I have been coding during this year and I am doing the Netflix clone right now. I got the basic logic, but when I start to think about some cool design I get lost. As this is going to be my main project of my portfolio, I want this to have a nice look. Basically I want some inspiration so I can do my own design, but I can’t find it. I’ve been practing, by coping some awesome designs on the web, but when I have to create one I am totally lost. Also, some critiques will be really helpful.
The are 3 main sections on the web right now.
The main one: http://filnfo.herokuapp.com/principal
A searcher (Only works from the nav-bar): http://filnfo.herokuapp.com/busqueda
A unique page for every movie: http://filnfo.herokuapp.com/pelicula/550
What I dont really like and I dont know how to design it is:
How the loaders are presented (the grey box that are there until the image loads)
When it redirects you to another section, it realods everything, should I refactor code so the menus dont reload?
The results are presented in a poor way, any idea? I like the columns and the image on top, but not the colors.
In the profile of each movie, in the background it will be there poster of the movie, but I dont like the frame nor the colors.
I ask this because I know my designs are not that good except when I take some inspiration on others.
I aim to get a some interviews this month, will this be enough to get the attention of some recruiters for a junior position on a full stack developer job? Or what do you think I should aim for?
Also say thanks to everyone in this community, its really incredible how helpful it can be, from the resources to the people that makes it.
