Portfolio Critique

Hi!

I'm currently working on my portfolio, so some constructive opinions will help me very much.
The dimension is 20x20cm and it's meant to be printed. Here's a preview:

http://issuu.com/petar_pavlov/docs/portfolio

Some of the fonts appear darker than they are at this preview.
I would like to know what do you think about the overall layout - is it engaging enough or it looks dull; size of the fonts (mind that one page is 20x20cm); and quality of the work.
The headers and footer are still not applied, as well as the front page. There are more projects that I'm planning to include, so this is just a sneak-peak preview :)

Thanks in advance! and be harsh :)

Hi,

Overall I think it's good, it shows your work large, which is what a portfolio should do. The text is brief which is also good.

I noticed a big typo on the third spread

"Threat the words..."

should read

"Treat the words..."

You don't want to threaten words, they can be very powerful!

good luck.

Thanks, I appreciate your opinion. Oh, thank you for the notice :) It almost slipped away to me.

I really like your portfolio/work. I think that font weight is to light that you are using in the captions either that or it is not communicating correctly in that PDF. Maybe use a thicker weight of the same font? I think it is engaging but the font would help be more "cutting edge" than just a caption.

Your work is great. I checked out that site you uploaded your work on and was about to sign up when I saw this in their user agreement.

Hi:

Nice portfolio!

On a technical note, the portfolio-hosting website is elegant but very slow. Waiting between clicks interrupts the viewing experience. Why not just a PDF that can be downloaded and then viewed without delays?
