UX Designer Portfolio Critique

    It's a very practical portfolio and gets the job done, and I love the color scheme.

    The code could be cleaner and the design could be more modern. You already seem to know HTML/CSS, but I suggest that you read up on HTML5 and semantic elements (header, nav, footer, main, etc), as well as CSS3. As far as the design goes, I suggest that you look at inspiration galleries to get an idea of what improvements can be made.

    The best thing to do is continuously iterate until you're happy with it - that will open you up to lots of learning. I wish you the best!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to go over my site! I'm definitely going to keep everything you said in mind as I continue to improve it. Thank you again!

        I'd also encourage you think about more about the typography, not the fonts but the way your type is laid out. I couldn't find any line-height declaration, anywhere on anything. That's important. For example, if you open the inspector in Chrome and on the body tag add "line-height: 1.5" you'll see how much nicer your portfolio detail page text looks and reads. :)

          Omg you are soooo right! Thank you Lance! I played with it in Sketch but totally forgot to translate it to code. Thank you once again! I really appreciate it!
