    One thing I noticed that the background colour is off on my screen

    The grey video background is #e3e2e3 where as the site background is #e6e6e6

    Also a slight difference in the bottom lighter colour #f7f5f7 and #f7f7f9

      Thanks Simon!

      I struggled with this since it seems to be something related to monitor color profiles. I tried to color pick the correct color on 3 different monitors but it's slightly different for each. Plus on top of that the video file needs to be compressed a bit so color is slightly shifted as well.

      I've read a few things around using Canvas tag to do actual transparency which might be a better bet.

      Open to any suggestions or links people have around the topic!

        I've had this issue working with video as well. What I did find was using absolute white and absolute black was web-safe.

    Hey Tareq,

    This is a great example of how a UX portfolio should be. Clean and simple with great intro copy - makes you look human.

    Enjoyed reading your case studies.

    I also like your intro in your 'writing' section. Again makes you look human.

    First impression from your site is that you seem to be a great guy to work with - humble and down to earth.

    I'd hire you ;)

      Wow, that's really kind of you to say Adrian!

      Really appreciate you going into detail in your feedback. Trying to make the site 'feel' human was really important to me as many failed attempts to redesign my portfolio came off too "show-off"y and just didn't feel like my goofy self. So I told myself to be me and show more of me (which was terrifying too since I don't like photos of myself).

      So your feedback goes a long way since I really felt I put real self out there. Thank you!

    Hi Ismail,

    Great website

    You have a small typo:"AI, and data visualziations, " https://pasteboard.co/HkHayCB.png

    Also I find it weird that you don't have an identity/logo/visual element (it feels weird especially when you are on project page:https://pasteboard.co/HkHcfi4.png)

    Have you thought adding some contact links in the footer?

      Thanks Alex! Super helpful.

      (1) Good catch with the typo. Fixed!

      (2) Good point with the logo. I had a few iterations but didn't like any of them. Felt too forced. Good thing to consider, especially if people come to my site directly from a blog post.

      (3) Contact in footer is a great idea and something I'll definitely add soon.

      Thanks again!
