Where to Post a Design Portfolio? Cicada Has 8 Excellent Options for You

A design portfolio is not just a collection of your works. This way you can demonstrate to your potential employers how you can handle a specific task and why you should be hired.
 

As for the design portfolio format, both electronic and printed versions are most often used. If everything is clear with the second option, where to place the first version remains open to question. Our Singing Cicada will shed some light on this problem for you.

 

Cicada Looking for a Place to Sing: Top 8 Websites Where You Can Create Portfolio

In search of a place to sing, our Cicada found eight locations. So, below, Singing Cicada will share with you her top platforms for the presentation of creativity on the Great Web.

 

ReadyMag

FM Rating: 5/5

 

This is a web constructor for creating stylish and modern interactive portfolios. It does not require knowledge of the program code (but you can download it if necessary). Portfolios created in Readymag automatically adapt to the size of device screens. You can work with the design in an intuitive graphic editor, creating it from scratch or with the help of a ready-made template. Google Analytics is automatically connected to the project, opening access to statistics of interactions with visitors. Also, if necessary, you can connect social media tags here.

Tilda

FM Rating: 4/5

 

This is a paid minimalistic website builder. Note that landing pages are not Tilda's strong point, since there are no built-in tools for analyzing conversion and testing page effectiveness. Integration of the capabilities of other web services and APIs solves the problem of customization, which means that you can upgrade the created portfolio to more advanced website options. To use it effectively, Tilda will require some experience in web design, otherwise, too rich customization tools can make it difficult for you to create a portfolio.

 

 

Figma

FM Rating: 5/5

 

Compared to less advanced solutions, Figma doesn't use your hard drive - instead, the generated files are stored in the cloud. This means that even if your portfolio is very capacious, you don't have to buy hosting - instead, you just have to share the link. Moreover, it can be considered a free product, since there is a freemium package with a set of features (including prototyping) that are enough to create a high-quality platform for your art. And yes, you don't need any special knowledge to work with Figma.

 

 

Canva

FM Rating: 3/5

 

This is another portfolio-building solution for beginners. In just a couple of clicks, you can create a custom gallery of your best work to showcase to the world! You can take inspiration from existing ideas from the catalog or come up with your own from scratch - all this is possible through an intuitive interface. At the same time, you can modify all your arts directly through your profile, without the need to re-download.

 

 

Portfolio.Adobe

FM Rating: 3/5

 

This is a rather "ancient" (and, in our opinion, a little uninteresting) tool from a well-known software vendor. Here you will find many customizable layouts that can be adapted for different types of creativity, from photography to web page designs. Note that absolutely all of them are capable of adapting to devices of various form factors - both on a PC and on a smartphone. Edits to these layouts can be carried over from any device, in real time. This tool also includes features such as a personalized URL, Google Analytics, Behance synchronization, and more.

 

 

Squarespace

FM Rating: 2/5

 

This one is the most serious member of our list. It is an online platform with almost endless portfolio creation and customization options. Thanks to this service, you can build your own website, which, by the way, can be used as an extended version of your Behance or Dribble accounts. This service offers many advanced templates designed for designers and artists and does not require any web development skills to customize them.

 

 

Webflow

FM Rating: 3/5

 

Webflow is the solution for professional website developers. It is similar to Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and a website builder with a WYSIWYG editor. By the way, here you can customize individual elements. The process of creating a website is simple, like in any other website builder. In addition, this constructor has an extensive library of ready-made custom templates, which makes it possible to use Webflow as a CMS. Despite the fact that this product does not require coding skills, the level of difficulty in mastering it is above average.

 

 

Semplice

FM Rating: 2/5

 

This is an awesome WordPress-based builder that comes with an excellent user guide. Those who have already had experience with WordPress understand how simple and user-friendly it is. You can easily figure out how to set up and upload the fonts, color palette, and any other components you need. You can also easily add various visual effects to make the site as customizable as possible. And all this without a single line of code.

 

 

The Last Cicada’s Song
