Here is a single page personal portfolio website that makes an impact without eating up too much space. A catchy slogan hits the viewer on the homepage, as you lower you gaze there is a short introduction to Chris Thurman, a web and UI designer. There is navigation at the top of the page, but you can scroll down as well, check out Chris’ services, admire his projects, click for an expanded view and finally contact him for a job.

Anders Hojland Mikkelsen
Anders is into art direction and design, and by his own confession, “wants to be great.” His portfolio site has a basic homepage with the logo and menu bar taking up almost half of the landing page and then being followed by a thumbnail layout of his projects. These thumbnails are placed askew. Click on them, or on any other link for that matter, and images and information slide into view. The overall effect is classy and high impact.
