Looking for ways to boost your digital identity? Graphic design is one of the latest ways to impress potential connections with your skills. Do one or all of the following to give your digital image a design makeover:
Design a Website
One of the best ways to improve both your graphic design portfolio and your digital identity is to design a website about yourself. Show off your design skills by making the website fun, simple, and unique. You can tell your users more about yourself with About Me, Resume, Contact, and Blog pages. Your contacts can not only learn more about you, but they could also be impressed by your design abilities and ambition.
Create a Portfolio
If you have a background in graphic design, it’s best to create a portfolio and show off your work. Most of today’s job descriptions ask for “jack-of-all-trades”-type workers, and that includes graphic designers. Your design skills can likely be put to use in any opportunity you pursue, so don’t hide your talent. Use the advantages of the Web to create an online portfolio for your designs.
Nearly anyone can create a simple infographic, which can be a popular and fun way to convey messages. Even if you don’t have much graphic design training, show that you are digitally savvy by adding an infographic to your digital portfolio or website. It might endear you to users and show them that you know what you’re doing.
A digital identity can make or break your professional opportunities. Use your graphic design skills to add some flair to your online profile.
