There are SO many different products out there that will help you build your portfolio. Here is subset of those that will help you showcase your work the best:
We recommend avoiding Wordpress. Use Webflow instead. It’s way better (we built this site on Webflow).
The one question to ask yourself when looking for a site builder is: Which product allows me to craft a quality portfolio in the least amount of time?
So, how do you select a site builder?
First, do you have experience using any site builders like the ones above (including those that aren’t listed)? If so, consider choosing one you know. It will save you learning time, allowing you to immediately start building your portfolio.
If you don’t have any experience with a site builder, start a free trial with 2 or 3 site builders. Then, if you haven’t already, draw one of your case study’s layouts on paper. Keep it very lo-fi. Just draw boxes to represent images and rectangles for text containers. You're trying to get a general idea of the layout you're aiming for.
Try each site builder with the layout as the main focus of your test. Can you build the layout that you drew? Does it render correctly for the mobile version?
In the end, it doesn’t matter what site you use to build your portfolio. The portfolio itself is what matters. Choose the builder you feel most comfortable with and allows you to build your portfolio the quickest.
That said, we don’t recommend using something like Behance or Dribbble to showcase your work. While you can use those platforms for feedback, they aren’t the method hiring managers and recruiters look for when scouting for new talent. Instead, you want an entire website dedicated to your work. These are far more memorable. You also want your website to be customizable so it feels unique and helps you stand out.
