Freelance Portfolio Review

Hi all. I'd like an honest critique of my Freelance Design portfolio, I need to know if it's heading in the right direction.
I have 4 large case studies on recent cross-media projects where I talk through the project.
I've also kept my side skills to smaller sections to avoid confusion that I'm foremost a Graphic Designer.

Do you think I need an about section?

The portfolio can be found at: www.hartsoncreative.co.uk

Thanks for any advice you can give.
All the best,
Paul

Drop the hero image. It's just a bit of nonsense puffery.

The case studies on the homepage need captions - to tell me what I'm looking at.

The websites need to link to case study pages and from there to the actual sites. Check the sites your self - some of them have updated and now look nothing like your screenshots. This suggests they weren't happy with your efforts.

None of the pages have a call to action. There is no apparent way to contact you unless I scroll down on the homepage. Which is unlikely as I'd have clicked on something before I get there.

What is the purpose of the site? It it simply a brochure or is it a lead generator? What is your marketing plan (as this will drive the shape of the site)?

This is a good point and always something I check and would think if any different.

There are loads more needs fixing but your answers to my questions will indicate the direction of the review.
