That's a rather quick lunch.
"Work in focused pomodoros for 30 - 50-minute sprints depending on the tasks at hand." Use any app for this?
Oh wow, for a first project it's more than great! :)
Hey, cool idea! Implementation leaves something to be desired, though.
I wish it wasn't all moving around so much, and that I didn't need so many clicks until I get to hear anything. Actually, going to "best new albums" doesn't even let me hear anything. Maybe take cues from http://foreignrap.com -- similar theme but the interface is not in your way.
Also, this is just too corny/white man: Screenshot
Other than that, good luck! I starred you on github, looking forward to new iterations.
I'm sure it's accidental, but I really thought I am looking at something sponsored by Snapchat.
Yes I did, but I only learned it after going through the trouble of watching the whole video. That's why I think it's a shame you don't show off those cool features right away.
The design is nice enough, however I am not sure I'd stop and try this based on the website alone. The advantages of your platform should be a bit more clear without having to play through a live-action video.
I also think you missed an opportunity to create a drag and drop feature in the hero section, and after that to try and onboard the user with the file they just uploaded and show a quick tutorial.
I have no doubt that your product is cool, I just think you've hidden it from your potential users.
In any case, good luck! :)
Thank you for this wonderful insight, Linkbait-Article-#32403-on-the-subject-of-eye-candy!
You have some really great work inside of that portfolio! However, the homepage is rather dull and a potential client might not dig further down.
Any more channels like this one by Mackenzie Child? Looks great.
