10 Portfolio Websites that Will Make You Say Wow

Why is it necessary to have a portfolio website? Is it a requisite for all designers? Here are 10 portfolio websites that can lead you to the answers.

Why haven’t I thought of that?”

Well, those were the first words I uttered when I saw this collection of websites that will make you say wow. I thought it would be great if I will be able to share these to you.

The answers to the questions above are very simple. It is necessary for a designer to have a portfolio website because it showcases your talent and provides your future clients with an idea of how good you are. If a prospect client wants to hire you, he will of course want to know what your previous projects are and how efficient you were on doing it. They will conduct research (Everybody does. Who wants to throw off their precious bucks for people who can’t deliver, right?) to have an idea about your professionalism, efficiency, speed and talent. If you don’t have a portfolio, where will your clients look?

So, why don’t we begin looking at these and in the end, just be awed and say Wow!
