I’ve been tasked to create a ‘middle ground’ portfolio or an internal document we can quickly send to clients. Allow me to explain…
We have raw sketches, photos, and renders from various projects scattered all over many computers. The problem with this is sending a zip file full of random images to a client is unprofessional, doesn’t tell a story, and every other problem you might imagine with a half assed portfolio.
We also have a polished portfolio on our site that has scrubbed images of projects, case studies, and videos. The problem here is that we only have one web designer and he’s the only one who has the time and expertise to clean up a portfolio piece, get the necessary permissions for posting 3rd party images or logos (that don’t belong to us or our clients), and upload that to our site.
What we need is a middle ground where we have a document that has a brief description of the project and a few set of images (with permission), and can be easily updated by anyone on the team. I’d like to stay away from one behemoth sized google shareable folder or word doc if possible. Maybe a portfolio site like coroflot that allows you to set it to private and share with only people you choose/invite? Any thoughts on this?
