Definitely. I'd rather remove the timeline if it doesn't serve any purpose other than just being "pretty". My goal is to see these timelines get filled up as the years go by. And as a reminder that I should do more each year. It's saddening to see that some of my years are only filled with work, with very little side projects/events. It's a personal space for me to collect all these artifacts which in turn can be used as a CV/Resume if needed. I've always liked the idea of keeping a traditional diary but could never bring myself to do it... A digital one on the other hand, seems more likely.
Credit where credit's due: https://www.fbf8.com/schedule I was partially inspired by the design of the calendar here. At my previous job I've dealt with calendars quite a fair bit and I've found it to be capable of being used in a myriad of situations.
This is great Andy! Kept me scrolling. I feel like I have a much better feel for what makes you tick than most portfolio sites. Could just be me, but I struggled to make out what section of the timeline related to which project, until I looked really closely and noticed the color coded slashes below. Maybe color coding the project headers could help with this? Really refreshing take on a personal site though. Great work and thanks for sharing :)
@Sam, you're right about the headers being detached from the timeline, thus making it difficult to tell which project corresponds to which timeline. I've added the project name to the timeline itself and made minor tweaks to the header. Thanks for your feedback! ✌️
