It is important to showcase your design work so that more people can see it. This will help you get more feedback, more critiques, and most likely more clients. In this post I will share the top 5 places to showcase your design work. I cannot guarantee you will get clients, but most of these sites have clients looking around and if you have the quality they are looking for, it is quite easy to get them.
Also check out some creative ways for designers to market themselves if you are looking to promote your work and get more clients today!
Dribbble is an invite based community, but it is well worth the trouble of getting invited. Not only are you surrounded by some of the top designers in the world, but client scouts from companies like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Sony, and Dropbox are hanging around, just to mention a few.
Behance is another great site worth checking out. It does not require invites either. There are often a good amount of client scouts here as well. This site is more widespread. It showcases fine art, photography, design, and product design.
DeviantArt has sort of become flooded with millions of photos and designs, but it still has promise. If you are looking to give away freebies or trying to promote some art, not necessarily for clients, this site is perfect. It is also good to promote design resources, and has a great community!
Dunked is not exactly a place to get clients, but it is literally the perfect place to put together your portfolio. It has incredible tools to showcase your design work and makes it super easy to customize. It also has one of the most beautiful designs out there, and it fairly new, so definitely try it out!
Creattica is one of the harder sites to showcase on, because they review each design to make sure it is amazing. However; if accepted, the promotion is amazing. Each design gets thousands of views, shares, and support. Plus this site is great for finding inspiration, with some of the best designers, illustrators, and photographers.
