    Hi everyone,

    I'm in a situation, where I lost a major contract I had, and now need to try and acquire more work again. So basically, I need to make sure that I'm presenting myself as best as I can to increase my chances.

    Now, I may design a new portfolio site/page altogether... but for now, I figure I should just start with what I have... my current site.

    What I'm looking for right now, is just feedback on my design portfolio. Sometimes as the designer, it's easy to lose objectivity, and see things with the same fresh eyes that most others would see the work with.

    Which of the items on the following page should be taken out, if any. Which are weakening the overall strength rather than helping. Maybe you like them all, maybe you hate them all... or maybe I just need a bit of pruning.

    I'd rather have less quality over quantity.

    [EDIT: Link removed by TheGAME1264. It's already in the review section, so people will see it.]

    I appreciate you taking the time to offer feedback!

    Thanks Doug

    In your case, I wouldn't remove anything. Here's the reason...everything you do is creative. You're an artist. That means everything that you do is subjective and will be evaluated differently by everyone else. You also need to show as much experience as possible in your portfolio to differentiate it from the other pure designers. So you might as well leave everything in your portfolio as is.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Your site is very clean and simple. I like it, because you add descriptions to your portfolio items, giving them a little background information. the only thing that I might change is the link color in your navigation. Right now the link text is dark grey and your menu bar is black. I honestly didn't notice the menu items until I reviewed your site and found myself saying "where are the navigation links?" Then I found them. You might do something as simple as just making them white to give the most contrast to your menu.

    I like how you included a blog, but I would also include those social media links on the portfolio page as well, maybe at the top, so they aren't in the way. Overall, your site is nicely done, loads lightning fast, and you have a nice logo too. Good luck in finding some new work!
