View Full Version : ActionScript Dev Portfolios
04-25-2010, 05:56 PM
I have followed a lot of the links you all have posted in your signatures.
It seems that most of you have used a Blog for your ActionScript portfolio.
Why did you not build a Flash / AS3 websight?
Is it a better Idea to use a Blog then a hand made website, why is that?
I am asking because I am looking for work as an AS developer / Flash designer.
I am almost finish building a HTML,CSS site that has ActionScript / Flash examples in it.
Did I just waste my time?:eek:
Any suggestions would be helpful. TNX

I don't think it's a waste of time to make an all-flash portfolio site. Some corporate portfolio sites themselves are all-flash.
Given that I have a demanding full-time job, I don't have a lot of time to write a full-flash site. I do however, have the time to set up a premade wordpress blog, change the stylesheets, and put a teaser of what I'm capable of in Flash as my banner. The wordpress route also has the advantage of allowing you to set up a more traditional "website" structure with the page tabs. For example, if I wanted to expand the site and set up a "Scriptocalypse Labs" section in which I post experiments, I could do that.
Could I do all that with a site that's 100% hand-made? Sure! Is it worth the time investment when I'm already so crunched? Probably not.
