The Latest Design Trends in the Portfolios of Web Designers

The portfolio design of a web designer is an ever-evolving process of redesign after redesign. It is their portal to prospective clients and employers and thus has to, in itself, show off the web designer’s wide-range of skills while pushing the boundaries of the latest design trends.

This area of web design is of particular importance to the overall aesthetic of the web and can give great insight into the direction that the current web design trends are taking.

Today, we’re going to take a look at some of the most recent web designer portfolio trends and showcase examples which implement these trends highly effectively.

Resume-Style Portfolios

Until recently, there was considerable focus on imagery on web designer portfolio sites. Now we see a shift towards more resume-style portfolios where the portfolio is a set of links to live products, projects, or previous companies.

Diagonal scroll

Gone are the days of horizontal scrolling, and in its place is a far more usable alternative: diagonal scrolling. You can test it out here. A simple vertical scroll results in images that move diagonally across and up the screen, resulting in some lovely visual effects. It feels natural, sophisticated, and will no doubt catch on as the second half of 2017 nears ever closer.
