Two things stand out to me on this portfolio website. First, I love the hexagons used to frame the work. Circles are far more common for spotlights like this, but using a hexagon makes it feel new and different. Second, I am totally in love with the typography. It’s entirely made with live web text (no text hidden in images!) and looks highly designed. I wish I had a job to hire you for, Julien!
