  • Posted to My new portfolio website is out! Share your feedback., Dec 12, 2018

    My feedback is that your website is extremely good and there's nothing I'd change on it. Your work is awesome too. Nice.

  • Posted to I love this '80s inspired conference site, in reply to Steven Cavins , Dec 12, 2018

    Same. It seems like one of those sites where the designer wanted to design it like that before s/he had heard the brief. Mixed messages yo.

    I'm going to copy those naming conventions. Cheers for sharing. Also - Monzo kicks ass and the design/onboarding is fantastic.

    That's a pretty cool site. I like the design style too - pretty unique. I think you should put a max-width on the content though because it looks weirdly proportioned on a larger (20+) monitor

    Solid rant. I agree to be honest. It was pretty annoying when they removed the ability to send songs to people.

    That's so cool. I love seeing different use cases for AR. I think, because the technology is relatively new I have a difficult time thinking of innovative ways to use it, and stuff like this really helps.

  • Posted to I re-designed my site based on DN feedback and launched Failory 2.0, Dec 10, 2018

    Quick feedback:

    • I wouldn't join a community called failory because of the negative connotations
    • I wouldn't try and promote my startup on a website called failory, again because it sounds like the startup has failed
    • The site lacks hierarchy.
    • Try putting in a more traditional header with links instead of a 'tools'
    • Hitting me with a subscribe box before ive even seen your website content makes no sense. Why would i subscribe to something when i dont know what it is. Try putting it in the footer
    • Emojis add too much visual noise. Use some nice, cleaner icons and your hierarchy will improve.
    • To add hierarchy make your .heading-of-content-homepage around 32px
    • Remove either the cross and the tick emoji, or the red background and green background behind 'failed' and 'successful' as you're saying the same thing twice -I'd remove the 'sponsor us' button until you have more of a following. You say you're trying to build a community but having this button tells me you're trying to build a passive revenue stream for yourself
    • Use a slightly heavier font weight or make your paragraph copy whiter

    But yeah, the main one is hierarchy. It just seems like a random list with everything yelling at me at once. Sorry for any spelling/errors - i wrote this quickly as i was browsing your site

    Well that's how popular music works already. It's the same as design. A team of songwriters (designers) look at current trends and any data they can to make new songs (designs) - It's just going to get more and more granular as they get more details.

    It's all good though, most pop music has always been a bit shit. There will still be actual artists out there who create music based off feeling instead of analytics.
