Working on my portfolio. Trying to keep it simple. Any thoughts?
Nice, it is really simple. I think you can add a very subtle stroke on each thumbnail. I think it's a bit confusing if the image is very light and similar with the background. For example, you can find it in bigimg.it.
I think the image thumbnail should be straight. The thumbnail structure itself is using grid and its very nice. But the image is adding unnecessary lines and it creates conflict with the grid structure.
@mjeprie That's fair, thanks. I may just make sure the images don't have any light backgrounds to muddle in with the page's white background. Should solve it.
The rotation is a kind of a tossup. I get what you're saying, but, ultimately, I'm convinced straight images are just plain uninteresting. I'm aiming for somewhere between Instragam'd shots of extreme-angled monitors and boring 100% screengrabs. Mostly, though, I'm using the this as an excuse to play with CSS3 transformations and animations. We'll see. In the end, you may be right!
I love handwritten type on the web that is actually handwritten type, not some free kinda crappy handwritten font.
@chriscoyier Hahaha, me too. Pity to the person whose handwriting is Lobster.
Still unsure if my handwriting works with that Sans Serif. I need some typography nerds to tear it up.
