    Neue Haas Unica is Monotype’s revival of a typeface that has attained almost mythical status in the type community. Unica® was an attempt to create the ultimate sans-serif – a hybrid of Helvetica, Univers and Akzidenz Grotesk.

    I'd love to hear your initial thoughts on this. I'm also open for collaborations.

    I'm not speaking from a freelancers perspective and the work should always speak for itself, no matter if you're at an agency, start-up, big company or freelancing.

    I'd say write it yourself if you know how to. Twitter Bootstrap is an overkill for one page.

    This: "innate pressure to have to do everything at once (and be amazing at it)" is a little thing called passion and ambition. I don't really get your point either.

    I couldn't disagree more.

    Especially when you're doing design for more than a few years you need to have a portfolio you've designed and preferably coded yourself. Choosing for services like Cargo and Squarespace feels like an easy way out. Show that you've got the skills to make something yourself. Besides that it's also important from a branding perspective. Most themes are generic and dull, making the site yourself makes sure it's personal and allows you to go nuts with design and interaction and create something unique that stands out and people will remember.

    If I was to hire an experienced (web or interface) designer having a self made portfolio is a must. It's got nothing to do with getting noticed, it's about showing your skill and having the passion to create things yourself instead of letting services do the job for you.
