    Ah thanks, dude. Ah sure, I was lucky enough to get to work with an awesome team, including the bleedin' deadly Al Power.. Was a blast.

    Great feedback Surjith! I also have heard the same feedback from a friend of mine the other day. Definitely going to relook at this and implement it another way.

    The main aim is to help guide potential clients when they are reaching out about their project - guide them with a structured mail which will help me reply sooner with more accurate availability. Maybe the pre-populated email isn't the best option for that. I'll try brainstorm some more ideas!

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the feedback and complement James! Yourself and Markus are spot on - I did a bit of compression but nothing to a proper standard. Going to add it to my list and review those assets asap!

    Yeah, great point man! I did some basic optimization on the assets folder but nothing too detailed. I'll add that to my list and review all the assets and see what I can scale down and reduce! Thanks dude!

    Hey Faz! Thanks so much for your nice comments!

    Back when I did a lot of development work, I mainly used ExpressionEngine and during that time I heard a lot about Craft but never got a chance to jump in and try it out.

    Over the last couple of months, I decided to build a few sites with Craft over EE and so far I've just found it a little bit more lightweight, two seconds to create your content models, and just all-around fun to use. If I was going for something a lot heavier like an eCommerce site, I'd still pick EE because of my knowledge with the platform. But then again, I'm sure Craft could handle it.

    I've used foundation and custom scss on the front-end, which I love building out, so for me, any cms like Craft or EE is brilliant. Let me code up all my front-end and hook it up to the backend with some simple lines of code.

    I haven't used Wordpress or anything like that in 10+ years so I couldn't even comment on what that's like to work with nowadays.

    Craft is definitely work checking out.
