Managing a website design portfolio

14 October 2016

I'm now trialling Behance, an Adobe-owned portfolio management service that describes itself as the "leading online platform to showcase & discover creative work".

The platform is an online community that enables designers to showcase their portfolios and connect with other creatives. The service is free to join and easy to use; Adobe claims the community has over one million members. So far I'm quite impressed! I tried Pinterest a while back but found it a bit fiddly to edit and time-consuming to manage. It's a good service, but unlike Behance is not geared specifically to the needs of designers.

Exploring other designers' projects and portfolios on Behance is a great way to pass the time: talent and creativity abound; inspiration is everywhere. Portfolios can be explored by their creative fields (ie, branding, graphic design, logo design, etc), popularity or location. A set of curated galleries displays some of the site's best work.

There's obviously a limit to how useful a service like Behance can be for a website design portfolio since visuals alone can never tell a whole story. The site can never take the place of a detailed case study, for example. But it complements Facebook nicely and in my opinion is more useful than most other popular social media sites.
