This is what i call GORGEOUS! I could look at that Logo for hours and that footer looks grrreat! The only thing i hate about this site is that i haven't designed it ... ;-)

I like the texture, fine touches, and overall layout, but I don't think there's enough contrast between the text color (#CB6F14) and the background color (#6D0000)-- especially not with the topmost lighter, textured areas. But then, I suppose those with color blindness or other vision deficiencies aren't the target audience for a design portfolio.

mjwillis - Very valid point. Something I considered in the design and then coding stages. But yes, given who will be hitting the page, I didn't find color contrast to be as relevant as it would be for other projects. That said, I'm keeping an eye out for comments like yours to see if it's still an issue for color blind users, and even "normal" vision users, ready to change it should it be necessary.

Amazing work, Cameron! What an inspiration your site is. I love the depth and texture; they seem to draw you into the site. Also, the colors work very well together. Great work.

Absolutely gorgeous.

VERY close to perfect...

I usually try to avoid posting comments when others have already expressed my sentiments, but I had to congratulate Cameron on this stunning design.

I look forward to seeing how you incorporate this layout into the rest of your site.

Cameron, I'm not a hater. I'm a fan of a lot of your work actually. But I wonder who is your target audience? Surely it's simply those with an interest in having a web site built? Are they less likely to be colour-blind?

Web standards design with lashings of visual indulgence! Yum yum ...

This is super inspirational design-wise. No two ways about it. Presentationally however, there are a few problems. For example, view the site in IE with text resized to maximum and you will see content dropped down leaving massive gaping space above. No such problems in Firefox and Opera though.

In Firefox with resulation set to 800 text scapes from the bottom half.

Scroller appears with 800 resolution in all browsers.

Also the colour is a bit too rich for my liking. It would have been better if it was lighter. The work shown would have been more prominently visible.

Eoghan - Certainly color blind users are part of not only mine but just about any user audience. This segment wasn't accounted for but should have been. However, a few quick tests at indicate color-blind users likely won't have difficulty viewing the page. By all means, I'd love to hear from any actual color-blind users on the issue if this isn't the case.

Yow dat';s crazy real nice thumbs up... funny I wanted to use that sunflower for a site I was doin also...

Great work! I can't wait to see the rest of your site go as bold as this peice.

On another note, I am a firefox user, and have noticed when designers use image replacement for links (text-indent: -9999px) or something similar that it leaves an ugly dotted line all the way to the edge of the screen. I have added (overflow: hidden) to my ancor tags to remedy this. I just don't know why this isn't more widely adopted? Here is an image to show what I mean

Nice work, Cameron. Quick note for Paul Redmond: Paul, you can also use a(outline:none;) to get rid of those dotted links that go all the way to the edge of the screen.

I think it goes without saying that the design is very beautifully crafted. Great job!

There really isn't a problem with the contrast.. I think it aids in bringing a cohesiveness to the design.

I'm very impressed by the consistency of the quality of your portfolio content. Every single site is a great inspirational piece. I love the scalability of the Vivabit project.

Great work!

I find that the text images are a little confusing. e.g the Designer...Speaker...Author image immediately makes me want to click as it looks like navigation. It gets a bit confusing again with the "view work" images compared to the title images e.g. where it says "Hiram College". Both of these are the same colour implying that they are links. I do find the orange text a bit too low contrast for my liking. This is demonstrated moreso with the text beneath the "css mastery image".The mottled background effectively lowers the contrast further making it a strain on the eyes. I know it has an intended audience but having read his css mastery book it goes against the grain of what he preaches somewhat.

I kind of agree with Stuart. First, I think the site is a beatiful design, but some of the elements are counter-intuitive. The first thing I wanted to do was click desiger, speaker, author because I thought they were navigation. I've seen most of Cameron's work, so I wanted to know about what and where you spoke -- hence the wanting to click speaker and author.

Then I wanted to click the titles "Hiram College", etc, and since the view work was the same kind of design as the titles I ignored them... I know, I know, click the images to view...but I'm just saying that's what I did.

Again, beautiful design and almost perfect.

Taylor: Red Labor-esque? Hah! I only wish Cameron paid that much attention to us...

The textures are really well done. Very clean palette that doesn't get in the way, but gives warmth and provides a place and presence. And the content! Let's not forget about that... Great work from Mr. Moll as usual.
