I love that you're listening to "What's Going On." Seriously.
And the portfolio looks great! I love the home security sticker - I don't think I've seen it before. Tres bien senor.

I have to say

it took me a while of staring at that ambigram to detect that your last name was not Peanus--even though, once I worked it out, I realized I had seen it back when it was first made.

proofreading/copy editing help

"a card for graduation card"?

I'm not sure I've untangled this correctly, but maybe: "The bamboo is also placed in conjunction with the negative white space on the package to imply subtly" etc. Yeah, split infinitives may be a bugbear of small Latinate minds, but you'll have to deal with some of those, so why provoke them unnecessarily? Also, if you can explain "negative white space" easily in a few words, to this ear unversed in graphics jargon it sounds particularly like inflated babble.

Nice collection, nice logo, and I especially like the demonstration of using interesting web presentation without insisting on a particular screen size. One thing you might tighten up a little: I'd put the inside and outside of each trifold behind a single thumbnail, maybe switching the thumbnail to the inside view when it's rolled over. The four related flyers are good listed separately, but separate items for two parts of the same piece make it look like you're just trying puff up the list.

I think my brain must have decided "puff" was some new drug you'd be trying.

Re: proofreading/copy editing help

Thanks for the word salad catches. I started rushing at the end since I had an online test to take by midnight.

I'll see what I can do about combining the flyers into a single thumbnail, though, perhaps by stacking thumbnails or something. Since I am using Lightbox JS to display images, it may be a little tricky.

Lightbox

Neat, I hadn't seen that before. You could make the thumbnail invisible (style = "display: none") so that it stays in the list of links to be shown by "next" but doesn't appear on the index page. Not sure how you'd refer to nextLink.show() in a link in the caption; I've never quite grasped how the this keyword works in JavaScript.

Re: Lightbox

I don't know squat about javascript. I've only started learning CSS this semester, so my range is quite limited.

Did you make your own website? It looks really nice. You should attach a resume!

Yeah, though the way everything displays in those nice expand-o-boxes is publicly available code.

Awesome work!! Everything looks great, my favorites are some of the class projects, especially the Cherry Pie menu. I also love that my shop is there! :D The page looks really good.

Was it hard to do a page like that? I like that style and think it might be good to do a similarly styled site for my photos. But only because I like stealing from you.

It took me a weekend to do, including resizing pics, making thumbnails, and doing a quick and dirty background image. It's far from anything to write home about and I'm going to have to tinker with it some more. Internet Explorer chokes on it compared to Firefox, but IE kinda sucks. I forgot to try Safari while at work.

Paypal account?

Do you have a paypal account? I might have some work for you once I get a job as I would like some logos for my website along with a new Dreamweaver template (I suck at them.)
