Online platforms to showcase your design work:
We have covered the benefits of creating an effective portfolio in terms of creating a LookBook or a physical portfolio for your potential clients. In this blog we will cover the various online platforms you, as a designer, can use to showcase your work online.
- 1. Your Website
If you don’t have a website yet, we suggest you get one soon – creating a website is a lot easier and more cost-effective than it used to be – using WordPress templates or wix.com allows anyone to create the website of their dreams. Your website should then include a portfolio gallery where you can share your past projects with anyone who visits your site, as well as directing people to this page on your social media accounts.
- 2. Pinterest
When you create an online platform on Pinterest, remember to always pin your portfolio images straight from your website – this allows all your pins to lead anyone right back to your website.
- 3. Social Media
You can create a portfolio on your Facebook page – personal and business – as well as adding photos to Twitter or Google+.
Here are 4 more sites that either offer you a platform to showcase your work or offer you tools to create your own online portfolio website:
NOTE: Always add your logo or a watermark to any projects, designs, photographs that belong to you – why? Firstly, you do not want anyone to claim that your work is theirs, and secondly, if your images get shared your name, your brand, and your website will be shared too – on all online platforms.
