If you’re interested in learning how to make a graphic design portfolio from the get-go, then you can scroll all the way down below to see the guide. However, if you have a few minutes to spare, then you might be interested in reading this post from the beginning. After reading this post, you’ll learn how to find your hosting, create a URL, build the look of your online portfolio and create your blog – all in under 15 minutes. If the design of your online portfolio sucks, you could seriously be losing out on valuable clients. Would you rather hire an accountant whose office is in a broke down building with the wallpaper falling off and cockroaches roaming around? Even if this guy had great skills and could probably give you useful advice, deep down, would you really trust this person with your hard-earned cash? Or would you rather spend a bit more money and hire an accountant that has a decent office in a nice neighbourhood. You may not think this is much but below I’ll explain the thought process behind why you’re most likely to hire this type of accountant. By the look of this accountant’s office, you know that they must be earning a decent income in order to maintain it. Since these guys are earning a good income, it must also mean that they have a decent amount of clients.
And since they have a decent amount of clients, it should also mean that their clients trust them with their money, which means that your money should be safe with them as well. I know this example is a bit on the extreme side, but would you honestly hire this person to design your website? The first time you see someone, before they even say a word, you have already sized them up in the first 3 seconds. In your mind, you’ve already created an image of how this person speaks, what kind of personality they have and how reliable they are. Now tell me, if you went to the above site, would you stick around and see what kind of service they provide or will you instantly hit the ‘close’ button? Looking at Jacob’s portfolio, you know straight away that you’ll be getting your money’s worth. If you’re looking to hire a designer and you came across Jacob’s site, would you stick around longer to see what else he does? The design of your online portfolio reflects what kind of person you are and what kind of service you provide. Another benefit that comes with creating an online portfolio is that you get to create your own URL.


Ever since I’ve changed my URL to a personal one, I have seen a dramatic increase in enquiries from potential clients. By having a blog on the same site as your online portfolio, you’ll be able to gain authority and clients will be less reluctant to hire you since you’ve already proved your skills. I remember reading a post on Chris Spooner’s blog about how he got hired after a client saw his post on skateboard design. So I decided to send him an email so that he could elaborate more on this. If you’ve created a blog post that showcases your talent, you’ll have ensured the client that you have the right skills and techniques to do the work properly. The design of your portfolio, your URL, your personal blog that is naturally connected to your portfolio site ­– all of these things add up and make you seem like a professional. Creating a domain name and finding your hosting can all be done in one place and in one go.
After logging into your Bluehost control panel, scroll down to the ‘Blogs’ category and click on ‘Wordpress’.
If you have a bit more money to invest, then I would HIGHLY recommend that you purchase your portfolio theme from StudioPress. I straightaway purchased my first theme from them and… let’s just say that I would gladly pay double of what they’re asking. Not only do they sell awesome themes, but since they all run on the Genesis framework, the backend of all their themes is simply mind-blowing. Now, if any of the portfolio themes from the other two sites are not to your taste, then you should think about purchasing a theme from ThemeForest.
This blog was originally created to connect with different creatives around the world. In order to stay true to this, this page was developed for you to introduce yourself, promote your portfolio and interact with other creatives.
Fatpaint is an advanced online logo design software that has poweful tools for creating company logos. They think that it’s expensive and that there are a lot of coding and other technicalities involved.
By having a well-designed portfolio, it will instantly boost your credibility, differentiate you from your peers and will gain you respect.
Most of the popular blogs you see online, run on WordPress mostly because of the ease of using it and also because of its seemingly endless capabilities.
A couple of high paying clients so that we can enjoy doing what we love and worry less about where the next pay check is coming from.
Feel free to save it for future reference, or even better, you can Pin It onto your Pinterest board. I would recommend that you use your name in the URL, that way it makes you seem more personal.


You’ll probably be spending a couple of hours (I spent 4) searching for your theme and testing them out. I’ve poured a lot of money down the drain purchasing different themes and then finding issues with them later.
They also have a free in-depth guide available if you have no clue how on how to customize your portfolio. They have a ton of good portfolio themes and also have a great forum where you could ask any question you want and they usually reply within the same day. It took 5 years to develop the software and the result is a free online logo maker that has all the tools you need for creating a logo. This basically protects personal address and phone number from being displayed to the public. I then started to see numerous popular bloggers giving some seriously good feedback for the Genesis framework. Various vector drawing tools are provided so you can create your own drawings from scratch.
I then received an email from a guy from a merchandising company who said he’d seen my work and liked what he saw.
Most logos are made of simple graphics that you can draw yourself, and Fatpaint is for sure up to the task of creating these types of logos as well as advanced ones, for example using 3D graphics. He then asked if I wanted to design a skateboard deck, t-shirt and hoodie design for the band’s new album launch. In case you want to incorporate advanced graphics into your logo, you can make use of multiple layers, and we even provide a tool that let you create photo realistic 3D text. The tool is complex, so you need to watch our tutorial videos for a quicker learning curve.Our online logo maker let you can create 2D logos made of vector graphics and you can even create 3D logos. Because of the object oriented design and the use of multiple layers, you can create logos made of several graphic elements that combined form a great looking, professional logo.
