I'm a full-stack developer, creating a portfolio page with node and react. I'm using a side menu that has some pretty cool features, and I think it looks great. I want the page itself to have a minimalist look to it, which is why I chose the side menu.
However, I was wondering if using a side menu would be tedious, and in this case not very functional? And whether an employer may frown upon it. I included some images (site is far from complete, but the menu is finished) to help with an opinion.
Any input greatly appreciated!
