When looking for design and illustration portfolios, I came across Robby Leonardi’s website, and its one of the coolest online portfolios Ive ever seen! You interact with it as if you’re playing a game of Mario Bros, while learning about his skills, experience, and hobbies. Even though it’s more of a resume than actually showing individual examples of work, the way he presents his information and the way you interact with it is a portfolio piece within itself.

Arlo is a Graphic Design firm in Chicago. Arlo Portfolio’s focuses on logo design. Many well-known logo designs were done by Arlo such as American Eagle Outfitters, Nike, AXE body Spray etc. I find it interesting that one firm as branded all of these well-known places we see today. The logos are all so different and very well designed so it seems that it did’t come from one single firm. Many of the works they photographed are shown in a few different views. Zoomed in or on different products such as a bag, tags or the logo itself which is specifically shown in American Eagle Outfitters images.
I find Un.titled Agency’s website is interesting. As I scrolled down, the words that were were moving up practically disappeared with the rectangle with opacity they had added on it. I thought it was neat and organized and less distracting that it disappeared. I love website design because it is similar to layouts. The placement and color choices stood out to me. Bold colors and contrasting colors is really eye grabbing. I love how simple some of their stuff could look too like the Steijer Design (furnishing) website. It shows the furniture and white space and a few important words of content.
