What is a Portfolio?

Portfolios are the bread-and-butter for creatives showcasing their work to potential employers, clients or customers. While print portfolios still exist and can be handy, having an online portfolio is crucial for today’s industry. Digital portfolios allow you to apply amazing features that aren’t possible with print, and are much easier to navigate. You can also find print templates for portfolio design, including photography portfolios, if you prefer.

How to Create a Portfolio

Showing clients the best of your work, building trust that your work is consistent, and sharing insight on your creative process and skills as a designer. 

Portfolios are just like resumes, and can be easily created using templates that bring focus to outstanding work and showcase your creativity, commitment and creative process. Whether you’re starting from scratch, creating a mockup design for a potential client or want to amplify your existing portfolio, we are here to help.
