Designing My First Portfolio Website

pvcodes profile image Pranjal Verma ・1 min read

Hi guys, I'm planning to make a portfolio website for myself. But as you all know I'm been only 6 months for coding, So please could you give me some ideas for designing my portfolio. Till now I have a pretty good know of HTML, CSS and Basic JS also I have seen some JS library like jQuery, paper.js, anime.js

Also I have checked out https://www.awwwards.com/ but the website on this site are far away from my knowledge atleast for now.

At the end, please suggest me some good idea, so that i can approach it in good ways. Also I wanna tell you guys I will not be uploading site by purchasing a domain. For now i will be uploading it through NETLIFY.

              *Also Sorry For the Cover Thumbnail Clickbait*

Happy to hear that you're working on building your first Portfolio. Emily offered a great suggestion, looking for inspiration! Pinterest is one idea for sure, maybe you can conduct some research as well? Browsing through websites of some of your greatest influences, exploring well known sites of big companies, or stopping at sites that catch your eye while cruising the internet can be helpful as well. Do some exploring and see what grabs YOUR attention. Then implement.

Generally, people are drawn to minimalist designs (a little can go a long way), consistent branding, and organization. So if you nail those points, we're sure you'll come up with something great! At the end of the day, make it something that reflects you - your abilities, personality, creativity. It's okay that you're still learning, because most people are. Just play to your strengths! Best of luck :)

Pinterest is a good option to look for inspiration aswell. What you a an do is to write down everything you want on your site and then design when you know what you want :)
