40 Inspiring Portfolio Designs

By / Sep 7, 2010 / Inspiration

Portfolio designs can be a great source of inspiration. After all, a portfolio is not only a place to showcase one’s work, but is also a designer’s home on the web. It’s a portfolio piece in itself that represents what the designer is all about. For this reason, you’ll usually find extra amounts of creativity and attention to detail. A designer will put in this extra effort in order to show off their stuff and to attract new clients. So for this post, we’ve gathered 40 portfolio designs to inspire you.

  • http://benkrogh.squarespace.com Benjamin

    Some very nice sites! However, I’m beginning to tire of the trendy Candy Script (designed by Sudtipos, a type foundry in Argentina) typeface that is being used everywhere. Ever since Finch used it for their site (http://www.getfinch.com), it’s just gotten out of hand. Sigh.

    • http://heybrandon.com Brandon

      I agree, Bello has gotten out of hand as well, although I am guilty of using it too. I’ll probably switch it out.

    Personally, my favourite is Josh Sullivan’s, but I wish he had more of a portfolio area… in fact, I wish he had more than the front page period.
