I am not posting it here because of reconnection mostly tbh.

    hehe, well, it doesnt change much anyway. I am talking about SEO value, which you will be left on community. But ofc it's on you to decide that, but just giving you a tip since I know you are not aware of that. You are not growth hacker, you are hacker

          Hey Lucas @lsilberberg , welcome to the community. 🖐

          Quick tips on how to make your portfolio better:

          • Change profile picture, put something professional, recognizable. I dont mean u to pose with suit, it can be your personal logo, but something clear, brandable and personal. Current profile pic is almost able to see ur face
          • Focus for a while. Reading your resume, I am not sure if you are frontend developer or UI/UX designer, or CX consultant. Quality over quantity I am not saying u can;t be both developer and designer, but being developer I can see lack of your UI/UX skills. You should be shown as expert in your field, and not average doing lot of stuff a little bit, like many others.
          • Your work need improvements like usability, typography, positioning .. and you make that improvements, by reading some quality resources, articles and following some great designers like @lubos-volkov @louis-moody @fazurrehman and others (sorry guys, cant count you all). They produce very useful content, tips and tricks.
          • Avoid overusing Lorem ipsum text to me looks like lazy designer. It's ok in early prototype, but for showcase design it's not IMO.

          Have some more words, but I am so sleepy, and i think you have enough to start working on improvements. Hope this help you some.

          Peace

            Hey thank you, I'm going to put those tips into practice for my future work 😁, I'll also try to update some of my "old" jobs 😆

                    Hey Priti, joined ur new community.

                    Just have in mind, that by default new communities are not shown on Explore Page. It's to prevent spam and keep it clean. Once some community show up potencial and new members, I will be gladly update Explore page and show it there

                        Sure. It's just about motivating women to come across the web development. Will keep an eye of the posting.

                          Hi there! Nice to meet you all, I'm Yasmine from Switzerland 🇨🇭And I'm brand new here. I just started working (today!) as a Webdesigner for a Swiss communication agency.

                          After 5 years working in Marketing + Communication, learning front-end development all by myself on the side for nearly 7 years and creating websites in order to pay for my school fees (college is "free" in Switzerland but everything beside it is SO EXPENSIVE), I am thrilled to switch my career path today in order to get in the tech world a little bit more.

                          As I am brand new as a Webdesigner, would you have any suggestions regarding resources, websites, communities, apps and so on that would constitute a good start for me to continue to grow my skills and immerse myself into the Webdesign+Tech world to the max?

                                                    Hi everyone 😊 I was invited to join Vanila because I have just started learning UI design, I would like to help others who are just starting, as well as myself. I'm currently working as a Marketing Assistant, but have always been interested in Graphic Design. I live in Belgrade, Serbia and I have a mixed breed border collie called Zero, after Sub-Zero 😂
