Hey folks, been nearly a decade since I have had an online site for myself. Feel like back then I just had to show some nice images but now probably need something more thought out. Does anyone have good examples? Mostly looking for ideas how to frame the story. ;) Many thanks!
As a general guideline — along with any executions of a campaign I've worked on — I'll include the client's name, my role in the whole thing, the agency's name where I was when I worked on it, and a write-up.
For the write-up, I try to keep it as brief as humanly possible (doesn't always happen, though), I include elements of the creative brief (speficially, challenge, insight, and objective), then I go on to describe the actual idea, and detail in which medium or media the campaign lived.
This is also the information I look for when I'm screening candidate CVs and portfolios.
- I'd also like to add: don't overthink it too much beyond that.Continuity
- Oh, I should also say that when I describe my idea, I make sure to clearly tie it back to the strategy (challenge/insight/o... and say why I feel thatContinuity

- Thanks.. this helps.72339
When you are screening, what has been your experience with NDAed work? Wouldn’t be too hard to do a pw site... or do people usually wait and show that in person?
I've seen a couple of ways of doing it — some candidates will PW the whole site (probably for the sake of simplicity), other will PW the individual page for the NDAed project.
In either case, I've always received the PW with their covering notes.
There are some out there that still cling to the stupid idea that a portfolio with a password is a barrier to entry, and that anyone looking to hire would pass you over as a result, but that's bullshit. I've never prejudiced against a candidate for that, and neither has any other CD I know.
