    Minor critique:
    • Eastern Pass Tattoos logo is kind of tricky to make out on the front page button, because of the colors. That business card is pretty dope, btw.

    • Does "PHILA, PENNA" mean Philadelphia, PA?
    I assume it does, but not totally sure. Might be tricky for potential clients not familiar with US geography.

    • On the general organization:
    It might be good to have some place where the client can simply look for all of your logos, or illos or tees or whatever- kind of like you did with the Misc Apparel button.

    The way you present featured projects is cool, but just for practicality, it might be nice to provide an option to search or view by category. You might do this by making the category names at the bottom of your Services page into active links. Just an idea.

    Most clients, it seems to me, come looking for a specific type of design, so putting all your best logos in front of them, when they're shopping for an illustrator might not be conducive.

    I'm rebuilding my site right now. Solidarity in the struggle. heh

    Good luck

    Thanks man, appreciate the feedback, although I do disagree with most of your points.

    1.) Does "PHILA, PENNA" mean Philadelphia, PA?

    - Essentially, yes, but doesn't matter if client understands, it's not meant to serve a geographical purpose just a design element that most people would understand, history education is not my concern.

    2.) On the general organization:
    It might be good to have some place where the client can simply look for all of your logos, or illos or tees or whatever- kind of like you did with the Misc Apparel button.

    - I've done this in the past and have realized that I strongly dislike when designers choose this type of organization. I can understand where you're coming from, but in terms of a portfolio and how work is presented, I believe I chose the correct way to present my body of work. If I were to show work in a "logos 1" format, it would be on another site, like Behance. I kept the portfolio small for a reason, it's easy to navigate and does not take long to view the entire website. If I had an overwhelming amount of work and 15-20 logos displayed, 15-20 cd covers etc, I could see your suggestion working, but to have a section titled "logos" and only have 4 logos there..doesn't make much sense.

    Some good stuff in here, new site looks great! My only suggestion is to maybe re-think the copy in your header. Understand you're going for the unique approach vs. more generic portfolio language but I chuckled at the grouping of Craft Services in the navigation.

    PS. if you aren't familiar with that term, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Craft_service

    haha I work in a production studio. I had the same thought, but I just figured since I was familiar with the term I that's why I was seeing it. I figured that most people wouldn't even put those two terms together in any way. But since you pointed it out..and I did question it at first, I'm changing it.

    I switched it from "craft" to "work" ;)

    Nice site.

    My only constructive criticism on the site design is the logo size on mobile and tablet. It just gets way to small and there is enough space to keep the regular size logo.
