    I agree that it's juvenile, if you've written the copy on your site to appeal to the sorts of brands and companies you'd like to work with then that's fine, but I aspire to work with the kinds of companies that would find swearing juvenile, and that's not just 'boring banks' and the like, it's pretty much every successful company.

    While I might swear as much as the next sailor, I wouldn't dream of swearing while in a client meeting, if that's 'just who I am' or otherwise.

    Your straight faced honesty regarding the whole tone is admirable, but you should appreciate good advice.

      You're right Dan. That's the reason why I wrote the copy on the website.

      I'd never swear while in a client meeting because I know that people might feel offensive, and I usually don't curse at work, but this is different, we're talking about my own personal website which is my own space to express myself, and I believe I didn't offense anyone by what I wrote on it, it's just my casual way of talking. I am fed up with all the normal designer's portfolio's/websites, I wanted something different and honest, something with a bit more emotions, and cursing is part of that.

      Of course I appreciate feedback, and I love reading it because it helps me improve everything I do, but it has to be constructive, people here were talking to me like I've killed someone in their family!

      If my tone in the website sounds offensive to you or to anyone I apologies, although I'm pretty sure it's not.

        It's nicely designed.

        Although viewing it on my portrait screen messes with the whitespace and results in massive gaps between sections.

          Could you please share a screenshot with me, and tell me what's the device you're using and the browser.
