Your Portfolio: The #1 Way To Convince Your Clients
At first glance, you might think that having a portfolio is just another way to show off your work—but it's really not!
You probably spent a lot of time and effort putting together your portfolio because it's actually an evaluation tool.
The point of having a portfolio isn't to show off how many projects you've completed—it's to prove that YOU are the best candidate for their project.
What makes a stellar portfolio? Audit your current portfolio with the below checklist
Showcasing your best work
A good portfolio is a collection of your best work, with a clear focus and point of view. It's not just about what you've done, but also how you did it (I highly recommend presenting your work in the form of case studies)
It's not just about the design, it's also about how easy it is to navigate around your work. A good portfolio should have:
A clear and concise navigation bar at the top of the page that leads visitors right to your contact information, benefits and services
A consistent color scheme throughout the site, so visitors know where they are at all times
A way to quickly navigate between projects without having to click through each project individually
