New portfolios - wow

I’ve got a Corofolio… Taylor Lies in Chicago, IL

And a personal website portfolio… http://id.iit.edu/~taylorl

My challenge is that my work is mainly in the area of design research and concept development, but doesn’t lend itself to pretty pictures as I’m not a true industrial designer. Are there ways to present interesting, pertinent design work without having to show spiffy 3D renderings?

Thanks.
