Landing Page Feedback September 25, 2020

Gathering inspiration: Show your personal landing page!

Aquiles Carattino @aqui_c

I am looking for inspiration to improve my personal landing page, so let's see what each one has done and let's provide feedback.

In my case, I really don't feel that the landing page represents me. It was a quick free template grab that served its purpose (Hacker news frontpage).

I am trying to convey a clearer picture of who I am and what I do. I have some ideas, but inspiration is always great!

    Nice! Great info, but some things that need fixing are:

    • The main text should be centered along with the image
    • The logo is way too big. Try making it a bit smaller and left aligned. Then add the nav links to the right side.
    • The part before the main footer shouldn’t also be in a dark color. Make it different. Save the gray for the real footer itself.

    Here’s mine: braydentw.github.io

      Why don't you have a link to BuildFaster.co from your page? (Found the link from Github).

      If you can take a suggestion... Something I find incredibly useful with templates is having a collection of components. I checked a couple of your templates, and I wonder, for example if I ad an <ul>, how would it render? Or forms that fail to validate. They give a lot of flexibility, and compound over time, this is something I simply love about "The SaaS" that didn't find in many other places.

        No, it most of the time won't. But here's why:

        I am selling templates. Not themes/UI kits. So the template is made to use it how it is (and move blocks around if you want).

        Does this make sense?

          Perhaps it does, and if your templates are being bought, then it definitely does!

      Thanks for the feedback! I completely agree with all you said! In any case, I am starting from scratch, meaning new color palette, other information, other layout. Also, I am using it as an exercise to go from Figma to HTML (mostly out of fun)

        Cool! I actually have a few portfolio templates on buildfaster.co. I'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback :)

    It's a website for an app instead of a personal one, but you might still get some value out of it: Tag My Knowledge

    It's built using TailwindUI & Publii. Publii isn't necessary atm, but it allows me to use Handlebars pretty easily & I can create a blog down the line.

      Nice!
      I'm using Wagtail as cms, and Tailwind on my digital garden, so your choices are very similar to what I had in mind
