Should designers portfolio?(twitter.com)

    So it seems I'm one of the few people who agrees with Jared. The same is true for networking events, the best people are too busy making shit.

    I'm in no way saying I'm top design talent (far from it) but I find having to submit a portfolio frustrating.

    I actually don't really have a portfolio, I have a website but nothing is on there except some links to LinkedIn, Dribbble (which I never post to anymore) and Github (which is probably the best place to see what projects I'm working on).

    The biggest problem I have is that I work as a in house designer for a company (not an agency). I don't own the work I do, and since it's a paid service my work isn't available publicly. I would show screenshots of our app privately in an interview, but I can't post screenshots of it on my portfolio.

    I curious what other in house designers do for their portfolio? Just have a lot of side projects?
