Start with the perfect domain name.
Your creations deserve to be seen. There’s no better way to showcase your designs than with a graphic design website designed and created by you. Like every good design, there are a few things you should take into account before you start. First, if you don’t have a domain name for your site, take some time to think of one. Do a few quick Google searches to see what’s already out there. Whatever you decide to name your site, it should stand out in your audience’s mind and be reflective of what you want to accomplish with your graphic design website.
With your domain name selected, take some time to figure out the purpose of your site:
- Showcasing your portfolio
- Promoting your graphic design business
- Discussing design trends
- Sharing helpful links and resources
- Inspiring other designers
Be sure you know the primary goal of your graphic website before you start creating a mockup of your site, which comes next.
