Professional Practice: Comparing my Portfolio

As my portfolio is in a state where I am happy with what is on there and what information and work it holds. I decided to compare my portfolio with other professionals that have a professional looking portfolio. To see if mine is in a professional state or if I need to improve it. While looking through various portfolios I noticed areas that I could improve and add to my mine.

  • Add poly count to some models
  • Show any complex texture sheets with albido, roughness and normal maps
  • Add logo watermark to work
  • Add some videos
  • Have some wireframe renders of models
  • Adds logos of software used

These are all very simple but effective ways of improving the look of my work and I will definitely add these and constantly update my portfolio.

Various portfolios I looked at had a simple design to showcase their work, with either tiled thumbnails of their work or long banners across the screen, this is how I have mine set out because I feel it allows the viewer to easily view the images and work without having to click a link first. When looking at specific pieces of work, I preferred it when all the images were on the screen when you scrolled down the page, as I was able to quickly view and see the images with ease. I wasn’t a fan on the slideshow style viewer were you pressed an arrow to see the next image. So I made sure my work is presented in a scroll style type of viewer.
