Nice single page website. I like the way the large graphic tells the story of what Joey can do & showcases what skills you get with him. I’m not sure what the graph (or if it’s a graph) really represents, but it looks good – Gantt chart maybe? One other weird thing here is the only apparent way (unless I missed something) to contact him is through Twitter, LinkedIN or Dribbble.

Overall though the design is nice and the colors and typography are well done too making for a nice experience when reading the content.

    Nice design. But no portfolio, no way to contact, no real profile unless you visit LinkedIn…

  • I sometimes feel that designers use HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, embedded fonts etc.”just because we can” rather than only when the design could not exist without their use.
    This page is just such an example, it shouts “look how clever I can be” .
    The “infographic”, if that is what it is, could just as easily been made in Photoshop as it doesn’t interact in any way with the user – so why use CSS3 rounded corners, linear gradients etc.
    I feel this is about impressing other designers rather than attracting clients – especially with the lack of an email or contact form.
    All that aside, I love the dramatic use of colour and typography on the page – really grabs your attention.

  • This is one of those designs I come across so often that really leaves me wanting more. I want a portfolio and some full on sub pages and contact info. I’m with you guys it looks really nice but I want more.

  • I think you guys are being a little too critical of this. The type, the colors and the layout are all expertly handled. And this is from somebody who professes to be fluent in design, front-end dev and ruby on rails. No small feat.

    If you look at this site in context of something along the lines of a business card, it’s lacking nothing and gives a quick glimpse of what Joey can do. And I’m not sure what’s wrong with the ways he wants you to contact him either. Those are perfectly valid and serve as a way to connect to him on other networks. I see that as a strategic move, not an oversight.

    I can see wanting more, whether it’s portfolio or whatever, but what’s not there isn’t by omission, it’s by choice. So it’s not entirely fair to criticize it for missing this or that.
