What Makes a Great Designer?
It’s the beginning of a brand new year. This signifies for many a time to change habits and behaviors and attempt to be a better person. It’s a time where people like to re-evaluate their lifestyles and try to remove the gunk. It’s a time where people become motivated to be better at whatever they do.
As designers, we are no different. Some of us want to start a business or dive deep into the life of full-time freelancing. Some of us want to seek recognition for our work and some of us just want to learn a new skill. Whatever it may be, we are all motivated and trying to figure out ways to go from good to great.
7 Vital Elements of a Good Web Design Portfolio
How do you show prospective design clients what you can do?
The best way to show clients what you can do is to show them what you’ve already done. Direct them to your online portfolio.
If you’re a new freelance web designer, creating an online portfolio is one of the very first things that you need to do.
Why you need to keep your site updated
Maintaining a website means consistently applying changes to keep up with the latest online trends and technology to be able to provide the best user experience.
Many companies focus more on how to get traffic to their websites. Ideally, this traffic will be converted into business. However, if your website is not updated, there’s a good chance that it will not perform properly with the current technology and may cause visitors to leave your site even before they had the chance to see your products and get to know your brand.
The bottom line is to not keep yourself locked into the past. Learn to explore, experience and well, be open to changes because it’s the only way to go.
