We have analyzed thousands of portfolio websites and gathered hundreds of well-designed ones for our different website example collections - photography portfolios, UX portfolios, web developer/designer portfolios, graphic design portfolios, architecture portfolios, copywriting portfolios, interior design portfolios, and more.
Many of them are made using one of the following portfolio website templates as the starting point.
This is a collection of the best portfolio website templates. I’ve included designs for all types of portfolios and for most of the popular website builders (including Squarespace, Wix, WordPress, Webflow, and more).
Beaumont has the clean and simple yet sophisticated design language of Squarespace that users love. It’s great for photography websites and other portfolio websites where the work’s photos (for example, art, graphic design, UI design screenshots, etc.) are the focus.
The Beaumont homepage doubles as the work section with its two-column, big portfolio item thumbnails. Individual portfolio items contain full-screen width images and a simple description as placeholders — but as with any Squarespace template, you can change it as you like. The minimal design—white background with black text surrounded by plenty of whitespaces—is reflected in all pages, including About and Contact.
The header title of the Ortiz template demo reads “Ortiz Photography,” making it clear the template is for photographers. However, it also has the qualities to make great personal websites - a well-designed About page, an individual’s photo and other details in the hero section, an About section on the homepage, etc.
I won’t classify this template as minimal, but it looks sleek and has ample negative space to let each section shine. The demo colors, typography, and photos look eye-catching. At the same time, the functional elements are also taken care of - the hierarchy is ideal, there’s space for testimonials and portfolio items, the navigation bar has links to the most important pages (Gallery and Book Me), and the call to action buttons are appropriately placed throughout the website.
Nolan has a modern, minimalistic design suitable for portfolio-focused businesses like digital agencies. It has simple services and work pages presenting the respective items in two or three-column grids. Visitors can learn more (example: see the case study associated with the portfolio item) by clicking on the items.
Quinn is a modern and clean portfolio template with bold typography, ample white space, and high-quality imagery. The large, red “PORTFOLIO” title immediately draws attention, while the minimalistic layout keeps the focus on the work.
The straightforward navigation and monochromatic color palette add a professional and edgy feel to the design.
This template is suitable for creative professionals who need to showcase their work in a visually compelling way. It includes sections for selected works, latest projects, and a client list, plus contact information and social media links.
Matsuya’s web design style is minimalist, with an emphasis on visual content. It uses a grid-based layout to display images in various sizes (sort of a masonry grid), making it a good choice for photo galleries. You can click on any image to see it in full size.
The monochrome palette helps keep the photos in focus. Plus, the simple navigation, with a clear menu linking to different photo categories, helps visitors go through the work with ease.
The template is ideal for creative professionals to showcase their work and includes social media links in the footer.

On the functional side, this template allows you to showcase your work front and center while giving visitors the option to explore further work under the particular presented project. Plus, of course, it has the usual pages: contact, about, and links to social media profiles.

This web design style is suitable for showcasing visual media. It employs large, bold visuals to break up the content, making it engaging for users.
The template is evidently tailored for videographers, cinematographers, or any creative professionals in the film and video industry. It effectively segments work into categories like narrative, commercial, and music videos, making it easy for visitors to navigate through the portfolio. The contact section is clear and encourages collaboration, indicating that it’s designed to facilitate professional connections and project inquiries.
However, you can use it for other professions as well if you like it…but I presume it’ll take a lot of editing to make it suitable for anything other than a video-related website.
This Wix template is bold and eclectic, featuring a mix of bright colors and contrasting black and white elements. It has a contemporary and artistic feel that is very fitting for an art community or collective. Thereofre, the template is suitable for art collectives, galleries, or individual artists looking to create a community or exhibit various forms of art.

This modern Wix photography template’s homepage is like a splash page with a full-screen photo and space for a title. But it has a navigation that takes you to all the important pages of a photographer’s website.
The template has pre-built pages for both portfolios and albums, i.e., you can show your work in the form of photo galleries of particular projects (example: a gallery of photos from a particular wedding) as well as individual photos under particular categories (example: portraits, wedding photos, etc.).
