Hi! I’m Tobias van Schneider. I’m the co-founder of Semplice, a portfolio tool by designers for designers. We’re teaming up with Abduzeedo to share inspiring design portfolios each month. Here we’ll curate the best online portfolios from art directors, graphic designers, artists, illustrators, and more – all created from scratch using Semplice.
In lieu of the standard hero photo and introduction, Cori Corinne takes a unique approach on her homepage. This sets the tone for her website, a quirky and refreshing experience the whole way through.
Scrolling Robert Rurans’ homepage provides a perfect overview of his work, but his case studies are the highlight. Every case study is customized to fit the work with complementary background and text colors, a simple yet smart choice that makes this site memorable.
Christina Michelitsch’s site feels high-end and sleek from the start. Crisp images contrast beautifully with the black background, while playful thumbnail hovers show personality.
Compared to the full-screen videos and images that are popular for portfolios, Dorm’s site design is unexpected. Clean lines, symmetry and artful use of white space lend a confident vibe to this portfolio.
Georg Schober’s site is nothing more or less than it needs to be. A 4-corner navigation along with visual hover animations make it decidedly modern without distracting you from the most important part: the work itself.
