Another plus is that other designers may get in contact with you. Then you become part of a network, a miniature community that helps each other with ideas, access to jobs, and constructive criticism to help you improve your skills. Of course this is true with just about all industries today, example of a graphic designer is only a good one because their work is often hard to duplicate. This means that normally they can only see one employer at a time. On Internet you can get a list of all graphic design companies with your search engine (Eg: Google), and send them all your web site address at once.
Having your personal portfolio on Web will definitely save you a lot of money that would have otherwise gone to transportation and telephone costs. If you’re already an established designer, architect, or freelance writer you can exhibit your work and receive briefs on future jobs without ever leaving your office. Designers can send drafts of work on PDF files, which are then read and directly commented on using Acrobat reader. What a time saver in creative process!
However, for those who are still convinced of old fashioned need for a business card, what would be more simple and straightforward than a card with just your name and one link to your web site. As long as you’re keeping yourself in ‘sight’ of industry executives, better chance you’ll be in their minds when it comes to making a choice for job.
