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. In this article, I have prepared an inspirational roundup for you having 24 impressive flash portfolios which will blow your mind.
