完美投资组合的注意事项

Portfolio site

+$If you’re creating a design portfolio, it’s safe to assume you know at least the foundational rules of good design. Yet when we work in isolation on our own portfolio, it’s easy to forget the common rules we would apply to any other client project. Sometimes we’re just too close to our own work, which almost blinds us.

作为设计师,产品组合对您的成功至关重要。但在一天结束时,它不是关于投资组合 - 而是关于你和你的工作。而不是专注于建立完美的投资组合,专注于找到分享您已经创建的工作的完美方式。其他一切都将从那里落实到位。

+$As co-founder of Semplice, I see plenty of设计组合+$every day. In this article, I'll share what I've learned through my day job, and offer you my top tips for ensuring you don’t get in your own way, and instead create a portfolio that sets you up for success.

01.首先介绍一下

Violeta Noy’s portfolio site intro

Violeta Noy的投资组合简单易懂的介绍

做:立即自我介绍一个快速段落,说明你是谁,你在哪里(如果这对你的工作很重要)以及你喜欢做什么样的工作。展现您的个性,但要直截了当,所以您网站的第一眼就能为您的观众提供他们所需的背景。

别:写一些通用的垃圾介绍,说你'制作有意义的体验'或'推动像素'。除了过度使用之外,这样的短语对任何人都没有任何意义,也不会帮助您的潜在雇主或客户了解您的工作。

02.选择要包括的正确工作

Sidney Lim's visual portfolio site

只展示你想要知道的工作,比如Sidney Lim

做:+$Curate your portfolio to show only your best work. More importantly, pick the kind of work you want to do in the future.

别:只使用规范工作或未经请求的设计填充您的投资组合。当然,偶尔的未经请求的设计可以在您没有客户工作来证明它时帮助展示您的技能。但是太多只表明你擅长孤立地工作而没有任何限制,这在付费项目中几乎不是这样。

+$If you do choose to do some unsolicited work (if you’re a young designer trying to start fresh in a new field, for example), don’t do the typical Fortune 500 redesign for a company like Nike or Apple. These companies already have fantastic assets, so it’s not showing much skill to design for those brands. Choose a smaller company that you admire instead. Show what you can do when you’re working with nothing, and that will impress.

03.让您轻松愉快地浏览

Pawel Nolbert portfolio site

Pawel Nolbert的投资组合网站并没有妨碍他充满活力的工作

做:+$Think of your portfolio as space in a museum. Make it clean, easy to navigate and fully focused on the work itself. Design for the end user who might be viewing hundreds of portfolios a day. Make it easy for them to learn who you are and what you can do.

别:将您的投资组合设计为本身的艺术品。当我们将我们的投资组合视为个人项目或创意出路时,我们可能会过度复杂化或使其变得过于有趣 - 以至于对于必须查看它的人来说它变得无法使用。

例如,一个花哨的水平滚动功能对于你作为设计师来说可能看起来很独特和有趣,但没有人盲目地点击next / Prev箭头而不知道他们在哪里领先。我们倾向于通过点击我们感兴趣的内容以视觉方式浏览投资组合。不要让用户查看您的投资组合。

04.创建一个出色的关于页面

Meryl Vedros's About page

Meryl Vedros提供的信息丰富且美观的页面

做:+$Spend time making the perfect About page. Your About page is the most important page on your portfolio. I’ve reviewed hundreds of portfolios and always navigate here first to get context before I browse. The numbers on my own website confirm it too: The About page gets more hits than any other page on my site. Do something different and memorable here that offers a real glimpse into who you are.

别:太搞笑了,遗漏了我们需要知道的重要信息。不要忘记你的名字(是的,我已经看到了我在任何地方找不到任何名字或姓氏的作品集),一张你的照片(一个有所作为的好个人风格)和你的主要技能。请不要忘记列出您的电子邮件地址。
