Joe:

Nice work. I would tweak the type on the Speedo | Modern Gods Ad though. Its not reading as a headline for an ad.

The real problem is you writing. Too wordy. Strange gramar.

Don’t talk about what you learned. Talk about what you accomplished, what skills you used, etc. A company wants to know what you can do for them not what companies in the past have done for you.

Also, why would you talk about a site not launching in your resume. Keep all negatives out and details (like this) out of your resume. Your resume is just a brief introduction. Leave something to discuss on the interview.

You have all this web and mutlimedia skills yet your portfolio is just a pdf (which was taking so much time to load in mozilla that I didn’t wait.) Create a portfolio website that not only presents your current portfolio but shows youb understand how to create a website (including navigation and incorporating sound… maybe even video since you do that.)

You might also want to get critiques here. This group is more graphic focussed.: http://www.howdesign.com/forum/categories.asp

Just a thought-Put your name in the pdf files. Rather than calling them resume and protfilio, you might say jtmaguir_reume or jtmaguir_portfolio

Cool stuff
