I am looking for a career change and web design has always been a passion of mine, all self taught.
Recently I sent various web design companies emails seeking employment with a link to my current website (Aston Villa Fansite, Blog & Forum - Avillafan.com).
The general feedback I have had is that they like my website and are very impressed, however many have recommended I start a portfolio website as this is the best way to go about things.
So I get the gist of things, but what I want to know is what do people look for in a quality porfolio website.
Plain and simple? Over the top showing my skills? Eye Catching but to the point?
You see I really want to get my new career started, so want to do it the right way.
Also, my name has been taken for a possible domain name, so what ideas/advice would you have for a domain name?
