Putting together an interior design portfolio is a crucial stepping stone in your career. It’s a declaration of your design philosophy, your opportunity to get your dream job, and it’s also a way for you to reflect on and learn from your previous projects.
It’s an important process, yes. But it does not have to take weeks of your life.
We talked to interior designers all around the world and saw an interesting pattern. There’s a certain notion that at a certain point in time, your interior design portfolio is finished.
Whereas it’s the exact opposite. Your portfolio is supposed to evolve as you and the world around you change.
How can you make a flexible portfolio in a fraction of the time without compromising on the quality of the end result? We have three tips for you.
First of all, look at interior design portfolio examples. This is step 0.
Examples help you see what worked for others, and what didn’t, so you won’t make the same mistakes. It gives you ideas on how to present your work, what, and how much to write about your projects, and what it takes to stand out from the crowd.
You couldn’t be in a better place for this step. Scroll above to see a plethora of layouts, project descriptions, colors, and fonts, and find what works for you.
These examples were created with recruiters and clients in mind. They are eye-catching, accessible, and easy to understand.
Our second tip is to take advantage of interior design portfolio templates. Some of us love, while some of us hate them, but there’s actually a right way to use templates and still end up with a beautiful and unique portfolio.
Use them for what they are perfect for (i.e. the dull stuff that’s actually important, such as consistent margins, white space, responsivity in websites, pagination), but bring your own style, creativity, and design philosophy to it.
Last, but definitely not least, opt for a flexible portfolio builder that’s user-friendly, easy to keep updated, and that’s future-oriented. What do we mean by the latter?
Just a couple of decades ago, a printed booklet was the only option to build a portfolio. Nowadays, PDFs seem to be the industry standard. But will that stay like that for long? We doubt it.
Building an interior design website is a must in the online world. Having a platform you have control over (unlike social media), where clients and employers can see your work and get in touch with you is essential.
We know you don’t have time to build multiple separate portfolios. That’s why we created Archifolio. It’s a portfolio builder specifically for interior designers and architects, who want to create a unique and memorable portfolio.
With Archifolio you can build your website, and then simply export it as a PDF. It’s flexible, extremely easy to use and you can get started for free, no credit card needed.
