I have been working full time for the government for the past few years, and have sort of fallen out of the loop, as it were. I decided it's about time that I create an online portfolio of my work and offer my services, but what I am wondering is what do the designers of Metafilter think is the best way to present your online portfolio?
When I say 'best way to present', what I mean is:
Do you think a client wants to see a clear and simple portfolio site, or do you think it's important to show off your creative flair and just go to town on it?
Do you think that a blog and social media links are crucial these days? What other little extras are important and expected in 2010?
How important is Flash now? Will I score more points if my site is made in Flash?
I've read this cool article
, but I'd like some more opinions.
One other thing that I can't seem to find much information about is the hand over of a website to your client...
Do you continue to maintain their site for an ongoing fee?
If not how do you give it to them to maintain themselves?
Does your client need Adobe Contribute?
