20 Creative Personal Portfolio sites using WordPress

What makes a good personal portfolio design?
Essentially, it has to promote you as a brand, it needs to show off your very best work in a clean & tidy way. The site itself shouldn’t overwhelm the potential client but gently show your skills and complement the work it is showcasing.

Yesterday we looked at some free portfolio themes for WordPress, today lets look at some custom portfolio themes. This roundup consists of freelance and company portfolio sites which I think are creative and well designed, all using WordPress to power them.
