    Adding some lighting effects in website design are able to improve the overall eye-catching effectiveness of the page. Although this design approach is very common in website design nowadays, but it still very effective.

    Thanks so much for the mention. Really appreciate it.

    @Verma Design – I know what you are saying, it’s always a risk. I wouldn’t normally do it for client work (depending on their requirements) but this being my personal portfolio, I felt that it reflected a little bit of my personality which I feel is very important.
