As I'm working on the development of my website I have collected some sites that I admire and some nice postings about portfolio development that I think are worth noting here.
I like the design of the following sites:
wilson minor Beautiful simplicity, nice use of color and great modern logo.
mr. diggles I like how the about functions on this site.
giant creative I like the "sliding" portfolio pages.
frank chimero I like the simplicity of the navigation and the content of his pages.
I like how type is handled in the following links:
jon tangerine I like the footer design here as well.
matt bango I like how the thumbs are presented.
Liking the "feel" of these sites:
