Updating resumes and online portfolios should be a routine we all do, rather it’s quarterly, semi-annually or annually. This reference guide to your abilities will make you stand out to potential employers and clients because it showcases how you translate ideas and convey concepts with your designs. A well-curated sample of designs is the best digital portfolio for graphic designers to demonstrate their adeptness at design thinking and problem-solving.
Pinpointing noteworthy pieces to include in your digital portfolio may seem overwhelming at times, especially when you are tailoring to specific employers. However difficult it is, you’ll need a strategic mindset when choosing work that highlights your capabilities.
Roberto Blake, whose online portfolio can be found here, provides graphic designers advice on what pieces to include in their digital portfolio and how to present the portfolio to employers and prospective clients in this workshop, How to Design a Digital Portfolio.
