I need help making my portfolio

I have no clue what I’m doing

This was a recent request I got from my little fellow designer in training a.k.a. My cute little sister. 😘

I found some great resources for her so figured it won’t hurt to share!

It’s all about branding yourself

You basically need to brand yourself. You want to give over the message of:

  • Who you are
  • Your strengths
  • Your talents
  • Your skills
Your portfolio should tell your future employer what they can expect


Your portfolio should be inspired! Google, google google… look for ideas out there. Don’t be afraid to copy, and then adapt. Eventually if you are determined enough to build your own style, you will…!

Wrapping it up:

Here’s a small formula to help you get started in creating a great portfolio;

  1. Interest; what are you interested in
  2. Inspiration; get inspiration, follow people that make the inspiration, and who you aspire to emulate
  3. Your goals; who you want to be as a designer
