I'm in the process of making my portfolio and I'm torn between the options. I've decided to go the double sided way as the pages flow better and I know this can be easily uploaded to issuu.com. But having a website looks more professional and unlike issuu most of the website templates are in the form of a list of one sided pages.
I would apreciate some good website template suggestions! as i'm really hoping it won't be neccesary to learn to code my own :D
Templates are nice but as a designer I found the only way to be truly satisfied is to learn to code it yourself or.... have a close friend do it for you, one that is willing to put up with all the nit-picking details.
Unless your portfolio is complete I would invest most of my time into designing/laying it out instead of worrying about website templates.
I'm not a professional so I don't really know what potential employers prefer but seeing as most ask for a pdf of work samples I think it's safe to say that is the preferred method of submitting a portfolio. Websites are nice but usually only if you have the time to invest in them.
My two cents...
design a pdf portfolio first, then transfer the files into a website. Kill two birds with one stone. Eventually, most employers will want to see a hardcopy during the interview
