Weekly Round Up: Online Portfolios

I am currently taking a Web Design Class! One of the assignments this week is to look up some well designed online portfolios! And I decided to share some of my favorites with you! (I will post my online portfolio when I am done with mine!)

This first portfolio is my favorite of all of the ones I looked at! It was designed and coded by Alexey Chernishov! He did an excellent job with making his content easy to access and I suggest you check him out!!

The second is ANOTHER of my favorites. The portfolio belongs to Kevin Lucius and the content is simply presented beautifully!

The third (and final) portfolio for this post belongs to Soft. Although I can’t read the portfolio because it is not in english, I really like how you can hover over the four images on the home page to make them color!

Please go and check out the portfolios above and give the designers some love, they all do great work and deserve some recognition!

Lastly I have some bonus content for you all! If you are a graphic designer looking to create your own Online Portfolio check out this video by Karen Kavett! (She is simply amazing!)

This post was inspired by Day 23 of Zero to Hero!


Why I started this blog…


I didn’t have a specific post in mind. I want a creative space. (Yes I am now basically EVERY social media website; see my social media page or click the three little lines ALL the way at the top of this page to see my Instagram and Twitter)

I joined because of Zero to Hero. Well kind of…

My partner wanted to do it. But who really sticks to these kind of challenges if you don’t have someone to make you accountable?

So we’re doing it together! It’s going to be hard; it’s going to be tough; but it will be fun.

I’m hoping this turns into a creative space but we’ll see… I’m open to ideas

Me In a Nutshell

Well… Where to start…

I truly think the hardest thing in the world is to write about yourself…

Well here goes nothing….

I’m a student.

I think that defines me most. For as long as I can remember I have been going to some kind of school (ever since I was four!) Something unique about my schooling is I have only ever attended school in one town, my hometown.

I’m a Graphic Designer. (In training)

I am currently majoring in Graphic Design. I truly love the field. I love being able to express my creative side. But I don’t know if this will be my career (see below;)

I’m a Resident Adviser. 

I am currently a Resident Adviser on my college campus. And to be honest? I LOVE it! It has gotten me thinking maybe a career in Student Affairs could be a good idea for me… We shall see…

I’m a crafter.

Pinterest is my second home. I LOVE making things for other people, or even just myself! I love making something with my hands (or with a machines help and seeing the results!

I’m a photographer.

This started when I was VERY young; and is kind of in my blood. My Grandma went to Photographer school when she was my age in Germany. My whole family has ALWAYS taken photos and I LOVE Instagram. (My accounts: @mamamurray and @nofilterkaylin)
