    Regarding transparency I'm talking about the top colored section on the project-specific pages. That top section needs some more design attention. The use of color combined with the image doesn't feel right yet.

    Hey Alex! Good job! A few pieces of constructive criticism:

    -The site doesn't load right on Mac, FF Quantum. I just see a black screen and when I scroll down I see the Let's Talk section and image.

    -I like your use of black + colors—maybe use a solid color instead of transparency so the "weight" of the color more closely matches the black.

    -I like the transitions and hover effects.

    -Consider putting your avatar in a circle. The contrast will complement the other rectangles on the page.

    -There's a 20 px or so white line under the 4 projects. Is that an intended design element? It looks like a broken scroll bar. Consider removing.

    -Need a way to get back to the home page without using browser back arrows

    -The intro "I'm Alex…"is very pedestrian. "Maybe see what else you can come up with that grabs people's attention. All the words on a website are important.

    I also agree with what Brandon Zell said.

    Webflow is nice. I created my website in it. I don't use it as a design tool though—despite their marketing push touting "design in the browser." I still think it's easier to push pixels (or vectors, more accurately) around in a program like Sketch or Illustrator, then code it on Webflow.

  • Posted to 2018: What are the alternatives to After Effects for Interaction Design?, Jan 15, 2018

    I was thinking about the same thing. I've been collecting a list of different prototyping software. Here are some (that weren't already mentioned) that might be worth the look:

    -Flow

    -Flinto

    -Kite Compositor

    -Atomic

    And, if you want, here's the site I made just to keep track of all the various software coming out...

  • Posted to Webflow. Designer tool, or developer tool?, Feb 27, 2017

    As a designer I use it... I used it to build my portfolio website. Webflow is what Dreamweaver was supposed to be but never ended up executing well (in my opinion.)

    I have some developer friends who have used it but prefer their traditional avenues. I say it's more of a designer tool even though it has capabilities beyond what designers often are comfortable handling.

    Thanks for the compliment Tim! I've experimented with so many ways to execute my portfolio of the years…1 time I tried to do it by hand with CSS/HTML. That was really hard. • Another time I hired someone to build a custom WordPress theme, that wasn’t bad, but didn’t let me customize enough of the overall site when I wanted to improve things.

    I settled on a website builder that let me do it myself because I like the ability to change details over and over until I get it exactly the way I want it.
