Well done! The only gripe I have is the text size. A bit too small for my taste :)
Good looking but confusing.
Might be rendering issues on my screen, but on a cinema display in Chrome the text is looking a bit fuzzy. Again, might be my machine, might be some weird subpixel stuff.
Other than that, really solid work man!
I'm using 3d CSS transforms to translate the text on hover. Because of that, webkit doesn't display it as vector, but as a bitmap texture to do hardware acceleration and the aliasing occurs. There are workarounds for this and I'm currently trying to find the best solution and implement it ASAP.
This is beautiful. Love the subtle background and animations. Everything feels right and balanced. Very impressed.
I agree with Ege that the personal section threw me off. I thought you were showing really old work at first.
Looks great, first thing i noticed, is be careful and consistent how you write your write-ups. At points you say, "I" and others you say "we"
Thanks. The reason why I'm mixing "I" and "we" is because I wanted to highlight which part of the process were more team-driven and which parts I worked on mostly by myself. Gonna take another look to make it read more consistent.
I totally hear you, but it's your portfolio, so you could always rewrite it like, "the team and I ..."
and that would keep it consistent.
Agreed, "we" is too ambiguous in most circumstances. You're assuming the reader knows who this we is. Apart from that, I really like the style and execution - some animations are slow on my iPhone 4ss, but that's probably my phone?
This is great. Very well done!
I think you need to differentiate the personal info section on the nav/homepage a bit. I thought your name was the name of a project because they are in the same list.
But that's the whole point? The first thing he designed was himself.
I agree. It caught me off-guard at first, but I like it. It's definitely unique. Plus, I think it's fits the vibe he's trying to give off.
Great work, Joris!
Like how the navigation and overall layout gives a good personal touch/feeling to the site. Good job
Why monospace font? It's harder to read paragraphs of text in this font, easier to read code. But this is paragraphs of text and not code, so I don't understand why not use a serif font. Especially because this is a design portfolio, it seems like that would be an easy decision.
Also, unless you are a baby, it would make sense to put a picture of yourself in your current state on the about page rather than a baby photo : )
the only thing i'd point out is that some of the animations don't work that well. but thats being very picky.
How do you manipulate the text, WebGL? It looks blurry at some sizes and sharp at others.
Yes. Like I said in a comment above, I'm using 3d transforms for performance reasons, which is why the aliasing occurs. Currently working on fixing that issue.
Good URL. Didn't even know that one existed.
Nice but kinda confusing to me. It takes some time to know how it works.
Great site Joris! Good use of animation and clean presentation of each project. I bumped up the size of the text one level for readibility (even though I like things small).
Are you using your portfolio to convey who you are or what your skills are? I'd say if it's the latter you might want to consider moving your about link to the end of the list; maybe with a different visual treatment.
But those are the only potential wrinkles I saw. Your site is visually compelling and consistent. A very nice experience!
My favorite part is how the menu/hamburger button flicks you off when you click it. :3
Also agree about making your personal section in the menu look a little different. My only other issue (and it's kind of a small one) is that once I've chosen a project - to go to another it felt kind of awkward to click the burger and wait for a few transitions, to select the next one. I kind of wish that once you select one project, there is a easier way to jump to others.
Really slick. Nice batman shirt btw
Domain is on point!
