    Hi all, I've been working on my portfolio over the break in preparation for the big ol' job hunt and would love some feedback! Thank you.

    Great work Megan! I love the simplicity of your site. Also, big fan of the site you made for Open Carry Austin.

    I LOVE the random notes project; makes me want to do the same. I think we have the same habits for using Notes...especially since I could understand all of them pretty well :P

        Same, I really loved that project and I was intrigued to go check out mine. Did you like take screenshots of every single note you wrote? How long did it take?

        kudos!

          Yep, just good ol' manual screenshotting on my phone. My home button on my phone was broken so I had to use assistive touch to screenshot...which quadrupled the time from 5 minutes to 20 minutes haha.

    Nice and clean!

    Since you mentioned you're on a job hunt I would recommend mentioning on the site what type of job/position you are looking for and that you're available for hire :)

      Doof - that makes complete sense. Thanks for the feedback, I'll be updating the copy.

      serious question: "I'm a product designer" doesn't help in that regard?

        Not really, since you might work as a freelancer and pick your own products/projects to work on or you're busy enough with currents project but just want to show your other finished work to the outside world.

        That last new added line of copy makes all the difference.

    Hi Megan,

    Loved how thorough you were with your case studies. Well done. My only piece of feedback would be to have some sort of next step for people to take once they get to the end of a case study, maybe how to contact you or view the next project. Right now it feels a little bit like a dead end.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers, R

      I see what you mean, it does seem rather abrupt I'll implement a list of all the other projects I have + a contact link. Thank you Ronnie!

    Clean portfolio. I looked through your first two case studies, but you do not go into what/how you use research & data to make the design decisions. I bring this up because you mention research & data in the main blurb on your homepage.

      Thanks for pointing that out Johnson - I'll include more detail in research and data to back up my decisions. It's a bit difficult now to retrieve the hard numbers since I lack access to those documents, but still worth honing in on.

        i dont think you need provide the hard numbers, especially if you mention NDAs. As long as you say something like "we performed research X, Y, and Z..." that should be good. I doubt any serious employers would demand to see the actual figures in your portfolio.

        The more realistic requirement is a general conversational level of explanation, "you mentioned you performed research to get to this. Can you talk more about what you did, and what you found out, and how that led you to make what you made?"
