    Nice work. I’ve taken the liberty of minimally editing your About section so that it looks like something a native speaker might write:

    I’m a 26 years old designer who like to work with hyperlink, slider or dropdown menu. These past months, I mainly worked on Collect.io as a side project and Dartagnan at Bmobile. I’ve worked in different design fields from webdesign to motion design and mainly in small agency. I’m focused on giving the easiest experience to the user on all of his devices. I like to research and organise the results to create wireframes and prototypes.

    In my path to greatest adventure, I'm looking for a fulltime designer job in an agency with an awesome team, where I will fulfil my appetite from design through challenging projects in North America.

    I'm one of those who think that designer should code, not actually do the developpement but at least understand how everything works. That's why I'm developping my front end skills. I have also some 3D design knowledge that I want to improve because, you know, VR is coming.

    When I’m not lurking on Reddit, I enjoy watching movies like Fast and Furious, not getting any better at Hearthstone, doing sports like Badminton, double mainly, and other stuffs.

        Powers Gray offered a correction that might seem weird to a non-native speaker so I thought it might be helpful to get an explanation.

        English doesn't have a non-gendered singular pronoun. You refer to people as either "he," or "she." People have historically defaulted to the masculine pronoun, but there's a movement to eliminate this.

        The easiest way to eliminate the gendered pronoun is to do what Powers suggested and replace it with "they," or "their." This is technically grammatically incorrect, since you're talking about a single nongendered subject, but it's a very natural thing that native speakers do all the time.

        I personally try to rewrite sentences such that you avoid the quirk altogether: "I'm focused on giving the easiest experience to every user on every device," or some such thing. This is probably one of the more difficult quirks of English right now, but it's good to be aware of because some people (including clients/employers!) care very passionately about it.

        Sweet portfolio!

    Hey, just wanted to let you know, I was easily able to gain access to the private project. I'm not sure if you have an NDA or whatever, but anyone can gain access to it. The password is actually right in a javascript file which is very public. I honestly don't have a good solution for fixing it or if you care that much to even fix it. But your site looks great. I'm jealous

    Awesome work man! Love everything about it. The only thing I think can be improved upon is having real links set up so back/forward browser buttons work as well as linking to specific parts of your portfolio.

      This is my main critique as well.

      The UX of browsing your portfolio is completely undermined when I try to go back, and end up unintentionally leaving your website. (Forcing me to start all over if I decide to go back.)

      Using the HTML5 History API is an easy and simple fix to this.

    overflow-x: hidden; Unwanted (I assume) horizontal scroll

    Great work! Here are my 2 cents:

    • On mobile the "x" at the end of Gervaix is not showing (i'm on a nexus 5) ;
    • On a 13" macbook when I click on the "about" button it looks like nothing happened (the content is loaded below the fold). Maybe it could be a good idea to scroll the about section into view with JS ;
    • Allow Gzip compression to make your website load even faster.

    I like your style, you'll become a great designer!

    Really dig the simplicity of your website, great job! However I find the animation on your landing page to be a little bit too long.. it gets annoying when you have to see it each time. Also a side note, your private "project" is not that secure, it's very easy to gain access to it, I would secure it in a different way than you have now.

    To be honest, I really didn't like your website because yours is much better than mine :( Jokes aside, very pleasing to play around your site. Great job :)

    Absolutely love it. Clean, straightforward and fun. You really nailed the interaction side of things and transitions.

    Wow. Amazing work! I love the interactions once you click on about us and the transition you click on one of the project boxes.

    I think you have nailed it! You have a new twitter follower :)

    I have couple of questions. Whats your tech stack? Did you develop this yourself? If so will you be making a 'behind the scenes' of how you made the portfolio?

    I also noticed some minor spelling mistakes in your 'about me' section. (developpement)

    This looks pretty cool, however I do have some suggestions:

    • the hover effect on your portfolio items cuts out immediately after your cursor exits it, and this is fine, but it does make me feel like I have to be careful with it, like I have to put some effort into staying without those lines. Consider adding some 10/20 pixels of padding and make that area the trigger hover. This way, the entire section would feel more tolerant and people would be more at ease exploring.

    • speaking of the hover effect, it's weird that the illustrations (which look cool by the way) are animated and have an easing, while the text just snaps to a new place. Try animating both.

    • the X on the about me page is not centred Image title

    • the transition in between projects runs like shit in Safari (try using transform).

    • your resume feels messy, and I think moving those dribbble/twitter links someplace else would go a long way towards de-cluttering the top section.

    Otherwise, your work looks amazing and the site is uniquely interesting, so nicely done.
