On Saturday I’ll host a Skillcrush Master Class on how I built my first portfolio website. Although my portfolio is still a work in progress, I’m thrilled to talk to current Skillcrush classmates on the 8 steps I went through to build my site and the inspiration I found when researching portfolio ideas on the web.
Below are the nine examples I’ll be showing in my presentation. All of these examples are portfolio sites that any graduate of the Skillcrush Web Designer Career Blueprint could replicate. To visit the website, just click on the image. And if you have a great portfolio to showcase, leave me a link in the comments below!
