Definately better than your previous version. I would perhaps do a bit more work to the portfolio part. When i hover over an image, it just says it will expand, but thats not really helpful - it doesnt actually expand. Perhaps a links to a larger preview would suffice.

The little bits of text relate to the design itself, no? Its saying the thumbnail in the design expands in the live version.

Overall nice job Dan. It wasn't immediately obvious what each link on the left was to though.

Most of it's CSS3. (:

I wanted to show process and train of thought. Too many people just put their end result without much explanation. Though I agree, a finished result can be just as helpful. At the moment I'm split testing to see what converts best.

I agree, but that's the problem with icons in general. The side navigation is secondary to the scrollbar however, so I haven't got to worry about it too much.

Thanks for your input guys.

I think my work section needs re-thinking. I want to be able to show live examples there isn't enough width, unless I link to them but that's not an option I want to take.
