The site is great, but there's some issues I see that I don't know if it's easy to translate into words. I'll give it my best shot:
The page feels impersonal, more as the site of a company / brand than an individual. Maybe more experimentation and less formality would help.
Although there's not a lot of content, the site is designed as if it would need to display a lot of content. Too many sections and page sections just make it overwhelming to navigate.
All this or I'm just tired.
It means you did not read some of Buckhouse https://medium.com/@buckhouse
Why EU only?
What the fuck? This site loads SUPER FAST!
What a joke!
This looks a lot like Principle, but integrated in Sketch. Something I wished the two companies do for a looong time!
Yeah. What is love?
Here you go:
The purpose of your work is to showcase your skills. While the mosaic gallery looks good visually, it's a pain towards this goal. Do not mix your best projects like this, make them readable. Suggestion: one large photo, title first, OUTSIDE and not on top of the images.
Clicking Contact it also opens a tab with mailto:email@example.com. Suggestion: this is your email and the expectation is to be taken to a Contact page with stuff like your social profiles, etc. If you plan to leave only your email than put that in the header so people know it's not a page. Be consistent - Contact is not like the other pages.
The down arrow better scroll down on click to the first project. The name better link to your email / Twitter / something.
It's not clear if you want to sell yourself or promote the agency. If it's you, it's best you don't sell yourself as part of the agency. If it's the agency, why do this site in the first place?
Sorry for the harsh feedback, but it's the best form towards actionable results.
