24 Impressive Flash Portfolios for Your Inspiration

A professionally made portfolio website is the basis of an artist’s successful career. It should demonstrate his creativity, express his uniqueness and, at the same time, it should be user-friendly and visually attractive for visitors. As for me, Flash works perfectly for portfolio websites, as it opens so many opportunities for the people of art: you can create amazing unusual galleries, include appropriate music accompaniment, use wonderful, even shocking graphics, interactive elements, and many more… In your Flash portfolio you can implement the most crazy and unbelievable your ideas.

    I love these, but the problem with flash portfolios is that they’re difficult and ineffective with search engines. In other words, people aren’t going to find your site through Google and Yahoo!
