Hey Mapcore, my portfolio site has not seen a design update in about six years so I believe it to be about time. Before setting out to revamp it I would love some feedback from you guys both on the current design and as general comments about how portfolio design has evolved over the past years.

I have a few thoughts myself:

  • Get rid of splash screen. I don't think these were a good idea in 2006 and they still aren't.

  • Collapse level design, programming and art sections. None of the work I have done over the past years and expect to do in the future falls directly into any of those categories.

  • Add some kind of lightbox for all images. Those are pretty much considered mandatory these days, aye?

Makes sense?

What are you trying to show you can do with your portfolio then? It's hard to help you when you haven't told us what you want to do with it.

Solve problems is what I do. The resulting product (ie. solution) might touch upon one or more of the existing site categories but tend to be hard to place in just one of them. I prefer working with a holistic approach to a project instead of just having responsibility for some sub-section of it. So I would like the focus of my portfolio to be on the projects and what problem they solve instead of having the focus on what particular work areas and tools that was used in the process.

So you want to be an associate producer? I guess if you want to show how you've problem-solved parts of projects with your holistic approach you could do a writeup on specific things you've fixed, and maybe get some uuh....testimonies? (is that the right word?) from the people that were helped by your problem-solving skills.

I see that I one thing I need to improve at least is communicating what kind of positions I believe to be fit for, as associate producer is not exactly what I am going for. Not that I know entirely what title that suits me though imagineer or just consultant comes fairly close. But yeah more text describing my work or some testimonials might be a good idea. Thanks for the feedback!
