Before selecting work to present, it often needs to be broken into categories. If you are presenting a small selection of work, one section may be enough. However, if you are presenting different types of work, aimed at different audiences, there are several ways to divide it for a better user experience:
- Type of Media: A common breakdown is separating your work by major categories such as print, web and illustration.
- Type of Work: Depending on your focus, present your work in categories such as book design, packaging, posters, business cards, brochures, etc.
- Industry: Show your work by industry, such as music, non-profit, entertainment, law, etc. This is effective if you focus on a few industries.
You can also offer your users multiple ways to browse your work, combining the methods above.
