Having a portfolio to showcase your work is important for many professionals. From designers to architects to landscapers, portfolios provide a space where you can show your best work, impress potential clients and land new business.

Creating Your Portfolio with WordPress
WordPress easily accommodates online portfolios. There are thousands of themes to choose from that can be customized to your needs, industry and audience. When organizing your portfolio, start with your purpose. Are you creating a job-seeking portfolio? Reputation portfolio? Multi-purpose portfolio?
As you organize your portfolio, keep your target audience in mind. Create clear sections that are easy to follow so that visitors can navigate your work and see its full potential. That said, don’t include all of the work you’ve done. Pick a few of your favorite projects from various categories so that you can show a well-rounded view of your work experience.
What to Include in Your Portfolio
Here is some of the information we feel is best to include in your portfolio:
People who hire you are not just doing so for your products and services – they’re also choosing to work with YOU! So introduce yourself, tell your audience who you are and what you do. Include a personal statement, resume, certifications and background. A professional headshot will also make your portfolio look more professional.
Highlight your best work. Show others what you can do, how you perfect your craft and how you distinguish yourself from others. Now is not the time to be humble. We’re not suggesting bragging, of course, but don’t hold back on showing off your talent and expertise.
Also be sure to include a contact page so that people know how they can reach you for work. Our web design team can use a WordPress theme with a built-in contact page or create a unique contact page using the block editor. Just let us know what you prefer! We can also include links to your social media pages, a map with clickable directions and more.
