+$Giving your portfolio a quick once-over to freshen it up is always a great idea, even if you're not actively looking for a job. We've made it dead easy for you, by having a look at the portfolios of some fantastic designers to see what they do particularly well.

+$So here are five quick – genuinely quick – tips to smarten up the way you present your work to the world. And if this post whets your appetite for more portfolio porn, then don't miss our selection of great组合示例

01.切割,杀死,摧毁

Shelby Hipol的投资组合网站只有他最好的作品

这是更难以遵循的提示之一,但它可能是最有价值的。如果你的投资组合看起来非常精益,那么进一步削减将是艰难的,难以接受的。无论如何要这样做。

削减,杀死和摧毁你认为完成任何事情的10%。投资组合长达20页?把它降到18.您的网站上有40个项目?制作36.你必须谨慎行事,因为你不希望你的作品看起来太亮。但是,一般来说,给你的投资组合最后一个残酷的编辑,它真的会唱歌。

看看谢尔比希波尔的投资组合网站+$, an NYC designer: there's no wasted word or image here. We're guessing Hipol could easily triple the content on his portfolio. But he mirrors its minimal design by only including his very best projects.

02.讲一个故事

Herbert Matter的投资组合网站以大胆的介绍图片打开

刷新您的投资组合而不添加任何新工作的最简单方法是:重新排列您已经获得的内容。把它想象成一部电影。编剧谈论“情节点” - 他们挂起故事的帐篷杆。您可以通过简单地移动您的项目的情节点来讲述一个新故事。

这种方法特别适用于物理投资组合,但这些原则同样适用于在线。你的职业定义工作应该先行还是持续?你真的希望你最喜欢的项目在中间丢失吗?你希望读者看到的最后一件事是什么?

看看已故Herbert Matter的投资组合网站。它从一个大而大胆的介绍页面开始。您输入然后登陆他的视觉语言视频。这是他的生活和工作的故事。

+$03. Use Quotes

乔治·路易斯(George Lois)的网站上有一个引人注目的引号轮播

它并没有比这更快:列出你最满意的客户,你最喜欢的佣金,给你最好成绩的设计老师。给他们发电子邮件并询问推荐,快速报价,说明您的创意,或者您如何在预算内完成项目,或者您从未错过讲座并粉碎所有考试。

坚持下去吧。你绝对不想过分这个。但奇怪的建议可能会对潜在客户或可能的雇主产生重大影响。

看看传奇设计师George Lois的投资组合网站:“引发广告创意革命的代理人挑衅者”在他的头版上引用了一句话。看完之后你怎么能拒绝透过他的东西?

04.让它易于使用

Kati Forner website

+$Kati Forner Design's site is both elegant and simple

+$You could have a lean, well-organised portfolio, complete with plenty of great recommendations from clients. But one really obvious thing could be letting you down: is your portfolio easy to navigate?

如果您的投资组合在线,请不要因为过于复杂或花哨的设计而牺牲可用性。如果您有印刷品组合,请考虑页码,章节标题,颜色协调,甚至是带状书签,以及任何有助于读者阅读的内容。希望无论是谁阅读它都会不止一次地看着你的作品,从这个项目到那个项目然后再回来。帮他们一个忙。使其易于阅读,按时间顺序或其他方式。

+$Have a look at how+$Kati Forner Design+$does it, with Work, About, Contact the only options available in the menu. Contact details are also displayed clearly. This makes it easy to navigate and tells you everything you need to know without getting lost in a sea of pages or animations.

+$05. Include a photo of you

+$Eleanor Shakespeare's About page gives you a strong sense of who she is, partly helped by her photo

+$This one's open to debate. But, at time when more people are familiar with our Twitter name than they are with our face, a photo could make all the difference. A proper photo, that is. Not an illustration. Not a multilayered photo-manipulation thing. And definitely not some arty, clipped, black and white shot in which you look like your dog's just died. A portrait – head and shoulders, or a bit more.

+$A photo can stop your portfolio looking cold and clinical, and help the reader get a feel for who you are.埃莉诺莎士比亚+$does this well on her site, and her photo arguably helps with this.
