A selection of some of my favourite portfolio website examples. Showcasing a broad range of portfolio website styles for inspiration and reference.
A very impressive, different, and fun portfolio website by Bruno Simon, created using three.js for the 3D and cannon.js for the physics. (My students really enjoyed finding the hidden Easter-eggs).
This portfolio website is quite old now but it is still an example of a great portfolio website that is atmospheric and interactive with a unique style. – It is a Flash website though, so it may be tricky to view these days depending on your browser. At the time of writing I was able to run it smoothly in Firefox.
I like to show this website to my students as a great example of a masonry layout. Marta’s design work is also brilliant. I really like the way this website overviews her work on the home page with short descriptions of the projects.
Acko – Steven Wittens
I really like the unique interface and intro animation on Steven Witten’s Acko site. I think it is a good example of a blend between 3D (using three.js) and your more traditional, easy to navigate website structure.
As far as artists’ websites go I think this site is one of the most elegant I have come across.
I have been a big fan of Paul Neave’s work for years. A nice clean portfolio website with some cool subtle effects.
*Update: Unfortunately this site has been updated, however the original site for Blu Blu featured a fantastic book concept, – a somewhat clunky but refreshing take on a portfolio website. You should be able to find it on the Internet Archive prior to 2020.
Atmospheric, interactive and unique. (Also using three.js)
A nice modern site with a clean layout and subtle parallax and animation effects.
I really like this site as a great example of the use of images. You really get a feel of stepping into the world of Martin Sati’s amazing work.
Another relatively different website that showcases the 3D art really well. The 3D view is awesome if you happen to have a pair of the old school 3D glasses handy.
