    It depends a lot on what the designer actually does. UI/UX projects should include detailed case studies. Branding projects should showcase the progress, some variation and the actual work being used in different environments. Digital art work should also have some close-up screenshots attached. There's a bunch of other things that make a portfolio look great but I think the most important part is the designer. The portfolio is a tool for promoting yourself, not only your work.

    Also, worth mentioning that if you are a student you shouldn't try to make your portfolio look like it's one of a senior's (mainly because you'll probably fail because of the quality of your work). Keep it simple, showcase the best work you have and leave premium fonts, fancy videos and 3D mockups for later, when you will have more experience and you'll know better how/when to use different showcase materials.
