More great personal websites

I hugely enjoy looking at personal / portfolio websites — they’re a great source of inspiration for exciting and creative websites. Whenever I find one I really like, I bookmark it to come back to.

Going into next year, I know many people may be looking for new work. If you’re about to update your portfolio or write new case studies, take a look at these sites for inspiration.

These 11 sites are presented in no particular order. They’re all portfolios of UX / product design portfolios, apart from a couple of developer websites and blogs. All have amazing standard of design and great readability.

If you missed my last round up, check it out here.


  1. Angela Li (liangela.com)
    Angela is a product designer at Dropbox. Her site is wonderfully minimal. I particularly love the Journal section — both because she writes beautifully and because of how elegantly its laid out.
  2. Geri Reid (gerireid.com)
    I found Geri’s site via Design Club, an initiative that teaches design thinking at London schools. Her one-page site (which she coded from scratch) is so full of joy. I love the colours, the squiggles dividing sections, and the clear breakdown of her work.
  3. Jeremy Cai (jeremycai.com)
    Jeremy is the CEO of Italic. I wanted to include Jeremy’s site as it’s one built entirely on Notion — proof that you don’t need coding knowledge or even a website building tool to make a sleek website.
    It’s effectively a one-pager, with sections for his CV, investments and blog. I also really love the drop-down responses in the contact section — it’s really neat, and I imagine it cuts down on the cold requests he receives.
  4. Frankly, Green + Webb (franklygreenwebb.com)
    Okay — I know I’m cheating here, having an agency site instead of a personal one. But this agency feels so personal! The focus is on the three individuals who run the show, and their site is big, bold, and impressive. I particularly love their logo wall. In their own words “10 years, big names.”
  5. Shirley Wang (shirleywangdesign.com)
    Shirley’s site is built with Cargo, and it’s damn beautiful. The hover previews of the work she’s done are really clever, and, despite being mostly type-driven, it still retains a personal flair (“Shirley is a biologist turned designer…”).
  6. Anton Sten (antonsten.com)
    Anton’s site is clean and minimal, but I included it here for the gorgeous animation that happens when it first loads. It’s nothing crazy: the word ‘define’ is circled, ‘design’ is underlined and ‘launch’ is highlighted. But here, it serves to really sell you on the idea that Anton is a professional who knows what he’s doing.
    Animation and moments of delight are so often considered as an afterthought, and something solely for ‘fun’ websites, but Anton shows how to use a little bit of animation in a skillful way.
  7. Pantufla Cuántica (pantufla.co)
    Pantufla’s site is colourful and puts emphasis solely on her work. There’s no fluff; the site is just gorgeous full-screen screenshots, and contact details.
  8. Paco Coursey (paco.sh)
    At first glance, there’s not a lot to Paco’s site. I liked that some of the site’s pages were disguised in the introductory prose. But then, you click on the command icon (or press Cmd+ K) and a secret launcher reveals itself.
  9. David McGillivray (dmcg.co)
    David’s site was made with Webflow. Like Shirley’s site, he also has a great way of revealing his project work with hover effects. His case studies are clear and well-presented, and there’s a lot of delightful flair: the way the 9 questions stay fixed then stack on each other when scrolling; the footer that fades in; the ‘click to copy’ prompt for his email address.
  10. Ruben Meines (rubenmeines.com)
    Ruben’s website is colourful and direct. His cartoon hands and the blue/red combo make the site friendly and add a unique flair. He also lets his work as a designer/developer speak for itself, with links to live websites instead of lengthy case studies.
  11. Jonas Pelzer (jonaspelzer.com)
    Jonas’s website is loud, simple, and to-the-point.
