    Thank you, this was both fun and useful! I am implementing a portfolio site for a friend of mine, and I’m going to play with custom meta tags.

    Cool video, dude!
    they should put a “download feature” around :) so one can save this.
    btw – I’ve tried different portfolios through the years and now I’m actually using 2:
    1 is based on a issuu.com – and it’s for a fast preview of my main design – the logos
    2 is separated in a blog and it’s like a backup – where I’m putting different things that we’ve designed, but are not the focus of our designs studio and also .. there I have the place to write a few words for each case ( if I have the time and I want ).

    What bothers me is that I have to put 3 diff. thumbs for each design in the blog… instead of just using a plugin that can crop this or something. It’s annoying :) Just sharing my observations with you.

    Anyway – clients and friends like that the main portfolio is really fast accessible. So whatever you gonna do with your portfolio – try to make things faster and simpler – otherwise people with get bored and will close your folio right away :) This is my personal tip.
