I'm interviewing for a couple of jobs right now and needed to get my portfolio online. It's the first gen and I plan on doing more design elements to the page, but any suggestions on design and the work that's up? Are there some samples that hurt the presentation? Anything that seems sparse or more of one medium that needs more examples?

Thanks for your time.

The gears make the front page dynamic & cohesive quite nicely. The light bulb could be brighter. "Knowhow" is one word.

colors might be wrong for the site - don't use brown. It's depressing and it gives a stale atmosphere. Try using watery colors and very minimalistic design. Look for what's IN at this moment - see what leading website in your business are making. There is a fashion in web designing also.

I don't mind the colors...on my monitor, it looks more like marbelized pink than brown.

Anyway, it's nice, but the front page kills it for me. It might look okay on an 800x600 monitor, but with a higher resolution, the whole thing is aligned off to the left, and the top and bottom framing graphics look like they're just sort of floating there in a sea of white, extraneous to the content they surround. I'd suggest putting a bounding box around the whole thing and centering it, or else making it graphically similar to the rest of the pages, which are arranged quite nicely.

I noticed you have no Flash content up yet, but when you do, perhaps you could also integrate a bit of Flash into the main content as well...a few buttons, perhaps...nothing that would take too long to load.

Updated and revised.

Thanks for the original feedback. Let me know what you think of the second version if you've got some time.

Don't mention being lazy or even make mention of a "client"s fault.  There is no reason for that http://www.ideaity.com/flash.htm page.
