New Portfolio site, please check it out!

Hello everybody, I’m a bit new to this but reckon you guys could be give me some vital feedback.

Just finished designing, coding and hosting my new design portfolio. If you could take a few minutes to have a look I’d be incredibly grateful!


Hi Billy,

First off welcome to SitePoint, to get straight into it my main concern is the overall size of your website in general. While you have a designed a very clean website on load it’s 7.5mb/s which is WAY TOO BIG and took me 2 minutes and 17 seconds to load fully as your background and images are simply too large, there are a lot of great tools you can get for image compression but personally i like to use Adobe Fireworks as it seems to have one of the best compression engines around.

As a side note i did run a validation test and your currently missing a charset meta tag, if you simply add the following in your <head></head> tags it will eliminate any issues if you choose to use non-standard ASCII characters such as Chinese and such.

<meta charset="utf-8">
