    I love this design, It's fantastic and breaks the mold of what's expected and accepted. The landing page absolutely fits the aesthetic that the app is designed in.

    If you take some time to play around with the landing page you'll notice lots of great details. Such as the animated text actually animates differently depending on your browser width. 4 or 5 different animations.

    So, I freelance, and I give out fixed bids, and I ALWAYS track my hours. It helps to gauge how much time I actually take to do things so that I can make better estimates.

    You're right, I need to work on the copy a lot to keep it from just describing what we did, but help to tell a story about why we did it.

    I've been making small changes to the portfolio to improve performance and to avoid visual distortions on larger screens, it should look much better now.

    Yeah I think I can add more detail about the event. It sold out. So it was a success. I should be more clear in the portfolio that I developed the site, I didn't design it. That the design was a collaborative process with Ben doing most everything and I just seeing if is crazy ideas would work.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Hey friend,

    1. Your feedback is SUPER helpful. Honestly the initial audience was people who already knew who I was, or that I sent an email to with a link, but this is kinda blowing up so I should probably introduce myself.

    2. Also I should do some editing to make it clear that this isn't my first project ever, just the first project I did at RALLY.

    3. Yeah I can dial back the desperation, I really needed a job and the goal of this site was to get one and it worked soo... YAY!

    4. Results are that I got a job. It very clearly communicated my skills and my commitment to art and design on the web. Over 600 people have visited the page, which is a success in my book.

    Thanks again for your feedback and I'm glad that you liked it. I was surprised that it worked so well considering that I had to design and build it so quickly.

    I mean, like I get that, but I think it's good enough on Chrome now. Web performance is very important to me. The whole thing was done in a rush over a weekend because I HAD to get a job, and I actually got a job because of it so... It worked.

    I also don't feel like I'm done with this page. More performance improvements and additional detail and interactive content related to the project are in the works. Keeping an up to date portfolio is super important, and I haven't tried it until now.

    I think that's as good as it will get in Chrome, Safari performance is fantastic though. Chromes blend modes are not as good yet.

    Thanks for looking at the page.

    i just pushed an update, check it out on Chrome, and Safari. It should be much faster now.

    Oh yeah it's the lighten diagonal bars on the text. I've got too many and they are too big. I just updated them so it's much faster on Chrome, I'd try it again. On Safari it's wicked fast though.

    Thanks so much for telling me, I literally had no idea about the chrome issue.
