Here is one of the latest sites that I've been working on. This designer just earned her Master of Interior Architecture degree and needed a portfolio site.
We used NextGen with customized thumbnails to make her portfolio pop with colour - literally!
She did the cool logo - so I cannot take credit for that! I set up her site in wordpress so that she could easily update her portfolio as needed. We used coloured squares that when clicked on launch a lightbox gallery to keep the site clean and modern.
