Design Portfolio Website Tips

2 min read

In this video I discuss how to build and design your online portfolio. I go over content, tools, case study recommendations, and other things to keep in mind. Personal design portfolios can be a lot of work but they are so important to have and to keep updated because they reflect who you are as a person as well as a designer.

Here are some helpful links below. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out with comments or questions!

They even have a guarantee that you will get a job within 6 months of graduating or your money back. I personally know folks who have gone through their programs and found them beneficial.

  1. Great advice here! Especially the stuff about including case studies. I've been a designer for over fifteen years now and this type of knowledge never goes out of style. I'll be using this advice as I redesign my new portfolio site. Thanks so much Christine!

  2. I coded my site in React. A bit overkill since I don't have a whole lot going on, but it was what I was trained in and it was a good way for me to get it done quick. I built the site in about 3 days, most of that spent on styling. Great tips, Christine!
