Web Design Portfolio Tip: Design and Navigation Are Key  

As a web designer, the last thing you want is a poorly functioning website that users struggle to navigate. You want to show potential clients that you know how to put together a visually appealing website that not only looks great, but also functions well. You need to consider both elements if you want to reel people in with your eye for design. For example, make sure users can easily navigate to various examples in your portfolio. In addition, don’t forget to make your contact information readily available for potential leads. Even something as simple as ensuring your navigation bar is front and center can make all the difference in ensuring that your website stands out as a web design portfolio example that other designers envy.

Web Design Ideas: Don’t Forget About The Principle Elements of Design

Your portfolio needs to be a reflection of your skill as a designer, and that means keeping all design principles in mind as you go about building your website. Colors, spacing, typography, branding, and even logo design; no detail is too small when it comes to designing your website. While you’ll certainly find that different clients have different preferences and tastes, staying true to your own unique aesthetic will help ensure you attract the right clients to your work. You should always feel confident enough to step outside the bounds of convention as a designer, but it’s also important to cultivate an awareness of when sticking with classic design principles might serve you best. Continue to practice your craft, and you’ll likely struggle much less when making this call.
