Having a good well-thought-out portfolio website is imperative to succeeding as a designer.

I believe the best way of highlighting the importance of having a good portfolio website is by comparing it to a bad one, and that's exactly what we're doing in this video.

Having a bad portfolio can be detrimental to your client acquisition efforts because the first thing a client is going to want to explore upon meeting you is your portfolio website. If it can't sell you, as a person, and display your awesome skills, then people have nothing to go off of to hire you.

Use the two websites in this video to ensure you're on the right path with your design portfolio and maximizing your chances of getting hired.
