My new portfolioBy lawrence • Jul 10th, 2011 • Category: Articles, Daily Shots
After trying a half dozen different sites for managing a portfolio, I finally settled on one, committed to it and my new site is now live.
In the end, I opted for Viewbooks. These guys seem to have the best balance between professional layout, tools, price and so on. Others I considered included zenfolio, pixelpost, 500px.com, custom wordpress themes, livebooks, smugmug and probably a couple more I can’t remember. I also made several starts to code one myself in silverlight, php and various other tools which I later abandoned due to lack of time. I’m v happy with Viewbooks so far. They’ve had a few technical problems in the last couple of days but the site is clean, easy to use and has just enough flexibility to make it pretty powerful. I think they really strike the right balance and are going to continue to get better over time.
