Jerryn Goodwin - Level Designer

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

Bit of a lurker here, looking for some crits on my portfolio and site. Any feedback, ideas, or improvements would be greatly appreciated.

Tried to keep the site clean, with easy navigation for mobile, tablet and desktop.

www.jerryngoodwin.com 

Thanks for any help!

Really nice site, I love it!

I would be tempted to remove "home" and make "Level Design" your 'home' page (unless you plan to add a blog or news style feed). I used to have a single image you had to click on to enter my site for way too long and the best advice is to let the user get right to the good stuff. If the site is a portfolio page primarily, that would be the Level Design section.

I'd also be tempted to remove the "Good Game" from the title, OR make it like "Good Game: Level Design by Jerryn Goodwin". I like it as a flourish and pun on your name, but on first glance it's kind of confusing. Either that or make the whole thing clickable. Seems like silly feedback and nitpicky, but that was my first impression.

Unfortunately it's nigh impossible to switch the home page with this template I'm using. I wanted to have it splash right to level design like you suggested, but I found out too late that it requires a template switch from squarespace, but I'll see what I can do regardless.

And I can see where you can get confused with the title, I'll try out some different text styles and formats to make it less confusing. 

Thanks for the feedback!

I really like the site, When I first opened up the site I was greeted by your Beauty shot which was amazing.
I looked at it for couple of seconds and then proceeded though your "Level design".

Nice big shots and I really liked the videos you also had for some of your scenes.

Great job with this portfolio! *Thumbs up*
