I personally feel is the best way to utilize it as a graphic designer
when you click onto the hands you’ll be met with many many thumbnails or what I
feel is absolutely amazing work I could spend simply hours looking over
the work on this website but I don’t have that kind of time to spare you can
of course use a search option to search out specific work now I do have an
account on here but I’ve neglected it quite a lot and haven’t updated it in
years mainly due to the fact that I have my own portfolio website now I will show
you my method of using be honest instead of simply posting a single image
of your way I would advise you all to tell a story by showing progress of the
project showing different stages of the design and do things like close-ups this
example isn’t the best but you can see here I briefly share the logo
development stages as well as show the colors used in the design my second
example is a lot more relevant so here is a wax and sweet project that
I worked on last year right off the bat I give a brief description about the
project and I show the Pantone colors of the local design this to me looks
professional as we scroll down you’re going to see that I’ve showcased the
designs as well as showing off the typeface of the logo in a creative way
I’m going to talk you into Photoshop that was 1000 pixels wide and about ten
thousand pixels tall I then added all of these elements onto the design that I
uploaded it a behance this is my method for having a dope design for Behance
projects also I use the color scheme throughout the entire project to tie
everything together so this is the first portfolio platform for free that you can
