30 Amazing Freelance Designer Portfolios

Working according to one’s own will have its fair share of pluses and minuses. A freelancer is a free bird but just like a bird she/he has to search out for food on his own and is not spoon fed by its owner, in this case employers. They have to keep updating their portfolios so that new clients keep pouring in and there is not a slump in the demand for their work. In order to do this, freelance portfolios must show the skills and work life of the professional in the best possible way.

Freelancers are, most of the times, busy, listening and catering to the demands and needs of their clients and they forget that their own portfolio needs a revamp. Designing for others is part of their work but when it is about doing the makeover of one’s own self, the job can become a task. Here we have put on display 30 freelance portfolio designs that have been cherry picked from a vast array of samples. They are here to help you in grooming your professional façade. Have a look and bring out the cool delights to your portfolio too.

    All creative but if it came down to a vote Kerem would win. His site makes you want to stay and find out more. Good grief even his dog Lola has her own blog!

    Great inspiration, and a horrible wake up call. Sometimes I feel like I need a job stacking boxes somewhere. Looking at these, it sort of feels like I’ve run out of fuel for design.
