Beautiful Portfolio Sites

I am by no means an expert on websites or the design of them, not by a long shot. But I do know what I like. I have gathered together a collection of my favourite company/portfolio sites for your viewing pleasure. Let me know what you think of my choices.

MetaLab

This is pretty much what I love to see in websites. Some great javascript animation, clean and concise design and lots of well defined corners. Bonus! All of the things they designed have a similar look so it’s enjoyable looking through their work.

OH! Media

Why do I like this you ask? Well, it has the similar things going for it as the last site. It has some great use of gradients and subtle lines around elements to add that extra bit of visual eye candy. Also, it has the classic javascript scrolling effects, which seem to be a must have on modern web design portfolios. I can’t blame them at all. It’s really effective.

Paul Saunders Design and Development

If you know about a sketch comedy website called LoadingReadyRun then you know about Paul Saunders. For a long time I myself followed Paul Saunders’ style of designing websites until my I managed to get some inspiration of my own. We all have to start somewhere. I like Paul Saunders’ site as it has a simple and colourful look, the logo has a painted style which looks very nice against the title. When we go into the main web portfolio we can see that his sites are laid out nicely and we can see multiple pictorial examples of each. It’s not as technically complex as the previous 2 but Still doesn’t lack because of it.

Bartelme Design

Found out about this site after admiring the design of the MacHeist  site. This site makes a great use of colours, gradients and highlighted edges to showcase the designer’s work. Not only does this contain the portfolio but it also contains the blog which is interactive with comments.

There’s so many more great portfolios out there but here are just some of my favourites that stand out in my mind. When I find some more I will blog about them too.
