Ways to Improve

We all love a pat on the back and being told that someone likes our work. So, feel free to be nice to each other! 😀

However, the most helpful feedback is ways to improve your portfolio. Flagging things that are unclear. Ideas that could be stronger. Navigation that could be easier.

Portfolio Feedback

Please check our Final Page:

And make sure:

  1. There’s a link to your Portfolio Website there
  2. The URL is correct
  3. Your name is spelled correctly/listed as you prefer
  4. The title/topic I listed for you is what you want

For any changes:

Classmate Feedback

From the Final page, please pick 4 classmates and review their portfolio websites.

  1. Look over their portfolio
  2. List 3 things that are really working on the website
  3. List 3 suggestions to make the portfolio stronger, clearer, or more compelling

Use each classmate’s Contact Page to provide your feedback. You can email them, or write your comments in their Contact Form. Include your email in case your classmate wants to discuss ideas with you.


While you’re at their portfolio, connect with your classmates on social media!

Connect to everyone on Instagram & LinkedIn. And any other relevant platforms.
