Creating an Online Portfolio

Designers often forget how much easier the Internet can make their lives. Although nothing truly beats seeing perfect reproductions of work within a beautifully crafted, print-based portfolio, there can be no denying that the Web is an equally useful promotional device. After all, it's available to pretty much anyone in the industry 24 hours a day.

However, for those dedicated to creating print work, dealing with a Website can be a daunting prospect. Therefore, we're going to lead you through the process of creating a simple portfolio site. Although our example is centred on black-and-white photography, it's just as suitable for displaying graphic design or illustration examples, and the modular nature of the tutorials means you can adapt specific elements for your own needs.
