Last week, we discussed the elements that make up a great web design portfolio. Now let’s take a look at some designers that have done an excellent job at incorporating these elements into their portfolio sites. Here are 7 beautiful web design portfolios, from simple to complex, that have really hit it out of the park:

 

Cedric Vella

Cedric’s portfolio incorporates gorgeous photography and is easy to navigate. He includes a sticky navigation, and the call to action (to contact him for work) is clear throughout. The full screen layout draws the user in with an immersive, full-screen display. This strong visual imagery makes a statement while keeping the user interface (UI) intuitive and easy to use.

 

Unikea

Next is this beautiful design portfolio website from Unikea. Your eye is immediately drawn to this portfolio. The use of white space shows off the work clearly and is also user friendly. This portfolio shows a great use of typography, and as you scroll over the top navigation, the tabs change color to highlight the text.

 

Yaron Schoen

This portfolio uses color in a bold and exciting way. The artist changes the color of the background based on the project. The table of contents navigation is also well structured and creative. Try clicking through the “about” section to gather inspiration for your own design portfolio website!

 

Maren Vernon

This portfolio site outlines Maren’s skills in a straightforward, resume style manner, but the real beauty of this design portfolio website is the JavaScript. Open up each tab and watch as the text seems to type open on the screen. We promise you’ll love playing around with her site. Inspired to add some gorgeous interactive effects to your portfolio? Maren added these effects when she took Skillcrush 102 on JavaScript and jQuery!

In just one page, this portfolio displays everything a potential client would need to know in order to hire this talented designer. The card style layout of this website is a great example of how to condense your design portfolio into a single ongoing page that makes navigation easy as pie.

 

Signature Creative

Signature Creative is a digital agency with a beautiful design portfolio website. When you first land on their homepage you’ll notice a full screen layout used to simplify their messaging and guide the visitor. As you click through to view their portfolio, Signature Creative showcases their work by using a card style layout. The depth of their experience and talent are instantly visible.

 

Poco People

This full screen layout uses gorgeous photography to tell a clear story. With minimal navigation and beautiful imagery this designer shows their work in the simplest way possible! You know exactly what to click to get what you need.

One сomment

  1. All portfolio designs are good but I like the Poco with parallax effects but its taking much more time in loading comparatively. Nice list.
