Design Portfolio Review Overview

Ready for another portfolio review? Today I'm looking at Talar's design portfolio website and discussing how to help improve and elevate it.

One suggestion is simplifying the homepage by clarifying your header and offerings. I also advise focusing projects on showcasing her best work together rather than organizing by skill buckets.

Additionally, I recommend expanding her project pages into more comprehensive case studies. This allows her to demonstrate process, strategy, and results. More robust project pages make the work shine.

I also push refining page alignments, spacing and layout on her project pages.

Finally, I encourage highlighting just her top 3 stellar projects as in-depth case studies on her site. A focused presentation of her best work will leave a stronger impression.With these updates focused on layout, project organization, case studies, and highlighting her best work, Talar's portfolio will feel much more refined, focused and impactful. Let me know if you have any other questions!
