The first thing that jumped out at me is the sheer number of images that you have shown. I realize that you're trying to show the depth of the iPhone applications that you have created, but it is currently a little overwhelming for a user. Also, the 'thumbnails', that is to say, the images of iPhones in the vertical orientation, are quite small. It's hard to tell what is going on at all with them. The two horizontal iPhone images are much better, even for thumbnails.

So, bottom line: I would choose fewer thumbnails, but with larger versions of them. If the touchscreen size, either vertical or horizontal, is kept the same size (like the size of the horizontal thumbnails), I think you'll be at the right size.

Lastly, I think you're full size images could also stand to be a bit larger. If someone is going to sit through a lightbox load, I'd give them at least another 30% in size.

Fine. You may book me (and surely several other members of this list,
as well) for design consulting. How much are you intending to pay?

Cheers,

Have you looked at using a portfolio hosting service such as Krop?

You don't need an iphone framing every UI image. Just one, the rest can be simpler and larger. It's implied.

@Sacha, this forum is for sharing knowledge with the community, not really for saying, "Hey! I do design consultation. How much can you pay?"

Rohit, you can set up a good looking portfolio website really fast using these WordPress themes-

@Anonymous:

I agree with Sacha, actually. Rohitkulthia drops the design here with a short oneliner, no further explanation or insight in his/her efforts. How can we give suiting feedback if we're provided so little information? Why would we spend more than 4 lines on a message if the topicstarter is not willing to do so, for us? That's where it comes down to. Undecided

First thing, the link doesn't work. If I navigate to the root and choose Portfolio.php, I get a nicely designed site with some kind of showcase of iPhone apps. Nothing wrong with that, I'd say. Looks like just throwing content in an existing styled page. Did I overlook something?

I don't think there is need for a lightbox script or different navigation. Only, the images could be bigger and more of them - the user will likely want to see how it behaves, before he buys it. And it's a nice framing to load every preview in a sleek positioned iPhone, but the images could load a bit faster. You could consider reusing the phone image and loading the screens inside them. I'm willing to wait for loading the preview, but not 10 times for the iPhone. Waste of loaded pixels, I'd say. Smile
