Dribbble: a show and tell web application for designers

"Dribbble is a community of designers answering that question each day. Web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types share small screenshots that show their work, process, and current projects.

Dribbble is a place to show and tell, promote, discover, and explore design."

(Rich Thornett & Dan Cederholm)

Website and wiki self-publishing through Google Sites

"Google Sites makes it easy for anyone to create and manage simple, secure group websites. Getting started is easy, and there are a number of helpful templates. More than just a visual theme, site templates can include site structure and navigation, custom page templates, embedded gadgets, and more. Google Sites is powerful enough for a company intranet, yet simple enough for a family website."

Jim Carrey's Ludic Intervention

"Jim Carrey described it as 'the psychedelic landscape of my brain' and Jim Carrey Online members have called it 'amazing and fabulous, the weirdest one on the web.' Jim's website has finally landed and you won't have seen anything like it before."

Building Your Portfolio Website: Six Things to Never Do

"A portfolio website can be the perfect next source, and given the relative ease of creating one these days, they're rapidly becoming an expected part of any designer's self–marketing plan.

The problem is, they're so easy to get wrong. After listening to years of complaints about some of the visual garbage recruiters and seniors have had to sort through, I decided to seek some specific answers about what separates a job–winning portfolio site from a confusing mess.
As with so many things in design, and real life, getting a portfolio website right seems to be less a matter of what you do than what you don't. Compiling Miles' [staff designer at New York product consultancy] observations together with other comments I've heard over the years, a few clear prohibitions seem like a good place to start. Here are six of them:

1. Don't think you're a web designer unless you actually are.
2. Don't think you're a graphic designer unless you actually are.
3. Don't go nuts with the branding thing.
4. Don't write like a 12–year–old, or like a used car salesman.
5. Don't expect it to be perfect immediately.
6. Don't re–invent the wheel."
(Carl Alviani)
