22 Stunning Portfolio Designs for your Inspiration

20 Oct

A portfolio is a wonderful way to showcase artworks online and promote yourself. Here is a collection of exciting portfolio designs. The main aim of these websites is to draw users’ attention and attract potential buyers. Let’s have a look!

A online portfolio is a gallery of excellent and engaging artworks. It tells a lot about designer’s skills, his/her inner world and powerful imagination. It is also an act of communication and an effective tool for self-promotion. Portfolio is often the only thing a person sees before deciding whether or not to contact you. It can be various forms but the most successful and profitable one – is online-portfolio. We live in a digital age, so let’s take its benefits and create websites that are eye-catching, creative and accessible. Take the advantage of the Internet and showcase your works online, extend the borders and present your projects not only in a native country but also in the whole world.

The portfolio appearance is better when it has a minimal style, rich interactive elements and is easy to use. Frame your work in such unique way and provide a really unrivalled experience that can not only attract users’ attention but also show your capabilities as a designer, photographer or a simply talented artist. Don’t underestimate the role of a content, cause this part of the portfolio is really important. Let people know who you are and where you’re from. This is always not only interesting but also useful information, some clients prefer to work with people nearby or in the same time zone. And one more of the ruses – you can place your initials in the logo and in a such brainy way make a brand from your name :) .
