It’s that time again, readers. We’ve got a variety of sites, here: presentational and simple, colorful and nearly monochromatic.

20 Best New Portfolio Sites, February 2018

Hey everyone! It’s February, and you know what that means: Hallmark executives get bonuses! Also, people make a special effort to show love and affection to those they care about, which is cool too.

And it’s here! January 2018 has arrived in all its cold, cold glory, and I just spent the first few days of it looking at portfolio sites. I do it all for you, dear Readers. I do it all for you. This month doesn’t have a particularly specific theme, unless you count pretty much every… Read More

20 Best New Portfolio Sites, October 2017

19 Best New Portfolio Sites, July 2017

Hello WDD Readers. It’s July, and is it hot in here, or is it just these awesome portfolios?

20 Best New Portfolio Sites, June 2017

Welcome readers, it’s June, and the Brutalism bug is back. No, really. After disappearing into the phenomenon I called “post-minimalism”, plain old Brutalism seems to be making a comeback.
