I am done with my portfolio

here is the link to my project:
That one’s trash. My new one is here:
if there is anything I need to change, please tell me.
thanks! :slight_smile:


Hey Conner! I think you did a pretty good job for a 13 year old! It was a pleasure reading about your little bio. You sure have an interesting background.

Looking at your project I would suggest finding a better background image. The one you have repeats but it doesn’t repeat seemlessly.

Try looking on this website for a nice background image that will repeat nicely: https://www.transparenttextures.com/

Also it looks like there’s no way to reverse the layout after you click the phone layout button, something to consider in the future as you work towards a responsive website.

Hi Conner!
You’re a lucky guy mate, say hello to your Mom, I wish I’d had mom like yours, and your head when I was 13 years old , I can’t help You with your project as I’ve got a massive two weeks of experience :v::wink:but for me you’re getting there. Just be consistent and You’ll have the future your Mom is wishing You’d have. All the best Mate. PS. Sorry for my English.

Thanks Mate!!
good luck coding!

Nice!!! Conner you are really on to something. I like your style!
You can improve the look of the page by centering vertically the “Projects” and “Contact” divs within their parent divs. Try flexbox on the parent div

.parent-container {
width: 100%;
height: 100%;
display: flex;
align-items: center;
justify-content: center;

You can also use the same background images but make them look more like a pattern when they are repeated. Just as the images of transparenttextures.com are. Make sense what I am saying?

I tried for the background and found some that fit the whole thing.

I would like it if your projects where a little more visable. as I scrolled your page I thought you had one project there, but you have a few. I think it would be best they wheren’t in a section you had to scroll independant of the page.

Definatly think it’s better then anything I did as a teenager though. But then Netscape and iframe / table layouts where still mainly a thing…

I tried to find some images, but I usually like to do dark designs with neon lights in the back. I got those and kinda made a pattern.

@ConnerOw1115 Another thing, the buttons on top of the page look best in mobile view and desktop in my opinion.

Yes, those images are great but they could be edited so that when they are repeated they look more like a pattern.

got 'em. the images now fit

the blue links in the contact sections are a little (I wanted to make that really tiny…hmm)…hard to read with the links being blue and a bluish background.

Maybe make the (unvisited) links lighter in the color blue or a different color.

I made them red. Hope you can see 'em better now.

Hi @ConnerOw1115
I was thinking, you have the “using a phone?” button, but normally we make the website responsive so that there is no need to ask the viewer if the device is a phone or a desktop. The website responds to the size of the screen automatically. Do you think the button is necessary? Just something to think about.

alright, fixed that. The page auto-adjusts if it’s using a phone or not

I love quirky designs. This is very nice. Great job.
