Hello you gorgeous little thing!

Firstly, you should know, I’m not an expert - I consider myself to still be an a fresh, new artist/designer starting out in the industry just like you!

Basically I think anything that displays your work concisely without a bunch of other stuff getting in the way is important. So using a personal Tumblr/blog as a portfolio, I do not recommend. You need to make it as easy as possible for people to access your work. This is why web portfolios are easy - the employer/client doesn’t need to download a file. However I’ve also been told that some clients aren’t comfortable clicking links. So maybe have both a PDF portfolio as well as a web portfolio ready to send when you’re asked for either or both.

I’ve had clients/manager figures use my Tumblr as a portfolio, and I know that I’ve gotten work from big commercial brands using Instagram, but this is just because I have quite a large following and update both of those every day. If you’re starting out from scratch I would use websites like 4ormat, SquareSpace or Cargo Collective. These platforms are made for creative portfolios and are a super simple and effective way to showcase your work in an efficient and professional way.

Another tip I have is to be selective with the work you put up. You want to give the viewer a sense of your artistic/creative essence - enough to tell them who you are, your skill set and what your about, but not too much to overload them with visual information. Put up a range of different works because diversity in style and skills make you more attractive to people looking to hire.

I have to go, but I really hope this helps.
(And to everyone who has messaged me in the past, I work really hard to give you quality answers which is why I can’t answer all of them at once, thank you all for being so patient and I hope I can get through my inbox and answer all your excellent questions eventually!)

Much love!
