2018 Portfolio Launch — Happy New Year!

10 months ago from , ui/ux @ anagrama.com — mim.st

Hey there guys, super stoked to wrap up 2017, this year has been a huge transition period for me and I wanted to make something to celebrate.

I just "finished" my portfolio. Wanted to keep it clean and simple with minimal js.

Have a nice one and happy 2018!

    Really nice new folio Alejandro!

    A few tiny details: The © in the footer, and the text around, it, is super tiny. Ken already caught the "your's" typo, noticed that as well. Also, I think the Dribbble and LinkedIn links could use some spacing between them, they feel so smashed together. Also that link color (E3EFC9) the off-white yellow is hard to distinguish from the other text. I'm sure you picked that color for a reason, but perhaps staying consistent with other colors or using a more distinguishing yellow would be more effective.

    I love the LARGE hit-spaces for the portfolio items/navigation. Impossible to miss, and the hover effect is pleasant. I think the desktop/monitor view has the item titles and the right-aligned categories a bit far apart (but I see why, with the grid and all).

    Most importantly, the content. Each piece has TONS of high quality images, ideas, etc. Exactly what I would want to see. There are plenty of new ones in there that I hadn't seen before either, really enjoy looking through each one. Overall; holy cow you're on fire!

    The text is tiny with not enough contrast for these aging eyes.

    You've got a typo in the footer (should be yours not your's).

    Really nice, couple things. The portfolio detail layout is different than the homepage, when I clicked on the google project, I honestly thought I was redirected at first. I feel like a back button right underneath the one in the browser is a little silly. Also, I would put some sort of pagination or the project list at the bottom of each project, or maybe even a form to contact..would be nice if you had access to contact other than on the homepage. Nice work.

    You have some interesting projects. I like the way you showcase them.

    I would only point out that in the sections where the background is white, the header stays completely invisible (which got me lost for a few seconds there).

    Have a great 2018!

    Hey Alejandro!

    Overall, wonderfully simple and beautiful site. My only gripe is the hover states for your projects.

    Users tend to move their cursor where their eyes go, and by hovering over a project, I could no longer scan those items in the list since the rest of them faded back. It felt a little off-putting—I almost want to see a different hover treatment for these that keeps all of your items scannable while I'm browsing through.

    Keep up the good work!
