5 Portfolio Website Tips for Designers

  1. Really long case studies with lots and lots of text can be condensed. Do it. It’s more of a service to the person reading through your work if it’s concise and gets to the point quickly.
  2. If you’re applying for a job with your portfolio website, tailor the aesthetic and language to meet the company you want to work for. This helps them see how well you’ll fit in with their team.
  3. The landing page matters. Don’t waste it on trying to be too clever, or insert graphics that take too long to load.
  4. Put in projects that you care about, because projects that you care about means you can talk about it with more natural enthusiasm.
  5. The order of information of your website and it’s project structure should be this: best – least interesting – second best.

The Portfolio Campfire is enrolling members for our second cohort happening this March 8th. If you want to take your website seriously, this is the time and place to do it. Sign up for your spot here: https://www.thehabitfactory.space/joinnextcohort/p/oi66avyfj8v20pdrfbxlaq7gwo48s6

Bonus tip: Don’t hide. Put your face in there somewhere. It makes your website feel more human.
