So I’m currently putting together my portfolio site, specifically the project/work section and I got to thinking about case studies.
Now I’ve seen portfolio sites that keep it super simple in terms of showcasing work (the FCC example portfolio comes to mind), most likely with an image, a title, and maybe a one line blurb on what it is. I’ve also seen sites that go into greater detail about each project with what the goals were, how the developer/designer went about meeting said goals, what they used, etc. Sometimes that info is presented via a hover effect, sometimes a full page is dedicated to mapping out the entire process from start to finish.
If you have the time, I wanted to get your opinions on the subject. Either what you ended up doing on your own personal sites, what you’ve seen others do, what you’ve thought might have been an ideal set up verses not. Is there a sweet spot between too vague and too wordy? If you had to hire someone on the presentation of their work alone, what would you look for?
