Crafting the Perfect “About” Page (Portfolio Site Pro-Tips Series)
- By: Wes McDowell
- Dec 29th, 2012
Since a graphic designer’s most valuable showcase of their work is the portfolio website, we thought it would be a great idea to do a series on how you can make the most of yours. In this, the first installment of the series, Wes, Mikelle and writing expert Kristen Fischer talk about what you can do to take your “about” page to the next level, so that your potential clients or employers can see you for the creative genius you really are. We go over what you should definitely include, what you should leave out, how to make your personality jump off the page, and how to entice visitors to take the next step once they have finished reading it.
In our listener question segment, we talk about how to best represent yourself on LinkedIn, and we hear from one listener who finds himself in a really, really bad work situation.
Please share your “about” page in the comments below. We would love to see what you’ve got!
