How to build an online portfolio?

I want to build a personal portfolio so my questions related are as follows:

  1. What should I include in the portfolio apart from Home, About, Work, Contact?
  2. I have never worked on any real life examples so what to display in the work/portfolio page?
  3. What kind of design samples do I need to include? Ex: Website, Logo, Banner etc

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer

What should I include in the portfolio apart from Home, About, Work, Contact?

That is not a portafolio. That is the CV. Be carefull on publishing adresses on a web page if it is not a business adress.

I have never worked on any real life examples so what to display in the work/portfolio page?

Display what you have done, you can not show what you have not done… I know, lame answer, but a profund one.

What kind of design samples do I need to include? Ex: Website, Logo, Banner etc.

Ok I am going more serious this time. Take a look at this question: Whose persona should I consider while designing my portfolio?

You are a seller of your work.

  • What do you want to sell?

  • What product you have?

  • What product you do not have but want/plann to produce and sell?

I personally do not give a hoot :o) if a great image, logo, web template is not used by a real business. If it is good it is good. So my answer is: prepare a good work.
