The field of graphic designing is incomplete without a portfolio. As a graphic designer a portfolio is the most essential element of his professional life. A graphic design portfolio is basically a well-organized presentation of combination of artwork which encompasses all your best work in terms of graphics and designing. The portfolio of a graphic designer helps him/her present his talents in the best and most comprehensive way. So either you are a salaried designer seeking a job or a freelance graphic business owner looking for clients for your business, your portfolio can be your best and foremost call-to-action.
Your portfolio gives a deeper idea about the type of work and the quality you can produce. It is the best way to display your brochures, flyers, postcards, business cards and other communication material designs. So, composing a portfolio needs much thinking and insight. Elements like colors, layout, content and design etc. play significant role in determining the attractiveness of the portfolio.

As a web designer/developer, I’ve found that there exist several common (if not nearly universal) truths when it comes to clients. One of these is that they love to talk about functionality. I have had several clients whose initial approach when they contact me is to provide me with a complete list of functionality – in other words, a listing of what they think that their website needs to do.
What I tend not to get quite so often is a description of what the purpose of the site is.
To my way of thinking, that is a problem. Recently, I wrote an article entitled “HTML (and CSS) do not a Website Make,” in which I discussed some of the things that I thought constituted a website. Obviously, part of the argument that I make is that a website is more than just its HTML and CSS, and one of the areas that I touch on is the notion of purpose. I think that some of what I wrote there has an important bearing on what I want to discuss in this article, so instead of rewriting it, I will simply quote my original words:
Every website should have a purpose. It may be to inform potential customers about your business (probably one of the most common types of websites). It may be to function as an informational resource. It may be to connect people with other people. It may be to showcase yourself, or even simply to entertain. Whatever the purpose is, it is ultimately the core of the site, the nucleus around which everything else that we have looked at so far is ultimately wrapped. Sigue leyendo

We all know we should be doing more usability testing than we are. Fortunately there are some great tools available to make the job easier.
Every time I see Steve Krug’s book “rocket surgery made easy” I feel guilty. I know I should do more usability testing than I do, but somehow it never quite works out that way.
Steve is right when he says we should all be doing usability testing every month. He even makes it incredibly easy by reducing the number of participants to only three people per month. Yet even this we struggle to do.
However I have learnt one valuable lesson from my disastrous DIY experiments. If you have the right tools the job it is a lot easier. In my experience this applies as much to usability testing as to DIY. Fortunately these days there are some amazing tools available and I’ve listed my favourites below. Be sure to check them out.
