Today I had a a tutorial with Mark and asked him to explain everything to me as I was feeling a bit confused and wanted to know what I needed to do. This tutorial really helped and I feel a lot more positive. He advised I make my physical portfolio a3. He also showed me his creative resume and explained what i needed to include in my careers database. He also told me to have a tutorial with an illustration tutor Chris this week as he feels Chris would know how to advise me.
Over the past few days I’ve been trying out three different websites to create my online portfolio; Wix, Cargo and Squarespace.
I did some research and had a look on a website called designbombs at the types of website that could be made using Wix and these were some examples:
I then had a go at using Wix myself:
They had a good choice of templates.
I felt like there wasn’t as much choice as Wix.
After a few days my free trial ended and so I decided to give up on my squarespace website as I don’t want to have to pay just yet.
I also tried using Cargo:
I really liked all the templates but found them hard to use !
I’m feeling a bit lost with making a website so I had a look at some examples of websites for inspiration.
I decided to look at some artists that I like and their websites.
I’ve been trying out various different website building websites. I’ve been playing around with Wix, Squarespace and Cargo. I’m finding making a website quite difficult.
