First of all, Veerle is flippin’ brilliant to begin with, but then writes a blog post entitled “What a designer has to do when looking for a job” that is
chalk full of great advice, and then recommends you use ExpressionEngine to set up your portfolio. What’s not to love!
Next, I would design myself a website using web standards of course. How far you take this is based on personal knowledge. If it was me, I would use ExpressionEngine to power my portfolio and blog. Why? Because it’s a great way to get your name out and to show your work to the world.
