The portfolio page is one of the most important pages for anyone providing a service. It not only demonstrates the type of work you do, but also shows the visitor your level of expertise and clients that you’ve worked with. Portfolio pages can be designed many different ways. In this article we’ll look at 11 Divi websites with cool portfolio pages to help inspire you for your next Divi design.
Portfolio pages typically include the standard portfolio, filter portfolio, or full-width portfolio modules. However, there are other ways to display your portfolio. Some build the portfolio with elements such as images, blurbs, or galleries. Of course, this has to work well within the page’s layout. We’ll see examples of each.
I’ll show an image of the section I like and discuss what I liked about it. The websites are in no particular order. Hang around until the end for a few links to help you level up your own portfolio page using Divi.
1. Boon Creative
This site displays a list of services that open in toggles in the hero section followed by a full-width section to show a quote. The portfolio section shows the categories of the services, name of the client, and client description in the left, and images of the project on the right. Each of the portfolio items are separated by a thin divider. Examples of websites include links to view the live website.
This site shows the portfolio items in three columns and includes a section in a single column. The three column sections place an overlay over the images of each project with the client’s logo in white. White line-drawn Icons in the bottom corners show the category for the project. The single column section shows an image of the project with text and a button over a patterned background. Under the third section it provides links to see more in each category.
3. Leo Whou Teng
This page places the portfolio items in a multi-column layout with no space between the images. Hovering over any of them reveals a blue overlay over the image and a box at the bottom that shows the name and categories of the project. The portfolio includes two and three columns and alternates the layout. The images use different backgrounds and show the images of the projects on different types of devices. This site makes excellent use of color.
4. Studinger Media Graphics
This site introduces the portfolio page with the company’s logo, name, and page title over an elegant background image that just barely shows through the overlay in monochrome. The portfolio section uses styled buttons for the filter and shows the projects in a three column grid. Hovering spins the image and provides a link. The page also includes a call to action, contact form, and a revealing footer with a QR code and social follow buttons that match the site’s branding.
5. Catherine Cliffe
This portfolio page shows a full-screen image with title and description in an overlay in parallax. Scrolling reveals a text section with the name and location of the project and the names of the people involved. Following this is a gallery that includes images in full-screen and a three-column grid. Other projects follow a similar pattern with images shown within a two or three-column grid.
6. Super Divine Web Design
This one numbers each project and displays an image that includes the company’s logo and the services provided, the project’s title with a hand-written font, a short description of the project, and a button to see the project live. The title text, border, and button colors match the site’s branding. Following this is a CTA to an online booking app.
7. Get Web Design
This portfolio page loads projects images similar to Pinterest. They’re displayed in a 4 or 5-column grid (depending on your screen size and zoom level). Hovering over any project reveals a magnifying glass. Clicking this opens the image in a lightbox. Many of the images are complete layouts of websites while others are the hero area.
8. Caporal Marketing Digital
This portfolio page displays a full-width image with title, tagline, and button with an interesting border that matches the site’s branded colors. Scrolling reveals the filtered portfolio in a three-column grid. The portfolio shows the client’s logos in monochrome which displays in color on hover. They also include the client’s name and service provided. The line on the left displays the names of the social networks in text that’s oriented sideways. They remain on screen on scroll.
9. The Mighty Fox
This page is introduced with a full-width background with a darkened overlay and an elegant font to display the page’s title. The filtered portfolio displays the client’s logos in monochrome. Hovering over any of the projects brings in an overlay from the direction the mouse came from. The overlay displays the company’s name and services provided along with a link to see the project live. This is followed by a CTA, a two-column section with a background image in parallax and a testimonial slider, social follow buttons, and an Instagram feed.
This one was developed for mobile first. The page is introduced with a large section with extra-large text that includes a title and description. On scroll and ticker appears at the bottom of the page and remains on the screen in this location. The cursor is changed to a large arrow and changes to a large hand when you hover over an image. The projects are displayed in two columns. The page also includes a list of services, contact form, and newsletter opt-in. The footer is revealed on scroll and displays video that shows through the cut-out section of text.
