    Hi Hasan,

    Here are some quick thoughts:

    1. I found the initial introduction confusing:

    Hi A Toronto based digital marketer with a...

    This doesn't make grammatical sense and should be re-phrased to something like "Hi, I'm Hasan, A Toronto based digital marketer..."

    1. The logo appears blurry on my screen (a retina iMac), I'd recommend using an SVG instead to keep it sharp regardless of resolution.

    2. Visually, the spacing feels out of balance. The leading on the introduction paragraph is very spaced, but the general padding on the sections around it feel a too tight in contrast. I'd either tighten up the leading, or increase the overall spacing.

    3. On the individual projects on the "Portfolio" page, I would generally expect to be able to click the image to take me to the project. I'd consider wrapping them in a link.

    4. The following line includes a highlighted ampersand:

    latest design trends & learn new coding languages

    The ampersand looks like a link, as all your other links appear in the red highlight colour. What purpose does highlighting the ampersand serve? I'd also argue that using an ampersand mid-sentence like this feels a little off grammatically speaking.

    Hope this helps :)

    I feel like beyond placing people on plain coloured backgrounds, the results are really poor and in some cases, downright terrible. It's a cool idea though, I'm all for being able to generate images with the perfect copy space!

    Great article Weston! I am constantly frustrated by Figma's (and other design tools) wild inconsistencies when aligning type within a bounding box - it seems to vary dramatically from typeface-to-typeface.

    I'm glad to see some discussion around this pain point :)

    Exact same experience for me with both a 2015 iMac and 2015 MBP.

    It's always going to be tough to sell a product that is $10 on AliExpress for $80 - in general I think people are savvy enough to at least Google search the product you're selling.

    Agreed, 'Take My Money' makes for an off-putting first impression.

    This page still uses the old branding style - it's much easier on the eyes

    Love the guidelines around writing, very refreshing to see clichés like 'hustle' and 'take over the world' called out for the pap that they are.
