Building a Portfolio in WordPress Grand Rapids

What are clients looking for in your portfolio?

Presented by Andrea Napierkows­ki

  • Clients want to see themselves in your portfolio
  • Less is more: don’t overwhelm people
  • Make it easy to find the info they’re looking for (your portfolio, your phone number, etc.)
  • Be uniquely you
  • Use colors carefully; for example, blue and greens are generally more calming than reds, oranges, and yellows, which can be alarming
  • Be funny, and joke as appropriate to your clients
