Designing a Personal Portfolio Website–Web Design Process: Built By Hand Ep 3

In the third episode of Built By Hand, Ben is sitting down to design his personal portfolio website… and let’s just say, well, it’s not entirely a fun process. How do you design for yourself? How do you overcome imposter syndrome? How do you create something that looks and feels like it’s on-brand… when it’s a personal brand? Join Ben as he tackles his website’s visual design, working through imposter syndrome, and hopefully… crafting a portfolio site that represents his personal brand.
