Tips for a Better Design Portfolio

  • Only include your best work.
    Your portfolio should highlight your projects with the best results. Remember, a portfolio is designed to sell yourself, so you only want to present the best.
  • Only show relevant work.
    If your speciality is in logo designs, don't show your illustration work. Design your portfolio around your target market & what they want to see!
  • Use mockups to show context.
    Indicate how your designs work in the real world by using mockups to bring context to your work.
  • Share the problem & the resolution.
    Specify at the beginning of each project what the initial problem was & your method of finding the solution.
  • Showcase the process.
    Sharing your process with expand the appreciation from your next client about the amount of time & effort that goes into the design process.
  • Go high-resolution.
    In a portfolio, you want your work to look the best it can. Use high-resolution imagery to portray the high-quality standard of your work.
  • Include call-to-actions.
    If a potential client likes your work in your portfolio, make it easy for them to reach out to you. At the end of each work, feature a call-to-action to get in contact.
  • Keep it updated.
    Make sure to keep updating your portfolio on a regular basis. The more work you can showcase, the better.
