    This is 100X better than what your website looked like when you first posted it on DN! It's also great to see that you implemented a ton of the feedback you got.

    My critique: I wish there was a way for you to implement the "process book" of each project right onto the page so I don't have to click into another link to see how you got to where you ended up with the design of your websites. It just seems like an unnecessary extra step.

    Your about section is a page jump rather than an actual page. I'd either make the about section more personal and talk more about you or make another page with that detailed information.

    Good job dude!

    Hi Jay. Right off the bat, your website is lacking personal branding and uniqueness. I would customize your portfolio to give it some personal flair. Right now it looks like you're using a stock theme. For starters, I'd put your name in the header to let visitors know that they're looking at your portfolio.

    You're specializing in Interactive Design so maybe show that by making it so when a visitor's mouse hovers over a project's thumbnail, some cool animation happens. Also, as a UX note, when I wanted to view a website/project you worked on, my first instinct was to click on the project thumbnail as opposed to the text beneath it. Maybe make both the image and title link to the project?

    On the projects themselves, you should have some sort of description that explains what the project was for, what were some issues you encountered and how did you fix them with your design decisions. Basically let the visitor see how you think.

    Are the websites you design mobile friendly? If so, you should figure out a way to show that (maybe make a simple mockup on an iPhone).

    I know working on a portfolio can be very time consuming and tough but you want to make sure it's the best it can be so that when you're looking for a job or a new client, you're showing them all you got! I would encourage you to take a look at other web designer's portfolios and see how they do theirs and go from there.

    Good luck with your portfolio review class!

    I use Keynote all the time and have never thought to use it like this. Thank you!

    I haven't been invited yet : ( but I still use it for inspiration for my upcoming projects and to just get a feel for what the community is doing. Love those buckets!

    Ive been using the Notes app by Apple since they now have checkboxes. Nothing advance but gets the job done for me.

    I think it's time for a report button.

    Would it have been too much to include a clickable link to the instagram profiles?

    Magic mouse. Nothing special.
