratio. Was this on the homepage?

    It conveys to me that you like violent colour combos. I had a pretty hard time browsing due to the huge type scale and the vibrating colours. I'm looking at it on a fairly large monitor and it was a bit overpowering, couldn't concentrate on the content. I like the design, but some colour tweaks would go a long way.
