As most artists know, GIFS are more than silly animations of cats or some weirdo’s dance moves. There’s a world of elegant, edgy and eye-catching GIFs designed by some truly talented creatives.
Having a killer online portfolio for those GIFS is incredibly important. A solid online portfolio has the potential to get your work noticed by clients, gain you notoriety in your field, or even take your career to the next level.
Your online portfolio should speak for itself. Devoid of unnecessary bells and whistles yet beautifully designed, your portfolio should showcase your work in a way that’s clear, engaging and visually captivating.
