As a creative professional, you need a repository of your work that you can show other people. This is called a portfolio.
Since we now live in the internet age where anyone can access anything anytime, it is imperative that you have an online portfolio. The only real problem is figuring out where to put your work – there are so many online portfolio tools and communities, it can be challenging to determine which one will work best for you. I’ve written this article to help you decide how to get your portfolio up and running ASAP.
Dribbble- Dribble is a portfolio networking platform where designers share “shots,” small screenshots of the designs and applications they are working on. All types of creatives are welcome here – Dribbble is designed for show and tell – to promote, discover, and explore design.
The Dribble interface is pleasant and simple. The Shots boxes show many many people have viewed, commented, and liked a shot. On mouseover, a short description and timestamp fade into place. Clicking on a shot takes you to its page, where you get more details. Dribble allows users to create “buckets,” or curated lists of shots. Dribble also allows users to sort shorts by popularity, submission time, color, & project (multiple shots for one project.)
Coroflot- Coroflot says they are the largest, most established, most diverse pool of professional creative portfolios in the world.
Coroflot is an open system – there are no membership requirements, application processes, or invites. Coroflot gives you all the basics – a place to host your images and videos, sharing tools, a job board, & a featured member gallery. The presentation that you would expect for an online portfolio tool just isn’t here though – there isn’t any customization that you can do to the design of your portfolio – it looks disconnected; it doesn’t feel cohesive.
Behance- Behance is a portfolio networking platform for introducing talent to opportunity. Behance is growing quickly, and attracts millions of page views a month. Behance also powers creative networks for top schools and organizations like Adweek, LinkedIn, AIGA, RISD, and more. Behance allows users to explore all different disciplines of art and design in the “explore” section. You can filter the categories that you would like to see easily, which then takes you to beautifully presented project pages. From here you can comment, share, and view the artist’s portfolio (which are also beautiful.) On the back end, Behance features robust community tools like an activity feed, groups, performance statistics, curated collections (like Dribbble’s buckets), and even curated, branded sites (such as “Illustration, Served” – these sites showcase the best of the Behance network towards a wider audience on the web.
