The animated transitions are pretty neat, and were even neater 4 years ago when he first built them, but my favorite part about the site is the way he lays out his whole design philosophy through a number of well-documented projects.
Aimed for minimal but nice looking, and tried to push all the tech jargon to the side so you can ignore it if you're non-technical.
It's missing an about section, but that's because I wanted to experiment with my site, work, and resume speaking for who I am over marketing copy. Affects SEO and likely perception, but I built this recently for a grad school application. If rejected will begin applying for a new job/seek new/clients, and am curious to see how receptive it is then. If it performs poorly then, then a new iteration will be made.
Last note, it's not optimized/built for mobile as of now, so points off for that :/
The idea is pretty cool, though, and fun indeed.
Latest Deus Ex game fans should recognize what was my source of inspiration there ;)
