    This has all the ingredients of something I'd hate yet for some reason I love it. Nice.

    I don't get when designers and developers have someone else design their site for them.

      I think it depends on the type of designer to be entirely honest.

      Like checking out his work, it's super clear animations are what a team would use him for.

      Checking his twitter etc seems like he's an intern. I think him focusing on animation can't hurt, and the site being so bare bones outside of animations are likely intentional here.

        Haha, the intern thing is an inside joke. 2 years after my internship, some of my colleagues never stopped referring to me as 'intern' and so I was named Head of Interns. Animations are intentional indeed ;)

    nice! lately i've also been specialising in developing highly animated interactive websites too.

    it looks more like a designers portfolio than a frontender's portfolio, since in the work pages there's only static images. I think videos of the websites would showcase your skills much better. for example, Mariah or Messiah is a really cool project with smooth animations and nice interactions, but that's not showcased in your portfolio.

    ps: nice easter egg in the console ;)

      Videos is something I'll probably be adding somewhere down the line. It'll require some refactoring and will give me the time to properly improve some parts of the site. Thanks!

    Solid portfolio. Took me a second to get to grips with the UI but no complaints here.

    Ugh, there's just no need for the typography to be so big.

    Love the website as well. A few things that I do think could do better. 1. Background color. Of course ,it is a very subjective thing. Not a big fan of black. 2. The portfolios could have animations/gifs showing the real magic of what you actually did. Even after I read you are a front end dev, when I was going through the portfolio pages, somehow I wanted to think that you are a designer and you may have designed these pages.

    great balance of flexing and restraint, love how extra the interactions are and everything is laid out nicely. one feedback (purely stylistic / preference) is im not the biggest fan of the project title hover effect. the transparent-text-with-thin-white-outline trope is just a bit outdated and puts it slightly over the edge between cool and cheesy. i think if you kept the project text white on hover it would look much better

    That animated intro was hard to read. Difficult to read moving type. The rest of the type setting on the site is quite good.

    Also, the e-mail opens up a mailto: in a new tab, why?
