Hello all I am a Graphic designer.
I decided to create my portfolio so I will engage more potential clients.
As this is my first attempt I would like to ask you for your feedback.
This is the link of my portfolio.
“Marina(vertical line)art(vertical line) box (dot) me”
All your comments are welcome.
Thanks for your time.
I am currently struggling to assemble my own portfolio so hopefully some other folks will weigh in heavier.
You said this was for freelance clients, right? The one thing I noticed was that it was easier to navigate your work on Behance than on your website because it was categorized. If I were a potential client, I think a showcase wouldn’t be enough. I think I would need a list of services and a more direct way to start a conversation about my needs to receive a quote. It looks great though! Good luck with your business
It wasn’t just me though. You agreed to some of it.
And I don’t see those changes.
Just wondering what are your plans to improve the website? If you are not taking critique that you’ve already received and liked on board.
What are your plans here?
I don’t think the online portfolio matches up to the level of work you have in your portfolio.
The website looks like it was done an amateur designer - and the portfolio work looks like it was done a designer with a higher level of design ability.
There’s a bit of a disconnect from the presentation box compared to the items within it.
That’s probably the best analogy.
It’s like getting an old shoe box for a present, and opening it up there’s presents from high end marketed products.
The website presentation is very poor. It’s not doing you any justice as a designer and detracts from the good work you’re displaying.
Smurrf2, Yes You have told me this before I think in another forum. I am using squarespace.
I tried hard to use the template and add css and other elements. I will try another template.
Thank you a lot
That looks much better. I personally wouldn’t have “Marina’s Art Box” and then “Welcome to my Art Box”. If you are set on that I might just have “Welcome” and then the background write up. But, either way it looks better.
What I meant by cheesy is that it looked very beginner, bordering on cliché vs the experienced vibe your work shows.
Miles better. The only thing that still jars a bit is the animated on scroll text. Doesn’t add anything and could look at bit gratuitous. Other than that, a huge improvement. You can see your work now.
The way the headings animate into position as you scroll to them. It may be personal preference, but I am very much of the mind that if there is not a good reason to do something, then don’t do it – especially with portfolios, where the delivery usually needs to have a fairly light touch in order to showcase the work itself.
