Hi everyone, Would love to get some feedback on my portfolio! Kindly let me know how I could make it better and more intuitive! Thank you

My website is www.nakinarh.com


  • And the Expires headers problem reported by Pingdom is bogus. Assets are still cached by the browser. It just has to send a (tiny) request to check if assets have changed. Not a big deal.
  • It's broken. I'm not going to scroll if the page is blank, so you need to fix that first. Your assets are massively oversized. The tiny logo at the top of the page is a huge file, bigger than the actual photos on my site.

    But you need to fix the display bug first.
  • @Louise Foster Ooo I see! Awesome! Thank you so much for this. Will check it out and work on that. Thank you! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ
  • @Naki Narh I've just had another look and it looks like you're using PNG images? If you use WEBP images that will help the site speed some. I've also ran your URL through Tools Pingdom, and while it's scoring a "B", there's still some room for improvement (adding expires headers for example will make a big difference) https://tools.pingdom.com/#635d1c6ada000000
  • @Louise Foster Hi Louise,

    That makes a lot of sense. Thank you so much for that! Still trying to figure out why that page takes so long to load. Hopefully I will figure that out soon! Thank you so much for taking the time! 😁
  • Hey Naki,

    I just had a nosy too :) Great site! As Dylan said below, it could be confusing for some people that the images don't load till you start scrolling. I would also suggest making the logo and header section smaller on the desktop version. Right now it seems to take up about a third of the screen height (the logo on mobile view is a good size) and you really want to focus on the main content :)

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you so so much for the quick response Dylan! Really wonderful feedback! I will make those changes right away! Thank you! πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ˜
  • Hey Naki, hope you're doing well.

    Your website looks amazing so you've done a great job at that. Some things that I noticed was when I go on the page, the images in your portoflio don't load until I start scrolling. I was just sitting there waiting till they appeared but they didn't until I started scrolling. That could be due to the animation you have on the website, not sure why that is happening.

    The link in your footer for LinkedIn doesn't have a link to it, not sure if you don't have one yet or was planning on adding it soon.

    Also I also think that the newsletter section on the "About" page should be put in your footer. It would probably be best to have it on every page so when users scroll down they always have the option to sign up for it.

    Those were some thigns I saw that maybe you could think about but other than those things, your website is amazing.
