    The gradient here is too strong. Try this: 1. Set the font color. 2. In the layers style select gradient overlay 3. Set the blending mode to overlay 4. Play with the opacity

  • 2

    Just a thought: try and align the bottom of all text to the same level.

  • 3

    Align text "left" here. Headers and content. http://www.learntodoitright.com/2009/01/14/how-text-alignment-affects-online-readability/

    This feels out of place, try adding another column for these

  • 5

    Way to tight. Add room to breathe.

  • 6

    this is dull - this says "oh look at me, I am a boring man" - it needs to be "damn look how cool I am, you want me, YOU NEED me!"

  • 7

    ughh, where's the active state?

  • 8

    I am truly confused and why this font? I want to strangle the maker of this font!

  • 9

    centered text - this died out when the dinosaurs did

  • 10

    I thought it was 3DMax? is this a new version?

  • 11

    More spacing! Smaller width (maybe just half of the current size), then vertically align with the navigation links

  • 12

    Unreadable

  • 13

    Shadow is too strong

  • 14

    More space above and below this HR

  • 15

    More spacing

  • 16

    Smaller font size

  • 17

    lighter shade border

  • 18

    If you want to obtain freelance work, your name shouldn’t be hidden!

    Shadows feel too strong here

  • 2

    Try another layout style here. Feels like alot of wasted space on this page

  • 3

    Try giving these images a border to make them stand out a bit more. They seem to be blending into the background a bit here.

  • 4

    because you have so many different pieces in your portfolio you need an internal navigation structure, that enables people to navigate their way through your portolio

    shadows are too strong

  • 6

    Add more spacing between images. Maybe even just list 3 images instead of 4, then increase their height

    Add more breathing room here. Feels a little tight.

  • 2

    I love what you did here. Cool idea!

  • 3

    Alot of tension here. Add some more breathing room.

  • 4

    Really? I mean seriously why would I "shoot you an email" if I can use the above form, also the layout of your email address, if you don't want bots spamming it make it an image, don't use this format it looks unprofessional

    Try it without this graphic

    Try it without this graphic

  • 7

    increase line-height

  • 8

    increase spacing between items

  • 9

    wasted space on the sides, try if putting the items into 2 columns instead (form on the right, then contact info and social stuff on the left)

  • 10

    What is this?

  • 11

    You have this on your first page.
