Building your design portfolio? Here are 8 things I wish I’d known.
Emelyn Baker

Great advice, Emelyn! I think the point about portfolios being online could be an entire article in and of itself. Right now, I see many students settling for Behance profiles or unprofessional URLs like or similar sites that brand your service provider and not yourself as a designer. So, step 1 might be to get your portfolio online, but part of that is to make sure you are branding yourself in an elegant and professional manner. The new .design domain names really help you stand out, as a portfolio destination is super appealing to employers, and they’ll click through just for the novelty of the new .design domain.
