As tough as it is to open yourself up to public mockery, I'm graciously asking for a your professional feedback on my portfolio site, http://ernies3.com

I'm graduating next Thursday and will be presenting my work during a portfolio show. I figure - you're my people, so at the end of the day the feedback I get from you will be exactly what I need to stay pointed in the right direction. 

(I'm aware of and correcting some "issues" in the UI/Fast Food Web App prototype)

Thanks all,
Ernie S.

Hi Ernie, Thanks for sharing. I think your work shows good diversity. I was interested and surprised by your decision to separate User Interface Designs from Websites. I think it is a shame that the images are so small, given that what you are essentially presenting is your visual work(?) Where are you graduating from? Is it a program specifically catering to interaction and interface design? Great work.

I think your portfolio looks really nice. It has a different look and feel and it seems to represent your personality well so that will definitely help you stand out. I do agree with Tim because I think it might be beneficial to offer larger versions of your wireframes, personas, etc. so that users can read the information. You may also want to add instructions for the user to click outside of your popup images in order to close them. Have you considered putting your More Projects thumbnails at the top of your pages instead of the bottom? Unfortunately, I had to scroll down in order to see them. Also, by providing thumbnails of all of your projects at the top of your respective page sections, you will give users more of a sense of control over what projects they see and the order they see them. As for your resume, personally I don't think it's necessary to include a Word version since you have a PDF version, but if you're going to provide a Word version try saving it as a doc instead of a docx file so that users can avoid backward compatibility issues. Aside from that it looks really good. Nice job!

Hi,<div>I like the range, breadth and depth of what you have in your portfolio--it&#39;s impressive! However, I find it hard to read the reverse type against the black background--on your homepage I literally have to squint to try to read the descriptions associated with &quot;interaction&quot; &quot;user interface&quot; etc. Definitely too much work for my 40+ eyes. Keep in mind that a lot of the people who may be in a position to offer you work will have ancient eyes like mine. ;)</div>
