My friend Rhon has been working on his web site for a year or more, I think. He’s a graphic designer at our company, and a serious perfectionist, so I guess that’s to be expected. Check out his new site: Rhon Porter Studio Design. A lot of it is STILL under construction, but the illustrations he posted are really impressive.
When I ask Rhon about design sites that he goes to, one that he recommended was Design Is Kinky. Apparently they regularly feature work by lots of different artists, but the real churn is on the mugshots page where you can submit a picture of yourself and a link to your [portfolio/design] site. It’s a good example of how the web levels the playing field, but also makes the world more competitive. You’d look pretty lame if your mugshot appeared, but your site was really crappy. Most of the sites are pretty good, though, if a little cryptic in that what-the-hell’s-going-on-with-this-weird-Flash-animation kind of way. So many people!
