Your online portfolio is probably the most important tool you have to sell yourself to potential clients. Its a first impression that can make or break you, so you had better make it good. Here are 10 awesomely creative portfolio sites that strike a perfect balance between creativity, simplicity and professionalism. Here they are, in no particular order:

SylvainOllier

This French graphic designer/illustrator/art director’s site is simple to the extreme. When the work is this whimsical and eye-catching, who needs a complicated design?

DavidAyllon

Quirky use of color and a faux die-line make for an interesting canvas to show off this illustrator/designer’s work.

AlexeyMasalov

Simple, elegant and black and white, this design lets the work shine on its own.

JONINITIATIVE

This web design uses a rigid grid, fun bands of color and great typography as a showcase for a good variety of work.

Graphicurry

Working with a non-traditional layout can be a kiss of death when not handled properly. In this case, however, it lets the work shine while keeping users engaged.

AustinDesignGuy

Can a website be simple and dramatic? Well this one has pulled it off pretty nicely.

NinaRichards

Clean, elegant design seems to be Nina’s specialty. It comes across in her work, her logo and in the site itself.

EstiloDLT

This fashion designer’s portfolio site uses a bold, graphic layout, strong typography, and social media strategy to his advantage.

DedaBain

I am in love with Deda’s fun retro typography and use of clever infographics to tell her story. And bonus points for the parallax scrolling effect!

JohnHemsley

This UI/Web designer makes great use of a simple, one page design. He uses big graphics and bigger social media links to make an impact.
