Feedback on my Personal Site?

Hey guys, I was wondering if it's okay to ask for critique on my site here?

If so, my site is http://dixondesign.me/ .

If not, just let me know and I'll take this discussion down!

I like it. It's got a certain "terminal" feel to it. The hover effects on the buttons are nice. The home button in the navigation is redundant, but not a big deal. I'd rather see button style consistency near the footer for twitter, behance, and reddit. I'd love to know more about you, like what country you live in, why you're studying web development, etc. The inline text links are too blended in and don't look like links until you hover on them. Need more line height on your title and subtitle on the home page.


I'm not quite sure how Line height works yet, I'm waiting for the video that goes in depth with that in the course, but I'm taking it easy so that I can learn some things that I may not know about html and css.

Also, I'll change the text links to a bit of a brighter color. Thanks for that tip.

I'll add a bit more info, maybe make that 'about me' into a bio sort of thing.

Thanks for the constructive criticism!

Try refreshing, let me know what you think.

Inline links are better now. The buttons at the bottom are still wacky, but acceptable if that fits your personality. And try setting the line-height on your H1 in your CSS to 70px or 1.5em.

Oh wow thanks! That looks much better!

Also, what is wrong with the buttons exactly? The reddit button is like that because I can't think of any other way to represent the colors of reddit xD (orangered is a great color but only in certain cases)

Ha, nothing's wrong with the buttons. If you want them to look like that, then they're perfect. The site should reflect your personality and taste.


By the way, do you know anyone that would perhaps like to work on a framework:?

  1. Its kinda too plain at the moment in my taste. As a fresh web designer You should try and show off as much skills that You have learned as You can.
  2. Whats the difference between Home and Dylan Dixon in top left and right corners? They both seem to lead to the homepage.
  3. "Change this website!" button seems a little off. I would work on positioning it a bit more as something is not right there in my opinion.


I will make it less plain when I learn more, I'm also making different websites as prototypes as well, doing little projects and all that. Maybe I'll use one of those as a baseline for my portfolio instead in the future.

There is no difference in the buttons. The 'Dylan Dixon' button is sort of just a placeholder until I get an actual logo.

The button is off because of the font I think. I'll work on that later, I'm not very good at picking out fonts.

Im not an expert haha, starting same as You. Still cant wait to create my first real site but not gonna do it until i have a better knowledge about JS, Jquery etc.

Anyway yeah, that button on bottom should get some more love. Nice site overall.

Thanks dude!
