Your Honest Opinion Please

Hi,

I recently graduated from college, so I’m trying to put myself out there for potential careers. I don’t know exactly what I want to do with my life though right now.
I know how to code but understand that Apps like Blocs are becoming more and more prevalent in terms of website design. Still, I went ahead and started working on my portfolio site.

Here is my Portfolio Website (still work in progress):

I also redesigned one of my development team sites a few years ago, however, time has not been kind to it and it has gotten severely cluttered. It needs a major clean up or possibly a full refresh:

Since I gotten home, I’ve been playing with Blocs a lot more but still haven’t even scratched the surface of what it can do. It’s still probably one of my most beloved mac apps ever.

Thanks for the feedback

I think there is a little too much animation. It doesn’t look very clean - particularly where you have blocks of text rolling above and below images.

Animation should really serve a purpose - to draw attention to items of importance. At the moment it just looks like you’ve added the animations just because they are available.

The basic styling is OK, but I think you need to work on “purpose” and “Objectives” a little more, but a good start.

You need to improve type working, hierarchies and visual rhythms so the site has its own personality.
Work with a grid, element sizes, margins, colors, types, there are a lot of variables you can work with. First I recommend you to make a design and then replicate it on blocs. You actually have the texts and paragraphs as the app drops them. Make sure every element looks like you want to look
