Essential Elements for Your Portfolio Website
Every project needs a formula – a purpose. Without it, it’s going to be very hard to impress.
When creating a portfolio website, first ask yourself, what is the purpose? 🤔
The basic formula of a portfolio website would include a logo, tagline, your best work, and contact information. Sometimes this works but in many cases, it’s poor implementation. To highlight your portfolio in another light, consider including other key elements that will boost your portfolio’s user experience: case studies, testimonials, blog, and even a project you’re currently working on at the moment. These are vital elements.
When working on your portfolio site design, think about the elements your future clients should be able to find. Ask yourself – what is the purpose of your portfolio? Do you want to sell your services, are you looking for a job and want to be hired, or is it a website about you? The main focus of your portfolio site should be catching visitor’s attention.
Take your portfolio as an opportunity to surprise and impress your potential clients. A portfolio website lets you show off all of your work in one place. This not only looks good to a client, but it can also help inspire you on your next projects.
Tell others about your skills and personality. Express your uniqueness through case studies. Be searchable and keep pace with your competitors. There are no rules and everything goes as long as you are able to make the visitor smile and remember you.
