Looks very nice. I will feature you in one of my future "Websites of the week" series.
Thanks Alex, shoot me an email / tweet when it’s done! firstname.lastname@example.org / @lukejones.
Will do ;)
It is me or you have too many sections with email links?
One small suggestion: I would put titles above your displayed work and writing so it's a little more clear and consistent since you've already placed titles for 'about me' and 'everything else'.
Did you do the dev yourself? Is it built on something? Looks great!
This is really slick Luke; I like how succinct everything is. A bit of (unsolicited) feedback is: I'm not sure what the point of the 'Everything Else' section is, are these projects you've worked on that don't warrant a full case study? Whatever the case is, I would make them bigger and maybe add captions to give some context. It looks like some cool stuff but I can't really tell because some are tiny.
Looks nice. Thanks for making it quick/fast and avoiding the pitfalls like scrolljacking and gratuitous animations. :)
One suggestion — change the mailto: link on Say Hello. I think this falls under "personal opinion" territory, but I don't like mailto:'s because they spring open an e-mail instantly and it's an interruption of the experience. Also, I believe mailto: links are easier for bots/crawlers to harvest... so if you're not careful, you may inadvertently become a spam victim that way. I'm not sure exactly what the best way to handle a graceful contact page is these days, though... some people use a contact form, some people have a "Contact" page and then disallow nice bots to scrape it via a robots.txt file... just a thought.
Thanks! I don’t want you to think this is a knee jerk reaction / an excuse, but...
- I used
mailto:on purpose, as it allows people who do use it to click it and pop open their email editor no matter the device but also allows people to right-click or hold to copy it into the mail editor of choice.
- I think spam is a personal problem. Whether I get spam or not shouldn’t affect the person who uses the website. I want people to email me in the easiest way possible. If that’s spam then so be it! No need to obfuscate things for the sake of robots or my own convenience.

Looks good. Adding
-webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;would be super nice.
