12 Excellent Photo and Design Portfolio Templates

It seems counterintuitive for a designer to purchase a portfolio template. After all, you’re a designer! Why not just make your own? Well, despite being a designer or photographer, you might not have the skills to create an awesome layout yourself – if you’re primarily a logo designer, working with InDesign to create an awesome portfolio booklet might not be your cup of tea. Or maybe, you want to save the hard work for your clients, and take it easy for your own portfolio. No matter the reason, there are a plethora of design portfolio templates out there. These booklets can show off your visual skills to clients, and help you take a bit of a load off!

Most of these portfolios include many of the same features and benefits. If you’re in the market for a portfolio template, it’s really going to be up to the look and feel that matches your personal preference. Special thanks to Nappy for the cover image photo from ISO Republic.
