Hey guys!

I am a newbie in this industry and I have just started work on my portfolio design. I want to know your favorite portfolio designs, or your personal likes in a portfolio, or what you think makes a good portfolio.

I did a clean, minimalist mockup but a friend told me that being a designer, I should add more WOW to my portfolio to show off my designing skills.

Please DM or reply here :)

Thanks in advance, Haziq

What I see currently in well sold themes is the fact of minimalists designs sells well, what mean if you make a focus in well structured content with a smootlhy design you can reach your goal both to show your work and have a wow factor. Personally I like to focus on content and have a simple design.

You mind posting it up for us to see, Haziq? I’d love to see how it’s coming :) And I personally would go against the notion of giving it the “WOW” factor. For one, you’ll get tired of it quickly and not want to put effort into posting stuff later on. Secondly, it’s better to keep it clean and minimal to emphasize your quality work.

+1 for minimalism!
