Rolf’s website is super simple, but has some nice little details worth sharing. The page has a cool and eye-catching first look, with his name shown full-width in a custom font.
He uses a clever technique whilst hovering over his experience section to show what kind of work he did in his previous roles.
But this final feature makes it a Killer Portfolio for me: he shows his work via a self-shot video of his laptop on a desk, with a bit of the room showing in the background.
It’s really refreshing to see a more ‘real world’ view of his projects – as they’re seen by actual users, rather than the super-polished mockups we’re used to seeing on designers’ websites.
This gives the site a ‘warmth’ that you don’t often feel when compared with the more clinical, perfect shots.
