    Hey folks,

    I'm working with a talented designer to redesign my portfolio. Please ignore the textual content as it is really just a placeholder - I will be refining things later.

    Please be as :smoker: harsh as you'd like - I believe criticism is a form of love.

    You can view the current mockup in the attachment or here:

    Thank you all for your time and comments, good or bad.

    -Jason

    Looks very professional. Just a few comments:
    1 Personally I would move the contact me information down / onto a different contact page and give the about me and what sets me apart more prominence - that is, make people want to contact you rather than wasting prime space on a contact form (albeit a very impressive looking contact form).
    2 I wasn't sure what the browser was - is this the same as the wall of fame?
    3 Rather than "Click here to download my resume", why don't you have a resume/about me page. To me, this would be more professional than having to download.
    That said, I agree with the previous poster that it looks very slick.

    Love the site design.

    I agree with previous comments about moving your points of difference and making them more prominent. Give people a reason to contact you, and then you can ask them to.

    Just on a personal note, I find white text on a black background can be difficult to read. Maybe a different font would help. Or maybe you could change the background colour in areas where you have more text so that you can use black text.

    Looks great

    I agree that white text on a black background can be a huge strain on the eyes, so I will be using off white and off black, and only a few sentences to reduce the stress.

    I am conflicted with the placement of text and contact form also now that you bring it up. It's a trade off between placing the modular blocks together, and showing the "selling features" before the form. Since the design is simple and to the point, I'm going to keep things were they are and hope visitors will find their way to the only chunks of text on the page.

    The browser area is going to interact with the larger portfolio viewer above - there will be a highlighted state for the active item.

    I'm going to make some headway on coding a refined version of the design and am looking forward to more comments. Thanks!

    -Jason
