    Default My new portfolio site...

    Just recently finished up my portfolio website and would love some comments if anyone wants to check it out.

    http://www.iconoclast-design.com

    Any constructive criticism is welcome, of course.

    Nice, Cereth. I'd sharpen the typewriter text a bit - it's so blurry I want to adjust my glasses :-).

    You're bucking the usual rule of thumb for web design, being to put some of your important stuff 'above the fold' i.e. before one has to scroll down -- but it works OK, because the whole page is as much an example of your design work as the maps are.

    It's nicely laid out: it has a fairly simple user interface. I also like the sort of "Old Tattered" look of the site. Very nice man!

    Cheers,

    looks good, Perhaps I'd like some bigger/clearer thumbs to help getting people to WANT to click on them - and I'd remove the references to "friends" on what the logos are for

    I second this. But your maps are awesome!

    Cool...thanks for all the tips.

    Was trying to make the "typewriter" text look old and like it had bled into the paper. Maybe I went too far with it. I can easily sharpen it up a bit.

    Looks good-

    I appreciate that all the information is accessible with javascript turned off, as well!

    (Though the scaled maps are just teasers - I really want to see more detail )

    It's clean, but we must scroll down a lot to see the pictures at the bottom. I don't know if it would be a good idea to put them both side?
