The key to a good Portfolio

Many are wondering what to do about their portfolios. Well, I have heard a lot of good tips and tricks for this area, mostly from my very talented ex-coworkers at Lockpick Entertainment.

By the way, congratulations David to the marrige!

Anyway, I wish to share my knowledge about this area, and feel free to add more tips and tricks in the comment section of this post.

 

Make stuff on your spare time!

By making stuff on your free time, you are not only creating content for your portfolio, but you are also showing that you are a driven spirit that likes to do stuff for the fun and not for the money. Believe me, this will eventually get you money anyway, if that's what you want.

This is suggestions of stuff that you can do on your spare time:

  • MODs
  • Games
  • Art
  • Code
  • Design
  • Blog?
  • anything!

 

Show your portfolio to the world!

What good is a portfolio  if you don't show it to anyone? Build a website and show what you can do and what you have done! It's important that the portfolio site is very clean och easy to understand. Show and tell only what is important to tell. My friend Claes has a very good portfolio site, which I looked a lot at when I created my own portfolio site.

Also, try to get a domain name for yourself. I suggest you go to www.domain.com and buy your own name as a domain. That's what i did with my www.joakimbergman.com, but you can also do what Claes did and have www.claeng.com, which actually is shorter and easier to write.

 

Well, that's all! Now, post your own tips and tricks if you wish!

  1. I tried www.sarawendel.com but a lousy photographer had that domain already, so it's www.sarawendel.se now. Not much there yet, must learn more html first.

  2. www.sarawendel.se isn't to bad either :P Especially if you'r aim is to work in Sweden.

    Btw, you don't need to learn HTML if you don't want to. I have a great tips for a website: Visit www.google.com/sites and register yourself for a google site. That's what I have and you can do very much without having to use HTML. Ofcourse they also allow you to use your own code if you want too. All this for free and you hardly get any advertisement from google at all. Only a small text "Powered by Google" that's hardly visible.
