A few tips from Will Moir on creating the perfect online portfolio.

1. Work should be the priority

Your site has one main purpose, show off your work. Don't spend months creating an amazing website if you don't have any work to put on it. A simple website that's easy to update is best. Then you can focus on your work. 

2. Allow for easy navigation

Homepage, Work, About, Contact. These are the most important pages you can have. They get everything you need across. Plus people know exactly what they mean and what they'll find if they click through.
