After recently relaunching my portfolio, Oliver Lindberg, Editor of .netmagazine asked me to write about my experience. As a regular subscriber, I was hugely excited to be asked to contribute to such a respected publication.
Our portfolio can break or break us, which is often why creating a unique, well crafted site that showcases our work is one of the toughest tasks we undertake as designers.
Before you even create that first pixel though, it’s important to determine if a redesign is even needed. ‘Incessant redesigning’ has been the trend for some years; you get bored of your site, you redesign and three months later the process begins again. These redesigns are often only concerned with the superficial and do little to address the overall user experience and most importantly, how well your portfolio converts visitors to clients.
