“Chris Cook’s portfolio is simple, largely monochrome, with decent typography. The thing I really like about it, however, is the use of a subtle background pattern. I know that background patterns were basically abandoned along with skeuomorphism, but this is a site that does it right.
I’d like to see more subtle patterns used here, and there. We might even wean ourselves off of our near-complete dependence on huge (and thus slow-to-load) photos.”
