50 fantastic portfolios from designers and illustrators

Do you think design is a man's world? Think again Today we have 50 impressive portfolios of extremely talented female designers from all over the world.

Why all the girls?

For example, let's say you're a female designer looking to build an online portfolio and you want some inspiration from other female designers. Where would you look A recent poll by A List Beside over 26,000 web designers found that almost 83% were male. This becomes apparent when you scroll through the plethora of portfolio rounds on design blogs, all of which are usually all by men! This post is meant to serve as inspiration for all women looking to make a name in this industry.

The portfolios below absolutely impressed me in terms of the talent on display. One recurring theme that just cannot be ignored is the number of women designers who are extremely talented illustrators. I'm not sure if girls are more artistic or not, but that ratio seems to be much lower for men.

It doesn't stop though, but you will see a strong level of performance in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, design theory, and any other relevant web design skill. Man or woman, this post should inspire you to be a better designer.
