Here is a list of portfolios I know. These are people I either know personally or know through the web community. We cut the list down to individual portfolios that focused on web design. Please use the comments to recommend portfolios that we may have overlooked, but here is the catch, you can’t recommend your own portfolio. We are looking for some fresh blood, talent that may otherwise be unnoticed by the web community at large. Here is your chance to give props to your friends. The list is meant to give you an idea of what level of quality of work we are looking for.

Adriana de Barros, Allan White, Daniel Jenett, Dan Cederholm, Dave Shea, Derek Powazek, Didier Hilhorst, Doug Bowman, Drew Europeo, Gabe Kean, Jason Kottke, Jon Hicks, Jose Illenberger, Joshua Davis, Joyce Wong, Kirsten Blair, Matt Owens, Matthew Haughey, Noah Maas, Scott Benish, Shaun Inman, Stephen Voss, and Thomas Brodahl.

Jason, perfect. Keep sending them in… I hope to get enough portfolios in so that we can start getting these talented but unknown individuals some limelight for a change.

Thanks for the nod, Nick. Glad to see Jason added on there. Definitely not fresh blood but always a pleasure to peruse, the Cuban Council.

Cuban Council rocks… I had a blast with those guys in Austin… however, they are a company, not an individual… if I included companies in this list it would be a mile long. I am looking for specifically individual portfolios.

I also think 31three is a company, not a individual.. correct me if I am wrong by telling me the name of the person who designed that portfolio site.

Stuff and Nonsense both for the portfolio and the fine articles by Mr Clarke.

Nice stuff going on here… bit dark and creepy for my likes, but a nice style.

Dan Harvey’s portfolio and his blog are great. Clean, powerful, effective design.
