Hey guys,

I created a new portfolio site for myself: http://www.domdesignonline.de

Would be nice, if you can give me some feedback. What would you change? Do you like it?

Thank you :)

I’d probably darken the sidebar to be able to see the links, it’s really hard to read the links at the moment.

For the pictures, it would be nice to use the mouse “left & right” or scroll bar to navigate through the photos. The Left and right buttons too could use some darkening.

Other than that, it’s simple and effective :)

I like your layout, great job :) Although I’d change 2 things: 1. Gray font may be unreadable to some people due to similar color of background, 2. Are you able to make mouse scroll usable here? :)

The scroller arrows tend to blend in a lot. The sidebar links also blend in a lot too. (grey on grey = not that great for readability)

I love it!

Verry clean and minimalistic. I love dark style you use, and color choise too.

It’s awesome dude :) One thing maybe to add is to prevent user-select of the images.
