    Wonderful news, and best of luck to them!

    Unsplash has been one of the true highlights of the past few years, and it's a site I use on an almost daily basis – excited to see where they go!

    This looks like an excellent use of $399, and worth the investment. Now to convince someone that this is a legitimate business expense..

    Looking good Sacha, always a fan of your work.

    Btw, the link to "How I designed Codeyear.com in under 1 Hour" (and the other 2) on your eBook page is broken.

    Overall it's great. I would be very proud if our agency's website was as slick and minimalist as this.

    I think that it does suffer from having too many ideas/styles in one design, and not enough consistency.

    I think a few details could be removed – for example when you click in the Nav, the Burger changes to a pixelated "X". This doesn't fit the rest of the style, or match the Dosis Typeface which is very rounded and modern.

    Sometimes links are rounded buttons with a fill, other times they are simply text with a dashed underline, on the Nav the links have no underline but are in a very light weight whereas on the case study the "Check the site" button is rounded with lower case text, and has no fill when you hover over it.

    For the title of each case study there is a box with the project dates within it, but due to it's shape and the inconsistency in link design as mentioned above, I'm not sure if this is meant to be a button or not (it isn't).

    I think you just need to bring in some consistency, keep animations consistent, button styles, header styles, etc.

    Case studies btw are amazing! Really well put together and great supporting imagery.

    Practice, practice, practice.

    Geisha often had their hands placed in freezing water when learning to play an instrument. This would result in numb hands and fingers. When they got stage fright during a live performance they would still be able to play perfectly.

    The same applies to presenting a pitch.

    If you know your subject matter, and you know your project through and through, then even with nerves you can use the autopilot to see you through.

    Not all Morally Questionable jobs are equal. This is important.

    Designing a website in support for a Church is not the same as designing a website for a homophobic company, or a neo-nazi organisation.

    I agree with this — there's a fair bit of naivety on this thread.
