Online Portfolio

There are many different ways to go about creating your online portfolio. There is no wrong way and all the different ways can create a website that showcases your work. It’s just like a portfolio book, it’s the work that speaks for itself. That said, if you want to improve your web skills and/or show them off, then you might want to put a little more into it.

Here are some steps we will take to create our online portfolios:
