As a creative, you need a home base. A portfolio website provides potential clients a place to find you, and gives Google something to pull information from when people are looking for either you specifically, or someone who does what you do to complete a piece of work. It’s a hub for information like where you’re based, the different types of services you offer, what your rates are, and how to contact you. It’s a living, breathing resume. But, more importantly for creatives, it’s a showcase of the work that you do.
What Are Portfolio Website Templates?
Whether it’s photography, graphic design, or video, portfolio website templates present visual creative work in a way that’s striking, and digestible for potential clients.
