The 3 Best Blog Platforms to Host Your Online Portfolio

Having an online portfolio separate from your social media accounts is an imperative component in landing fashion gigs. However, not all website building platforms offer the tools you need to create an eye catching portfolio that will best represent you and your work. Besides the obvious Squarespace – our fav and many others – here are our top 3 favorite platforms for creating unique portfolios:

  • Wix is a fan favorite due to its 500+ template designs, and 40 of these are specifically for portfolio building. Using this platform, you have the ability to arrange your content exactly as you please, and it allows you to customize your site’s mobile view too. Additionally, their gallery feature is the perfect place to compile and sell your work in an easy to navigate and eye catching space.
  • Weebly is a perfect platform for artists to utilize because it offers a portfolio builder function specifically designed for portfolio websites, rather than just portfolio themes and templates. The platform is easy to use and allows you to switch templates freely.
  • Jimbo, while not as well-known as other competing platforms, is another great choice for building your online portfolio. Their artificial intelligence interface, Jimbo Dolphin, can assist you in building your site in just minutes. However, if you prefer to have more control in the creation process, you can utilize their free templates to customize your portfolio layout.

All of these platforms offer great free subscriptions with up to 500MB of storage. For a low-cost paid subscription, however, artists can maximize these platform’s storage capabilities and own their own domain name.
