    Hey DN,

    Have been slowly working on the latest version of my site for the past few months now, and would love to get some feedback on anything and everything.

      There are some pretty startling similarities between your site and mine. I ask that you take a look at both and ask yourself how original it is. Either way, no hard feelings :)

        Your site is super pretty!

        Definitely see what you mean though, especially the main tagline on the site and the vertical text.

        I guess I'm not really seeing it? Both look similar to many portfolio sites. Yours stands out because of interesting color and aesthetics, but I wouldn't really suggest a lack of originality or copying when it comes to layout or structure or copy.

        The main similarity is the bluish primary text I guess?

          Yeah nothing crazy. Just the Vertical GT Pressura, Similar header motion, and color treatments.

          I only bring this up because as an early designer, a design of mine was very similar to a well known portfolio, and I was accused of ripping it off. I had never seen it before, so I of course want to give the benefit of the doubt to others :)

    Maybe indicate better on the stream what are projects and what are blog posts?

    I can see you're going towards a stylish approach more than an informative one — if you're not actively job hunting I guess it doesn't matter much :)

      That's an interesting point. I really wanted to keep the articles and projects together in a single stream. I think I might take a look at some iconography to better mark the distinction between the two.

    All great, but © 2016 Twitter?

    Maybe you can amp up the grey boxes, it's difficult to read with the white text. And add pictures... i'm not going to read everything ;-)
