    Almost as much as I'm tired of posts complaining about them.

    As long as you're not sharing clickbait then we're five by five. Keep sharing, don't let us haters bring you down ;).

    Haha "Log better.", brilliant!

    Anyways, excellent redesign, love the colour scheme and typography. There's just one thing regarding the bigger illustrations. They don't seem to be very crisp. I'm looking at them on a 4K monitor and they look blurry.

    Other than that, looks great :)

    As far as a personal site goes, I like it. I'm just not too sure what kind of feedback you're looking for?

    I guess if you're not trying to achieve anything in particular other than a personal site where you have a bit of fun then, good job you've done. And that is really all I can contribute to this. Which makes my comment kind of pointless.

    While it may seem to you that not a lot of designing actually went into this, I assure you I didn't just pick the first typeface that popped into my head.

    Currently there are four different type classes used on the site.

    • The h1 class has a weight of 600 (demi), is in uppercase, is 82px in size and has 10px of letter spacing. This is strictly used for the first heading on each page and only there.

    • The h2 class uses the same weight (600/demi), normal letter spacing and normal letter casing and is 40px in size. This is used as a title for each different section in either the projects or the home page.

    • The intro class has a weight of 400 (book) and is 32px in size. This is used as the introductory body text for some longer sections, or as standalone large copy.

    • And finally, the regular body text which has a weight of 400 (book) and is 26px in size. This is used for any regular copy on the website.

    Also I don't think that you might be wrong in this instance, it really is one of those things that'll come down to personal opinion. At the end of the day my goal was to make a simple portfolio that is easy to navigate and read. Personal opinions on design aside, I think I've achieved that goal. Anything beyond that is going to be a matter of preference. But please don't take this long ass comment as me trying to show you that you're wrong or anything like that, your feedback is 100% valid and I really appreciate it!

    Thank you so much for your honest feedback Cristian!

    I think when it comes to personal branding (or any other piece of branding really) it's always going to get mixed reviews. Personally I love the Futura PT typeface :)

    Thanks Jason. I love using Javascript, it's so much fun but I had absolutely no need for it on my portfolio and I'm pretty big on having reasons for doing what I do and not just throwing things in for the sake of it.

    No, everything is built from scratch. I was thinking about using Jekyll, but again I didn't really need to so I kept it as simple as possible.
