Your portfolio can be called a works gallery, a portfolio or your projects. They are all a way to prove you can do what you say. Underestimate this at your peril.

Challenges you face with your website gallery

These are important to consider when updating and creating yours.

  • Your website visitors have short attention spans so won’t read loads

  • Keeping it updated can be a pain and easily forgotten
