  • What to include in a graphic design portfolio website?

    I'm currently in the process of doing my portfolio website for my graphic and web design services and I was wondering what should be included in it? Like should I list all my services and have a price quote for certain things? Obviously there will be pages for my work and a contact and home page but what else should be included? I'm just starting out so i'm not sure what my prices should be anyway, I'm looking to get started freelancing.

    I wouldn't include prices for your projects as every project is a different price depending upon the client, amount of work needed to be done, time frame for work to be completed in... You are only shooting yourself in the foot if you add in your prices.

      I agree Ckret, don't put any prices for work or services, but do display examples what you have done and are capable of doing. I've catagorized work on my website into stuff like photography, graphic design, logo design, drawing, advertising.... which reminds me... I need to update it oops...

          Agree with others - definitely no prices! Think about who you are aiming the website at - other designers, companies, locality. . .and write your copy first. Then reread it and probably write it again. . . and again. If you want to be found in Google then copy is king.

            It's the awful vb forum software. It hates iOS amongst many things. Fixed the formatting for you

            I'm sorry this post is formatted so horribly, no idea what's going on with this site. Nothing seems to be working.
