A while back we’ve written about inspiring web design portfolios. Mainly we focused on the portfolios that introduce artists in one way or another. For instance those websites that come with a designer’s photo, collage or illustration.
That article has received a lot of positive comments and we’ve decided to make another post showing personalized web design portfolios.
As you look through these web design portfolios you’ll see web designers, at least you’ll have a basic idea of how they look like. Also, you’ll have a chance to see different approaches to portfolio development.
Web designer portfolio is a perfect way to showcase web designer works. It’s always of utmost importance. Poor web designer portfolios will hardly attract a lot of potential clients. I doubt either you or me will order design from a person whose portfolio doesn’t look professional enough; or in a case we are not keen on his/her previous creations.
For designer having a stunning portfolio is a chance to prove his talent and skills. Therefore most web designers show the greatest level of creativity when they design their portfolios. There are a lot of options for designers when it comes to portfolio websites. In one of our previous posts we’ve already shown some really impressive web designer websites. Today we’d like to list web designer portfolios that show their authors. Saying this we mean portfolios with the pictures of web designers.
Enjoy browsing incredibly attractive and inspiring web designer portfolios and meet famous web designers. If not in person, then in pictures. Probably some of these portfolios will give you bright ideas for your next projects.
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a web designer? As for me it’s talent, great web design skills, never-ending creativity, portfolio, original websites, extraordinary ideas, and etc. Web designers may or may not have advanced degrees. Many website designers are self-taught, starting on their own and learning design skills and design languages as they develop pages.
It’s not a secret that designers are considered to be extremely creative people. This post aims to review some of the most impressive web designer portfolios. Talented designers are always busy with someone else’s projects and we are going to see if the proverb “ever busy, ever bare” is a right one.
No doubt each web designer is like a trendsetter in the world of web design. So let’s see the way designers express themselves while they create their own websites. Do they follow any web design trends or they simply design the way they feel?
It’s time to browse websites made by web designers for web designers.
Creative web designers are always involved in different projects. Some time ago they had a chance to show their skills while taking part in the Nordic Art & Graphic Challenge 2008. This contest was running from September, 27 to November 22.
Designers from all over the world took part in the Nordic Art & Graphic Challenge 2008. Those who wanted to participate in this contest had to register over on the Addictive Hobby Forums and post their entries in the official contest thread. The main contest theme was Viking or Scandinavian mythology. So the participants were asked to illustrate the Scandinavian legends and myths about ancient heroes, gods, and the creation and destruction of the universe. Each participant could offer one work only but this work could be of any style. It was also mentioned that the artwork that took part in the contest should have been created within the last year and had to be wholly owned by the artist. The contest was judged by experienced and inspirational artists Philip Straub and Rob Chang.
Recently the winners of The Nordic Art & Graphic Challenge 2008 were announced.
The Nordic Art & Graphic Challenge 2008 offered a lot of useful prizes. It became possible thanks to the sponsors. The fist prize web template is offered by the main sponsor TemplateMonster.com. Those who took the second, third, fourth and fifth places will also get useful prizes such as graphics packs, texture packs, and etc.
This contest has shown that creativity should be awarded.
Rainbow looks so wonderful, don’t you agree? Websites which are decorated with rainbows always look optimistic. It seems rainbow adds something warm and bright to web design. So it’s often used by web developers who strive to build positive and attractive web sites.
Each rainbow color separately and some of them mixed together make web sites eye-catching and colorful. Rainbow can be found in a great number of sites. Some sites use rainbow images or rainbow graphics the others use rainbow elements. Rainbow navigation menu is also a warmly accepted web design choice.
Looking at the websites displayed in this post it’s easy to notice that rainbow is a very popular element in web design. It’s often used while creating web sites and website template.
