A Portfolio is an incomplete chronicle . . .
For instance > on-site projects (print or web) involve work-for-hire restrictions, copyright relinquishment and proprietary info liabilities. Ultimately, employers are satisfied > you have steady(?) income, and some self-respect. But, obtaining copies (esp. digital) for "the artist"?
Quite rare . . .
Of course, freelancers have a related production landscape, esp. copyright relinquishment & proprietary info liabilities - then there's dealing with the IRS & "the benefit desert". Ultimately though, clients are satisfied > folks realize continued value for said services & invoices are promptly answered. Some samples will exist. But, factor in the opening design gambits intended to give your clients some choice in direction > those "designs" may be interesting, but are relatively raw because they aren't fleshed out with paying interest. Stuff of Legend?
Nah . . .
But, such efforts do yield insight as to the designer's natural talent, inate flexibility — and stopping power. Just not suitable subjects for the spotlight. "The Process" isn't viewable . . .
Yeah, yeah . . .
Doesn't everyone's personal/professional history have a bit of, "what was THAT all about"?
We do assimilate the Past . . .
While creating a fresh, vibrant Future . . .

The Legend of
the Flying Dutchman
A Working Theory . . .
Style & consistency will help establish the client's branding . . .
The client's overall approach as a "benefit" must be apparent to their customers, who will then absorb said brand > creating a working relationship . . .
Marketing possibilities become easier sells vis-a-vis that Presence - that feeling of a shared awareness that identifies & solves a problem, or eliminates a need . . .
Said Style may well be the symbiotic clincher that creates a long-term relationship in a saturated, competitive landscape . . .
And, of course, those "clinched" become monetized assets (certainly a relationship befitting the term "well-designed") . . .
