Using agency work in portfolio?

over 8 years ago from , Software Designer

Hi guys,

I was wondering what the general thought was on using work you've done for an agency or as part of a team in your portfolio. Our contract only has an NDA for projects that are in progress, but nothing about projects that have been completed.

What do you guys think?

    "Work created as a full time employee at _______ agency." at the bottom of the page. If the agency gets mad you gotta take it down. Usually the agency won't get mad unless the client finds it and gets mad.

    Also, this should go without saying but, don't post in progress client work. You'll likely be fired and could do a lot of damage to your client and agency.

      Yeah I agree too. Obviously in-progress won't be good to post, but I think I'll go with your idea and leave that quote at the bottom. Thanks!

    I've always put completed work in my portfolio and credited the entire team that worked on it. I've never been asked to remove something but if I was and it was still a great piece of work I'd probably just upload it to a password protected part of the site in the event I ever wanted to show it to someone.

    I think it's fine as long as you let them know and it's clear what you do on that part. Usually I make this clear at the beginning of the project.

    The purpose tou, is to showing what you're doing in that project.
