Here's a look at a couple of those portfolios.
Eli Arbreton loves design, but off the clock he is a rapper who goes by the name WiKid. He has produced lots of music, and has a mixtape out. He wanted to create a portfolio to showcase his music, list his upcoming shows, and tell you more about himself.
As you scroll, the top navigation bar is fixed at the top, and the body content changes--that's exactly the design Eli wanted. He loved these large high quality background images, but since he has yet to have his own photoshoot, he used images from his favorite music duo as placeholders.
Eli reviewed several musicians' portfolios to come up with his design. Next, he completed a mockup in Photoshop, then jumped on Sublime to dive into his HTML and CSS.
His next steps are to incorporate his own content - images and copy. He is also looking forward to adding links to his social media accounts. We think this is a really great start!
