    This is what I was referring to with the text. See how the text gets cut off? Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    I'm not sure I understand the ferris wheel metaphor but I think it's cool.

    Nice work! I like the elegant feel and the color scheme. :)

    My critiques:

    • Some of the project pages don't render properly for me. The text overflows out of its container. For some pages, it's noticeable when I resize the browser smaller.

    • I agree with @Scott de Jonge about the body text being hard to read.

    • It'd nice to have an indicator where the design work/portfolio stops and the blog articles begin. I was a bit confused. Maybe add a heading to this section?

    • In my opinion, the hover effect over the "More about me" and "Get in touch" links isn't necessary. The flash of the background images don't fit with the smooth transitions of the site and just seems clunky to me. I suggest just making the images visible from the get go. You can experiment with other hover transitions if you want, but I don't thing they're necessary.

    • I thought "programing" might have been a typo (I spell it "programming"), but I realized we might just have vernacular differences in spelling. I made note of this just in case you didn't intend to spell it this way.

    I think I saw this a while back, but I love the elegance of Kerem's personal site.

    Also always been inspired by these—typographic, minimal with lots of white space: - - - -

    Looks great in my opinion! I would just say that your website is actually it's pretty text heavy (which I like), but at times reading it can make my eyes fatigue because of the use of bright colors and a small font with low contrast.

    Do you have a story about a worst-case scenario that you experienced? Ex: a horrible client or showing up to a shoot with an empty camera battery. How'd you handle it?

    P.S. I really admire your work, Helena! :)

    Yoga instructors benefit society more than UX designers do. Seems pretty legit to me.

  • Posted to Show DN: Lyft for Work, Nov 13, 2014

    Hi. I like it!!!

    Some minor things:

    The sign up section feels unbalanced; pricing looks uncentered and heavier to the sign up form, and the use of light grey in that section seems to deemphasize the content.

    The "Why use Lyft for work?" section seems a bit tight in comparison to the previous sections.

    Just my opinion :)
