I am creating prototype of my webdev/design portfolio website and with current design I wanted to ask if I am doing something wrong UX wise.
The website has a simple structure consisting of landing page, page with my work, my blog and contact info.
I'm trying to do something unique with homepage which is the landing page and it has these elements:
- photo of me in the background
- my name
- what I do
- links to my work showcase, blog, social media and e-mail
- two first posts from my blog
Which are written in sentences with links clearly visible. But it's only a little of text on whole page and since I'm not that good with user experience, I'm concerned it could result in higher bounce rate than with uniform site-wide design.
My question is, should I go through with it and after some time examine user behaviour with some analytics tool, with risk of losing potential clients? Or should I give it up and stick to establised layout design?
Thank you for help.
