20 Greatest New Portfolios, February 2019

Welcome again, Readers! It’s February, and I don’t assume I’ve a single pink or chocolate-themed website wherever within the combine. Ah properly…

I actually shouldn’t have typed that. Now I wish to both eat some peanut-butter and chocolate goodies, or base a design on that coloration scheme. I in all probability will.

Anyway, we’ve acquired a typically blended bag of portfolios so that you can try, with quite a lot of aggressively monochromatic designs in there. Get pleasure from!

Notice: I’m judging these websites by how good they give the impression of being to me. In the event that they’re inventive and authentic, or basic however actually well-done, it’s all good to me. Generally, UX and accessibility undergo. For instance, many of those websites rely on JavaScript to show their content material in any respect; this can be a Dangerous Concept™, children. If you happen to discover an concept you want and wish to adapt to your individual website, keep in mind to implement it responsibly.


Rob Weychert

Rob Weychert’s portfolio is probably not new as such, however I simply discovered it… and possibly ought to have discovered it sooner. He was a designer at Pleased Cog, and is now at ProPublica, so it is best to anticipate earthy tones and implausible typography. He sells his experience principally by way of his consumer checklist and his in depth weblog, utilizing the “go have a look at my work, it’s tremendous well-known” method to advertising.

Properly, it really works.

Platform: Static Web site (so far as I can inform)



Transatlantic Movie Orchestra

The Transatlantic Movie Orchestra do precisely what you assume they do. Music for video. And on their web site, they do it proper: no music performs whenever you load the location. All you get is a peaceful, darkish, and monochromatic one-page portfolio.

I do notably just like the implementation of the audio gamers, although. The Morse code, the grainy photographs, all of it works.

Platform: WordPress



Ramon Gilabert

Ramon Gilabert’s portfolio brings us a relaxing and basic minimalist design mixed with some beautifully-used SVG graphics. Thoughts you, it’s a little bit complicated whenever you click on on the “social” hyperlink within the navigation, because the social hyperlinks are virtually hidden on the backside, on the suitable, and on their facet. In any other case, it’s a gorgeous and charming design.

Charlie Grey

Charlie grey’s portfolio is stuffed with cinematic-looking pictures and Hollywood celebrities, so this structure that appears like a cross between {a magazine} structure and a PowerPoint is definitely proper on the cash. I’d nearly be disenchanted if a website like this wasn’t loaded down with a bit an excessive amount of JS.

In the long run, it’s the photographs that promote the whole lot anyway.

Platform: WordPress



Jordy van den Nieuwendijk

This portfolio is just about an artwork gallery, and it embraces the theme with a full-screen slideshow on the house web page, a number of white area, and monospaced kind. It’s a basic method and it maintain up properly on this case.

Platform: Static Web site



Atelier Florian Markl

Atelier Florian Markl has taken the inherent “blockiness” of net design and completely run with it. The theme of the day is rectangles and daring colours. You may need a tough time seeing something, however as soon as your eyes modify to the glare, you received’t overlook this extremely modernist design in a rush.

Platform: Joomla



Nathan Mudaliar

Nathan Mudaliar’s copywriting portfolio is probably not the fanciest on the market, however it’s a grasp class in showcasing your work creatively. There’s a form of conversational little bit of UI the place he showcases his work in numerous “voices”, interactive examples of his copywriting methods, and extra.

It’s a bit laborious promote, maybe, however you possibly can’t argue with outcomes.

Platform: WordPress




Okalpha goes proper for shiny colours and pseudo-3D graphics to catch your consideration. Truthfully, they’re utilizing the identical colours and shapes folks have been utilizing on us since we have been toddlers, so why wouldn’t it work? Barely kid-ish or not, I believe it really works.

Platform: Customized CMS (In all probability)



Makoto Hirao

Makoto Hirao’s portfolio is ticking a whole lot of containers for me, together with nice kind, good use of images, and a horizontal dwelling web page structure that I truly actually like, and that feels intuitive.

Platform: Static Web site



The Sweetshop

The Sweetshop, being a video manufacturing firm, naturally places a whole lot of video entrance and heart with the darkish structure you’d anticipate. Besides, their typography recreation is surprisingly robust, and there’s not a serif in sight. Even their press releases look fairly.

Platform: WordPress



Noughts & Ones

Noughts and Ones is one other company that’s sticking to their theme, with their branding being a giant a part of their website’s aesthetic. Apart from that, it’s fairly basic minimalism. I personally adore their footer.

Is {that a} bizarre factor to say?

Platform: Squarespace



Margaux Leroy

If I needed to describe Margaux Leryo’s portfolio—and I do, that’s my job—I’d name it a fusion of ‘90s period futurist design with extra trendy traits. It’s darkish, it’s modern, and a few of the textual content could be a little bit too small and low-contrast.

Why did we expect textual content could be that small sooner or later anyway? Did we expect everybody would have augmented eyes?

Anyway, flaws apart, it seems implausible.

Platform: Static Web site (so far as I do know)



Julia Kostreva

Julia Kostreva’s portfolio retains it easy with some pseudo-asymmetry and gentle tones. As a branding designer, she lets that branding work do, properly, many of the work. And it really works.

Kolaps has a decidedly modernist design that feels without delay very “business-friendly” and fairly eye-catching. It’s basic minimalism come again once more with a contact of sci-fi futurism and particle results.

Platform: Customized CMS (I believe)

Platform: Static Web site


Jordan Sowers

Jordan Sower’s portfolio is one other artsy one which form of mimics the artwork gallery aesthetic a little bit. Nonetheless, it’s fairly. It’s attention-grabbing in that it capabilities as a portfolio and a retailer on the identical time, however the retailer is saved nearly hidden except you truly click on a hyperlink to purchase one thing. It’s a retailer with out the laborious promote, and so it’s free to be inventive in its personal proper.

Platform: Static Web site




And ending off our checklist we’ve one other monochromatic design with Heller. It’s trendy, it’s fairly, and it has an attention-grabbing method to the collage patterns we see in all places. This one is certainly going for a futurist really feel, even because it’s grounded within the traits of yester-month.

I just like the horizontal swipe-in animation they use for photos. I imply, when you’re going to animate the whole lot, why not give it that Star WarsTM really feel?
