Interesting discussion, on first glance I loved it (I visited it initially on phone and it works beautifully on there, perhaps better than desktop as the scroll hijacking doesn't feel as intrusive), I think it's a great example of how to use your personal website (which can often become a minimal, un-designed 'container' of your work) into something interesting and exciting.
But... and it's a big but... I personally feel designers should use their personal sites to truly hero the work they have done and the process they went through to create their work. Looking at Nick's site I feel the work gets a little lost, and there isn't much explanation of the process he went through in the projects. That would be my main criticism of it
Still, site looks gorgeous and it's cool to see these kind of discussions on the forum
