    Not sure about the nav links - they actually move out of the way on hover which is a little frustrating.

      Get rid of this, and get rid of the hover effect on the iPhone screenshots too. They go up, but there's no more to reveal, and there's just space at the bottom. Looks messy.

      P.S.: Shout out to another person who uses their name as their domain name! Do you have communication problems explaining your URL to some people...? Some of my clients can't wrap their heads around edada.ms, it's gotten bad enough that I've bought an alternate domain with a more standard TLD. :(

        Ill reconsider the movement. There is some image under but I messed up on one image.

        As for my name url. Ya all the time. I might buy a newer domain like Jaime.rocks and have it forward.

          At least I'm not alone! Sucks though, that URL is so nice when written but it's nothing if not confusing when trying to explain it over the phone ("No, it's dot ms" "Okay, I've got edada.ms, now do I add .com?" "No... Erm...")!!

            I also have :Wolf face: emoji .tk but I will never use it for the same reasons.

      Thanks for your feedback! Ill take a look a this, for now I just reduced the movement to be a little more subtle.

      Can we also get some 'cursor: pointer;' up in here?

    Good stuff!

    Echoing what other have said about the nav, give that another look. Maybe just a bit more white space would help. And yeah, probably ditch or rework those :hover states.

    One other note would be the readability of #BFBFBF for some of your text. Especially when it falls on a light gray background (in those project blocks, for example).

    And kudos for having a style guide - great way to keep yourself honest. http://jaim.es/style

    Love the journal section :) Would love to do something similar on my site.

    Hey Jaime. Looks like http://palstakeaway.com/ doesn't have any styling applied, might want to check that out. Also, the scrollback when clicking 'Top' seems a little slow.

    Otherwise, nice work!

      Ha! It looks like he tried to change stuff after so he didn't have to pay. Ill contact him.

    Just a heads up, when you hover over the "Lyft Filters" iPhone, the bottom of the iPhone gets cut off and is missing as it moves up. The "Exploring 3D Touch" one just exposes more of the bottom of the iPhone on hover when it slides up (all on the home-page, that is). Also, you might want to check the same thing on all the projects on the "Projects" page. Some of them seem to do the same thing there.

    Note: I'm using Google Chrome on a Macbook Pro w/ El Capitan recently installed.

    text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; on .hometitle sorts out the terrible kerning.

    Hey all, this is my personal site. The goal is to give you a good idea about who I am. I focused on speed, visual consistency and responsiveness.

    Let me know what you think. Hoping to get some feedback.

    Thanks for looking!
