Here is my portfolio amitbassi.com

I’m coming at this from a San Francisco, CA bay area perspective.

When the home page first loaded I wasn’t totally clear what you did. “Design businesses, design services, make digital products work, etc.” I couldn’t put you in the bucket of a UX Designer so I would be confused as a hiring manager.

I was confused why you have Behance on the main nav and when I click Portfolio it goes to Behance. I thought I was on your portfolio so that was confusing.

There is a lot on the “homepage” so it felt a bit overwhelming.

I like that you don’t have more than 6 case studies, but the filters don’t seem necessary for only six projects.

For Contact, I would remove the form. No one ever fills those out. As long as you have your email and LinkedIn that’s probably fine.

I was confused how to get to the Case Studies themselves. I thought if I clicked anywhere in the box it would take me to the case study, but it opened a larger image of the thumbnail. Also, hover states don’t work on mobile…

Then the actual case studies have hardly any information. You are not walking me through your process so it’s not enough information for me to want to call you in for an interview. I expect much more information in the case studies.

Hope that helps!

Thank you very much @jdebari for you valuable time and feedback :hugs:

Welcome to the community @bjewell!

@Alberto, overall, I think your portfolio is fine. I really like your About Page. For your contact page, I recommend just your email and social handles that you want to share. No one likes to fill out those contact forms. :grinning:

A few suggestions to up your portfolio game would be to not to include the design process diagram. It makes you look junior. Then try to tell more of a story and not just list the titles of the design process for each section. As a hiring manager I want to know why you made the decisions you did. Not just what you did, but why.

Hope that helps!

Hoping some other people chime in here. :grinning:

Here are some portfolios I recommend people review.
