It’s interesting to see what people are doing to attract attention. Interactivity is a great idea, novelty is okay as long as it is done well, and obviously depends on the work you’re trying to get.

I always mention Adham Dannaway’s portfolio website, (and obviously other people love it too when you see how many replicas there are) but I like the playful/professional combination. It just works.
