Your site looks good but it has a lot of thumbnails. The images when selecting a game is a bit too big but overall the site look pretty decent and organized. I guess clients really would care that much about the Powered by icon.
IMO you don't.... especially if you work in the graphically orientated field that we do as designers.I've noticed a few people point out thumbnails. And while this thread was supposed to be about website building platforms aimed at portfolios rather than the design of my specific one, I will ask this: How does anyone have an organised portfolio site without a certain number of thumbnails?
IMO you don't.... especially if you work in the graphically orientated field that we do as designers.
Maybe they're on about how many thumbnails you have so it could be it's in reference to the amount of things you're trying to show. No idea though in all honesty.
I get that. But there are dozens of wordpress portfolio themes you could install. You don't need to be a developer, you just need to upload your images and some blurb and it's all done.
Best of all is means you have full control over everything and are not beholden to the T&C of the third party provider.
Ever used one? What's your favourite platform?
I can respect anyone who has the time and skill to build their own website from the ground up but I'm not one of those individuals. Years ago I had a great website on Squarespace (before it was cool ) but there came a time when I needed to kill it off. Since then I've put my work on the likes of Artstation, Behance, Weebly, WIX and all the social medias.
Weebly and WIX just don't cut it for me, and at the moment I'm wondering if I should fork out some dosh to upgrate my membership on either Behance or Artstation to Adobe Portfolio or Artstation Pro respectively.
Not sure which to use as my "proper" website, or even if I need bother. Will clients/employers really care about a "Powered By..." logo on my site? Probably. The Adobe Portfolio looks nicer than Artstation Pro, but is more expensive since it's part of an Adobe subscription (which I don't need right now).
