Design

looking for feedback

Good morning all, looking for some feedback, especially in the design and aesthetics of another project I have been working on.

Looks pretty good. One thing I did notice is the text under "My Web" is a bit difficult to read with it all being bold. I would recommend setting that text to a normal weight to make it easier to read.

I changed the font size, added a little more line spacing and letter spacing. You are right, it is easier to read now. Thanks Andy.

Not bad at all. I would recommend redoing the logo at the top and saving it as a transparent png file. It will make it blend better with the background color.

I would keep that logo consistent across all pages and lose the background on the projects page. It comes across way too busy for me.

A solid background like on the main page allows users to focus more on your content.

Keep it up :)

I like your site for the most part, I like that it is responsive too (viewed it on my phone before coming and seeing it on my computer). One thing though is in the phone view the footer isn't centered but pushed off to the right. You may want to make that more consistent too. That and also agreeing above again about the projects background being distracting from the content.

Thank you all for the wonderful feedback. I made some changes based on your suggestions. I removed the busy background from the projects page, fixed the footer issue on small screens and I am learning more about Photoshop and Illustrator to improve the logo. I think it looks much better. www.jasondangelo.com/personal
