    Eagle Cool looks like it checks all the boxes, any reason you still use the other two alongside it?

    Not 100% sure where you're looking for feedback. Just the landing page, or is the product page yours too?

    Holistically, what are you trying to do with this site? Is this more for you to learn flexbox & css gradients and web animation, or are you trying to say something that the product page doesn't? To Oleg's point, I agree it fails to sell me as is. I also feel like the brand isn't very prominent other than the logo at the top. For example, I think you can learn a lot from the quote at the bottom of the product page for inspiration:

    "Crane products are designed for better living, specifically with your needs in mind. We’re focused on engineering products that you can always depend on to help you stay healthy, express your style and make your living space more comfortable."

    I'd reference every bit of the page with this quote. Ask yourself if the colors help express style and health, if the quote you're using makes the user comfortable, etc. Make sure every bit is on-brand.

    For small changes, figure out how to fix the margin at the bottom of the page. Also, I'd replace the underline :hover effect on your button with something a little more interesting. I think there's room to play around with the colors in the gradients. For how soft the quote screen is, they're a little harsh. Maybe a softer blue? Lastly, a sharper image of the humidifier wouldn't hurt, either!

    Sorry if this is long-winded, I totally get it's scary enough to post work online. Definitely keep improving and let us know where you take it next!

  • Posted to Any idea for a VERY simple time-tracker, Sep 19, 2017

    I didn't think I'd like using an actual timer, but I found Toggl to be quite handy. It's free to use, and the user portal is nice to break down how much I work on projects per week.

    Might have a little more than you're looking for, but give it a go!

    This is fantastic, awesome work! I love seeing illustration work on this site. Super inspiring stuff!

    I did something similar: 100 illustrations over 2016. You can check out some of my work here.

    I get a lot of newsletters and honestly end up archiving most of them, but the two I always make sure to glance at are Morning Reader and Sidebar.
