About This Class


The Project
In this class you'll learn how to make your own portfolio website to showcase your work. We'll cover everything from the basics, to setting up your domain name, and installing themes.

How the Class Works
Throughout the class you'll be able to get feedback from your fellow classmates, ask questions, and join groups. Go at your own pace, you can either knock out your website during one weekend, or span it across several weeks.


What We'll Cover
This class is a begineer level class, and will cover the following:

  • Content and Purpose (projects, pages, and more)
  • Platforms (Virb, Behance, Cargo, Squarespace, etc)
  • Design (chosing a template or theme, thumbnails, personal branding)
  • Finishing Touches (domain names and promoting your site)

We won't be really covering any HTML, CSS, or coding in this class. You don't need to know HTML and CSS to create a great looking portfolio website.
