I was skeptical, and expecting to see something with some vague similarity, but you're right, they are very similar indeed.
I do agree there are some unfortunate similarities. Samuel did an awesome job and I admit I was stuck on this project before seeing his and some other sites posted here. I was kinda hesitant submitting it here because of that, but I put so much work into every bit of it that I couldn't wait.
Fair enough, seems reasonable. Lot's of nice work in it so I guess it doesn't matter really!
Honestly, the card approach is a great UI pattern, and the light open aesthetics are very common. I don't think these similarities devalue your folio in any way.
Oh, boy. Im in love with the depth of the case studies, visuals and micro interactions. Whatever inspired or not by Samuel, just love both works
I thought the exact same thing. Other than that both site are amazing, i love case study pages.
Just came here to say that I'm a huge fan of the Octobox design. Cool to see some of your other work!
Those illustrations are great!
The site looks cool and I love how straight forward it is; more importantly, your work is good. However it feels somewhat boring and I wouldn't remember you or your site if I needed a designer 2 months from now.
Also, you could have images zoom automatically on larger screens. A lot of space is wasted and the details of your work get lost.
Really clean and direct home page. Also the thoroughness of the case studies is great!
