    Made a subtle change that - hopefully - helps the scrolling situation.

    No worries Tim.

    Its accidentally a little bit too much like a puzzle.

    I think that's the thing certain parts of the DN readership fail to get - it's not accidental. I could have easily opted for a grid of thumbs, or a list menu, but I was more interested in finding a visual pattern that I liked. Even at the expense of 'usability'. Also, solving puzzles can be fun.

    It's all good though - my sites have never been particularly well received on here - but I'm mostly doing them for myself.

    It's a very nice font.

    Really impressive folio for a student.

    One minor quibble that should be easy enough to fix up - there is a really obvious FOUT (flash of un-styled text) when the site loads. You could either use a bit of javascript to fix this, or at least use a sans-serif fallback in your css stack so the change isn't as obvious.

    (and you should probably pay for the typeface too, unless it really is called Font1)

    If you can't flash some bright pink onto a screen on your own website, where can you?

    Honestly - it's not that important. It breaks lots of UX rules - being a sensible, expected, well written account of my work wasn't really the point.

    Yeah - that's coming up a fair bit. Think I'm going to have to do something there. (I have an early comp where a massive red arrow appears if you haven't scrolled after a few seconds). Thanks for the feedback - appreciated.

    Not to nit pick, but one of those words you have circled for me isn't 'work'.
