    I count 4 different line styles, just on the home page... ironically, they didn't know where to draw the line (sorry). Only thing I like is the mobile view.

    True. I've been looking into the CMS Cargo Collective 2. Pretty flexible (and no code).

    Also, what about content? I'm slightly more worried about the best way to show my UX work, a consistent way to display UI work and its endless device views, and navigating the minefield of ways to write (coherently) about the thought process of a project. The amount of detail @Tregg Frank goes into per-project is impressive, and to do that across all projects must of taken forever.

    If I rephrase the question - What do you think is the best way to document your work and the finished result in a portfolio format?

    Nice! Super comprehensive. Really get a feel of the depth you go into. Hard to show and nice to see.

    Out of interest, how long did it take you to make or update? I need to update my portfolio, but worried its going to take SOOO long to do. Be interested to hear about how to tackled it while in work or on your weekends etc.

    "Graduating" would imply you're moving up to a more advanced level. For me, I'm not sure Android is more advanced. Advanced means different things to different people. With a device that I use every day, it means being efficient and easy to use.

    I actually want to move off iOS, sick of Apple and their monopoly on the market. But Android just doesn't cut it for me... yet.

  • Posted to What do you think of subtle design changes over a complete re-design?, Oct 10, 2017

    Subtle design changes are certainly easier to ship and learn from!!!

    Yer, I'm with you. iOS 11 is all over the place in terms of UX consistency. Super annoying to deal with across devices, little less so across apps (but still annoying). But I'm just not convinced Android has enough switching power to convert me. Maybe I'm just stuck in my ways, but iOS still looks good enough to stay with (for now).

    I like the design. Looks "different", and thats what Google go for. But my biggest issue is Android. I just prefer iOS. Not an Apple worshiper or anything, quite simply - its just much easier to use.

    Whats with all the beef?!? Progressive, bold, clean, considered. Least its not another site with neon fades and "nice" illustrations that make every product look the same. Theres so many product home page trends, its nice to see someone has thought outside the (drop) box. Sorry
