    I can't believe how many people viciously hate what this guy said. Man I would love to not have to maintain a portfolio. Web design is becoming less visually creative and more general in nature, depending on what kind of designer you are. My last project is hard to demonstrate without words because of the various people involved in it, and no-one wants to read words. A lot of my work didn't even involve visuals, rather brainstorming and communication.

    I don't know who decided that every web designer needs a bloody website. It's a lot of work and it's not good for privacy unless you hide it well. If you want to keep with design trends you probably have to redesign each year, unless you're so good you can design a timeless website. Having said all that, I have always had one and every job I apply for requires one. This guy has a point, but don't get any bad ideas from him.
