20 Amazing Designer Portfolio Websites from 2012


Part of being a designer supposes a desire to stand out, to create and be surrounded by unique things and this generally reflects on how you present yourself and your work – a.k.a. your portfolio. This is an essential part of the design process, because it influences the way in which your future clients view you. It’s basically a testament (no, I’m not referring to client testimonials – which should definitely be included in the mix) to your level of commitment and attention to detail.

I’m sure that none of this is news to you, but rest assured that I’m not going to badger you with boring facts. I was just trying to convince you that this is going to be an interesting showcase of the coolest designer portfolio websites from 2012 and one worth looking at. You can definitely draw some great inspiration from fellow designers, maybe update your design resources (you know it’s a fast growing market) and put together a truly memorable portfolio that will have clients screaming “Sold!”.

    I absolutely love “Click Farm”……. Great originality and fun! The only problem was I didn’t know what they do until I read through quite a bit. As a Strategic Internet Marketing Specialist I would consider this a disadvantage, however the design is so unique I just had to read further to see what all they do; so in this case the design did work to make me want to read more! Bravo!!

      The same thing happened to me at first Tammy, with numerous websites like Marco Rosella’s, for example (don’t take it personal, Marco). I thought that all the content should be shared upfront, or else you risk losing the attention of your visitor (I for one am quite impatient with this stuff). But the fact that it was interactive created a unique (and pleasant) user experience, that actually made me dig in deeper.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
