Portfolio research

I have been looking at various online portfolios of work and looking how they are set up and what other professionals include in their portfolios.
Here are a few portfolios I looked at:
http://myleslambert.co.uk/ – long single page portfolio website consisting of many renders of models and textures. Very simple design
http://www.lukeadwick.co.uk/ – Multiple page site that looks professional and smart, with multiple pages linking to the artists professional work and personal work, including short info about the project and renders of models and textures.
http://stevenskidmore.com/ – Includes many pages to his professional and personal work with renders and textures of his environment and models. Also links to his resume and some tutorials he has created.
http://christofferradsby.com/ – simple design with square image links of the artists work, with a title pop up when you hover over the image. Also has a simple link design to the artists facebook, twitter and email links. There is also a page with info about the artist, but this acts like a resume in a way.
http://www.clintoncrumpler.com/74261/portfolio – This artist has a personal logo that would be recognisable to this artist. The design of the portfolio is simple, with worded links along the left hand side to his resume and resources as well as image links to his work.
http://www.environmentartist.com/ – Another simple design of a long page of rendered images, with links along the top directing the viewer to other pieces of work, resume, videos, blog and Facebook. The links are brightly coloured with no fancy detail, just coloured letters.
http://www.littlelostpoly.co.uk/portfolio/ – This portfolio is hosted on WordPress using a custom url. The design is simple in look but has quite detailed information about the entries. It has many images of his work in a slideshow format so the images don’t take up as much room.
Logos – the logos on many of these portfolios are just the artists name and job role after it. For example Reece Harrison – Environment Artist
These all include a contact number and an email address too.

Below are some portfolio websites that are a good example of showcasing work for any future employers and companies to look at.

http://www.wordpress.org
http://www.carbonmade.com
http://www.portfoliobox.net

As I don’t have any knowledge of creating my own website to showcase my work, I will most probably go with one of these websites.
