    I've been working in the IT field for the last 5 years but have been active in freelance and side projects and am looking to get back into the creative field. It took me a while but I finally put up a pretty basic online portfolio and am looking for feedback.

    This may not be the best place to receive feedback but figured I'd give it a shot.


    It is pretty basic but feedback and suggestions are appreciated.

    I'm no expert in creative portfolios or anything, but it looks really nice to me. The only suggestion I'd have would be maybe a little more history on the "about" page just to give it that personal edge. But I think aesthetically it's very nice, and it puts your work up front to be seen. Good job!

    Personally i would use squarespace. Your content is ok but you need to flesh it out into case studies. You will see what i mean when you go to squarespace. Your content is great it just looks alittle old school flash. Fine if thats the look your going for.

    Yeah I'm still updating the overall layout. It's pretty barebones at this point but I'll check out some of the portfolio sites they have at squarespace.

    Definitely looking to get into the UI/UX field so I'm working on content to upload.

    First impressions: Simple and elegant. Great. A slight personal nitpick is that I would perhaps make each "role:" "work:" etc. a bit more prominent, bold or italicized perhaps?

    More importantly - you might want to consider ways to make the "contact" link stand out more. Perhaps add a call-to-action button to the top right of the page. Having to scroll down so much and then find a tiny link in the footer to get in touch does not seem ideal.
