This is a little different than portfolio sites because it’s a tumblr, but it’s a really nice site. She had created a place to show all the things that inspire her, gives snippets of her work, does a monthly re-cap on what happened in her life, and give advice to freelance designers. This is a lovely and well curated blog that is inspiring and resourceful.

Right when you get to this site it’s big and open and white. Everything you need is in the top left and it’s simple. It’s ultra clean. As you click on the links to the left they accordion out into a list of projects. From there you can select one to look at. I love the sideshow of the pieces under Posters and Prints. It allows you to see the whole thing, select details, and alternate versions of the piece. There’s a short description of the work. The rest is left to you to think on. Again, ultra clean.
This works for Ansin because his work really speaks for itself. Leaving everything so stark is the right choice for him.
