    Great work. Love the action of your carousel/slider. Is that custom?

    Edit - nm. found it - looks like : http://flickity.metafizzy.co/

        Nice! Michell. I actually find having to click or drag the work carousel frustrating. Those types of interactions–in my mind–are more of a commitment than scrolling. For me, It's a non-starter which leads me to leave your website.

        Any thoughts around displaying the thumbnails the way you have it, but allow scrolling to control the cycling? That could be more intuitive and natural.

          I came here to say the same thing as Mike. A user is already scrolling, that easy-scrolling experience is then interrupted by needing to move around and click the slider the make it advance.

          Thanks for the feedback. I know, it kind of breaks the momentum of the user. Update will come! :)

            cool, if your going to keep that layout for mobile-maybe reserve dragging for mobile? In my opinion - dragging doesn't serve a purpose for this design pattern, on desktop.

              True, true. I skipped it all together on mobile tho. I need to pan out a new fun idea for desktop instead of just listing up a grid. I think.

    Although I like the visuals, I wonder if you are providing enough information to help hiring managers and recruiters form a decent understanding of you.

    Why have you decided not to provide any text to support the images?

      Thanks for the feedback!

      The only text I have provided in the cases is the intro text about the client and in short what my role was. And a small text snippet on each image of what you are looking at.

      Your suggestion is to add more text explaining about each image?

        It's all great looking stuff, but VERY short on details, and you show just a handful of visual examples.

        You could benefit to expand a bit more on what was involved in the design/dev process.

    Hey Michell,

    I'm pretty sure we went to the same school back in Trollhattan!

    I think it's a great looking website. Typography on point. The animations are sensible and ties the whole thing together nicely. Well done!

    Hi Michell. Your portfolio is looking great! The typography is well thought out, the colours are harmonious and it looks beautiful on mobile. I agree with the other comments on the carousel however, I have no idea what the last project is due to having difficultly scrolling to it. Perhaps an arrow button would help? But even better would just to have all the projects listed on the page as it's far less effort for someone to dig through your work that way. Also on your about page I would remove your age as I don't think that's relevant to getting a job. On your downloadable resume I would also go into more detail about your role at each company as I have no idea what level your skills or responsibilities are. Hope that helps :)

    I would definitely fix the navigation since it overlaps content when you scroll. Also, I would consider re-thinking the experience of the landing page. I see the "Hi I'm Michell" text but then the rest of the page is below the fold and it's not clear there is more content below. I agree with other comments about the carousel. I thought clicking the next item would scroll it into view, but I guess it is a select-hold-swipe? I would rethink this interaction, it doesn't feel like a natural experience and it limits you to a max amount of items. Thanks for posting, I know it's not easy to put your work out there, but I hope this helps! Best of luck :)

      Thanks, yeah the landing page is a bit off. As for the carousel, I will consider changing it due to the comments highlighting my own issues with it. :)

    A few things I noted:

    • Annoying that I couldn't swipe on the projects, but had to click on relatively small circles to see them. Even just having them below each other seems like it would be advantageous.

    • Not being able to click anywhere on the project box to view it threw me off. Why limit the user to clicking on the text to see the project.

    • Navigation is effectively hidden when scrolled to the bottom since it overlays the heading and is no longer legible.

    • Having a picture of yourself on the 'profile' page would IMO make it much more personable, it comes off a bit generic when I'm not able to imagine the person behind it.

    Thought: Ditch the carousel and make it swipe-horizontal-scroll for clients which support it (MacOS etc) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19877924/what-is-the-list-of-possible-values-for-navigator-platform-as-of-today
