    Great portfolio! I like how your color scheme and the chevron design that you used on each page.I also think that your title and body fonts work really well together. I did have one question: in the chevron design at the bottom of the page, is it larger on the right than on the left? I couldn’t tell if it was an optical illusion or intentionally larger on one side. Really great job!

    I also really liked Fiorald’s portfolio which you can see here:

      Ele, it’s an optical illusion. I kept pulling out my rulers to make sure everything was straight. In the end, I decided it was visually interesting anyway, so I kept it.
