With an online portfolio they can check what you have made or what level your skill is. An easy way to make a portfolio is to make a blog or there are also free spaces like freewebs.com to make anything you want.

What if i would send a pdf-file with work i created?

I have some created things on the site below. Is this enough work?

Maybe it might be easier to ask you something in dutch language

The pictures arent working and the extra side menu of the portfolio section is very annoying. Each time you press the portfolio and then a section an extra side menu is made and it ad it each time you do that.

The picture got error cause I can see the files in the directory but they got an eror. Maybe wrong save or error during upload. http://www.allcreati...m/files/171221/

Maybe because i uploaded the files on a mac computer. Do you have any better suggestions to create my portfolio with? I know the portfolio section is annoying, but i only want to upload my work and show it. When i have to pay attention about the layout of the pages, it will take too many time...:p

As a good webmaster you need to test sites for imperfections how little they even are. For the clients these things are very important, cause this way you show a bit how you work. They can even cut the contract halfway because they don't trust your work, and search for an other designer.

Just have to show your work is in of I think. I use blogger to show my portfolio. Just a blog with each work I made and showed with little details about each work. Just the the link below.

There are free portfolio sites, and paid ones......like the one your using, I was able to veiw your work, very, very nice.......maybe get so more in there (1 only saw 5 designs?)

Here are some other folio sites
http://www.impactfol...b_hosting_plan/
basically, all you'd have to do is upload, and viola...instant portfolio..
I belong to www.artwanted.com, its cheap, EASY, quick...and has served its purpose......
If you are showing your skills as a web-designer, you may need to get your site working/up

Good Luck:)

batmantheking, it would be better if you could submit an actual portfolio site that is dedicated strictly to the purpose of displaying relevant design work. If you can find another way to do this (making sure that it's easy to identify you as the creator of the images) then there should not be a problem.

Everything is fine so far, no need to worry. I'll be looking at your application soon. I have lots of other work right now as well, so it will take more time than usual.

How did you wanted me to put it unless on that way?

Why should we Design Team Members want a member like you, who doesn't want to be envolved, who have "stuff" in the portfolio?

I don't have stuff in my portfolio neither other DTMs. We have concepts, ideas, experiments, designs, in conclusion... we have work.

Thats is a different attitude and its the right one to be accepted as Design Team Member and be able to participate in the guaranteed paid contest, which is the only reason you wan to be in.

Actually, they're based on experience. We've literally had to ban people with this attitude after having them on the DT because of other things they tend to "not want to do". Nothing sect-like about it.
