One of the best ways to tell if an artist or graphic designer really has what it takes is to check out his or her own website. It’s on the website that you can see the attention to detail, the artist’s personality, and you can even view portfolios to judge just how good they really are. And sometimes a website can look incredible but the artist’s work for brochure or postcard printing is less than desirable, which probably means the website was designed by someone else.
This collection of incredible website designs focuses on those designed by or for artists/ graphic designers. Notice how these sites do (or do not) highlight the strengths of each designer. Do you think the portfolios match the sites?
