  • Posted to What do you guys think of my portfolio?, May 20, 2019

    I think the rollover colour change on your intro h2 tags is a bit unnecessary, as it had me wondering if they should be hyperlinking to portfolio stuff. I'd also add some 'about me' text content, in case someone viewing it is unable to run your video for any reason.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of using the portfolio to just aggregate medium articles - it's probably better to create some bespoke pages within your own site to host that content, it is your portfolio after all.

    The look, feel, and general user experience is pretty smooth however! Nice work.

    Nah, I found being horrifically obtuse to their comments and posts works more effectively :) I've had them go through and downvote my shit en masse after tearing apart some blogspam posts etc, it's much clearer to see when you ruffle their feathers...

  • Posted to Ask DN: How important is reading as a creative person?, May 20, 2019

    I believe reading is very crucial to fuel one's creativity.

    That's like, just your opinion, man.

    I feel the premise of this is a bit too black-and-white. It's not crucial to fuel your creativity, but it does help certain designers. Other people find creativity via the screen, others through music, some through being active in their world, some merely through conversing with their peers.

    Personally I love reading when I have the time, of course.

    Not sure what the Illustrator team is smoking that makes them think any of those things are acceptable in a vector environment.

    You're being melodramatic. Illustrator had led the pack for decades before being overtaken in only relatively recently in terms of features, size limits, etc. Because they're a massive corporate Adobe have been very slow to respond to the landscape changing, but I think that comments like this are too full of the webApp cool aid and intentionally forgets that enterprise software takes a lot of time to build as opposed to small teams making very focused software that can react to changes in a fairly agile manner.
