Project overview:

If you want to stand out from the crowd, you’re going to need an awesome, eye-catching and professional website portfolio. This is a vital tool for any freelance designer; since most creatives are found online, you have to ensure you have a strong digital presence. It’s a great way for you to share you work with busy clients and potential employers, since they can quickly explore your work, rather than having to flick through a huge, printed portfolio.

This whole brief, including actually building your site, is obviously a large task; begin by working on the template designs, starting with your homepage, work page overview and a single project overview page. There are so many potential ways that you can showcase your work, and getting it right can take time. At first, keep it simple, and remember that the way your work is presented is just as – if not more! – important than the website structure itself.

A good tip for portfolio websites is to stick to the quality-over-quantity rule. Finalise up to ten of your most popular projects, and remember to colllect all of the mock-ups, layouts, and even initial sketches for each of these; they might be useful ways to show your process. You should design your site around your actual work; you want to frame rather than distract from it.

Timescales and deadlines

Time spent could vary quite a lot here as this brief is more than just a small design project. You’ll want to dedicate plenty of time in preparing your favourite projects you want to showcase, creating mockups and effective ways to present the work on your site. We would advise spending 4 days preparing and finalising your favourite projects and around 2 days working on the actual site layout and design.
