This is an online portfolio for a photographer. The layout shows that this person does a variety of different types of photography such as commercial, fashion, portraits and so on. The layout is easy and simple by using labels with a photo. This menu is also in the navigation bar which makes it easy to scan through each category. This website is reaching out to potential clients such as women, for weddings to commercial photography and businesses. I am not sure on how much I like the variety in this persons range in photography because I think the client would want to know what the photographer may be better at. I like that the site is set up in the categories that must be clicked on to see the photos unlike most sites that have a never ending scroll bar, its give the viewer a chance to pay attention to the photos.

From the moment you first arrive on Attitude Designs website, it clearly states that they specialize in providing graphic design solutions. They use large color blocking to highlight their services which consist of website design, branding, marketing materials and digital media.

Their target audience would be anyone in need of marketing/print design, logo/brand design, or website design of any kind. The clean design of the site makes it easy to see what services they offer and to contact them via any of their services pages.

Their portfolio is set up so when you arrive on the page you can view a variety of projects from all of the services they offer. You can also sort projects by each individual service they offer if you are looking for a specific media. It is very easy to navigate through the portfolio and is well laid out for it's target audiences convenience.

They provide a lot of helpful information about each piece in the portfolio. They include the client and a brief description about them, project features (list of services provided i.e.logo design, brand identity, website design etc.),a sample of pieces created for the project and a little bit about the collaboration and design process of the project. They also include a quote from the client as well. It makes them seem very organized and well qualified in what they do.

This site illustrates that the designer is very well organized, and has a strong understanding of the elements of design. The color scheme is consistent throughout the site. The colors primarily consist of varying hues of muted colors, with a moderate amount of contrasting colors. The heavy header and large thumbnails allow the website to be well balanced, and the layout of red highlights in the header effectively creates smooth visual hierarchy from the top of the website, down to his portfolio pieces. The target audience he's trying to reach is both small and large businesses who are looking for a clean, modern and professional website and business identity. His designs range from websites and logos to letter heads and printable leaflets. I think he does an excellent job of appealing to his target audience, because his site and designs are modern, clean and easy to navigate. He also provides several examples of his work, which allows potential customers to get a strong understanding of his design style. The layout of his portfolio displays large thumbnails, which are well balanced and easy to navigate. I believe this layout is successful in appealing to his target audience because it is both well organized, and has a very modern feel to it. This designer does a good job of providing adequate information about each of his portfolio pieces. When you click on a thumbnail, a larger preview appears which provides a brief description of the subject matter and the work he contributed to each project. Below that are several images of each page of a site he's designed, as well as how the appear on mobile devices. He also displays images of graphic work he's created for both web and print design. The only thing I would change about his site is how the larger previews are displayed when you click on a thumbnail. When you click on a thumbnail, the preview of his work appears directly below the row of thumbnails, bumping everything below it further down. Since a lot of his projects consist of multiple designs, this method of displaying his work forces the viewer to scroll a long distance both down to view his displays and up to return to the initial thumbnail that's being previewed. There's two solutions I'd consider make previewing his work more efficient. The first is to add some arrows to the right side, which will allow the viewer to jump up and down large sections of the page faster, and the seconds is to change the layout of the larger previews, so they're aligned horizontally rather than vertically. By changing the layout to a horizontal view the user won't have to scroll a up and down a substantial amount, which in-turn will encourage them to thoroughly inspect each component of the projects that are being displayed.

This site showcases the designers skill on a layout that reflects his design style and the attitude he projects. It is fun, organized, and positive. Since he is a freelancer, his target audience is very broad. He markets himself to anyone in need of print designs from logos and flyers as well as web designs. Most of his work is contemporary, so modern businesses are more likely to be attracted to him. The portfolio is very nicely organized. It is easy to navigate between pages and sub sections within the pages provide loads of details and information. The amount of work he includes is tremendous, yet it is easy to look for a specific type of work. Since the website is laid out so nicely, it gives the viewer confidence in his ability to create a functional design. The designer offers many examples of work in a variety of different media. He covers printed designs, web designs, illustrations, branding, and motion graphics. He uses a lot of negative space for his website layout. If I created it, I would tighten it up a little bit, but he makes it work in this case.

This site is an online blog and portfolio for a web designer. The site shows the skill of the designer by the illustrations included throughout the pages as well as the simple and easy to use layout and navigation. The color scheme is consistent and fits well with the theme. The designer is trying to reach two audiences, one being potential clients and the other being people getting into the field themselves. His site contains a blog and tutorial sections that go over things anyone could want to know. While his portfolio and about page reaches out to potential clients showing off his skills. His clients range from people wanting graphics, logos, and websites. The portfolio page organization is consistent and easy to use, all linking to the external site that he either coded or designed. This suits his target audience because it allows them to test the quality of his work themselves. Each project listed in his portfolio lists the date posted, programs used such as photoshop, and code he wrote such as Jquery, CSS3, and HTML5. The only thing I'd do differently is rework the navigation bar at the top of the page. The rest of the page is very light colored and fun, but the top is dark and seems out of place compared to the rest. It is somewhat helped by having the sidebar dark as well, but it feels disconnected from the rest of the page.

This design shows they can do logo/design/development. All of the links tell what they completed on that specific entry. I feel like people between 25 and 45 would be drawn to this person. I believe he is achieving his goal target audience because it is not totally out of the box but not mundane either. The portfolio is organized in a logical manner that makes sense. I believe the organization of his portfolio fits his target audience because the alignment is great, the proximity works well and it is organized logically. I would take the lion off the bottom of the page because it doesn't seem to fit well. It seems out of place to me.

This is actually a combination of a few photographer's portfolios. The Art Partner is a Photographer Agency and they sell each artist's work equally. This portfolio set up allows you to view the range of each artist by photography genera. Each artist has a different category for each portfolio and each one is full of their absolute best and current works. Being that this is an agency with a wide range of photographers, the demographic is much wider. The primary demographic is commercial editorial advertisements. They're successful in reaching their audience by showing their work in a well laid out and organized online portfolio. The organization of the portfolio is effective because it's straight and to the point. The information on each piece is limited because most of the work itself is self explanatory to their audience. I wouldn't change anything about the design of the portfolio except maybe having them add my name to their list of artists once I'm as amazing as any of them!
