Using The Graphics Creator daily, I often find myself creating folders of unique designs.
Today, I was thinking of creating a portfolio and putting all of the images online. I wasn't quite sure where I could post my graphics tho, so I sat down to map out my plan.
The first step to making your work look professional is finding a niche and specializing in it. Once you've mastered the nuances of that design style, people will be more inclined to hire you for future projects. Be consistent with the quality of your work so they can build up trust in by what they see from you online or on social media platforms like Instagram as well! Finally, network with other designers, artists and creatives by following their accounts on Twitter or Facebook; this way if an opportunity pops out where two companies are looking for a designer who specializes in logos/branding then there'll already be established contact between them which opens doors quicker than had both been cold-calling at random.
Niche yourself to the design world by creating a portfolio that is all your own. There are many ways you can start, but one of the simplest steps would be starting an Instagram account and posting designs there for people who may want them in their grow space or on other pieces they have outside of it. Build up good relationships with others online so when someone needs some new art work done, everyone knows where to come!
Here are some tips to make your work stand out. Follow these guidelines, and you'll be well on the way to a stellar portfolio!
