I review a lot of portfolio websites for interactive designers, graphic designers and other creative pros—typically because they tend to be edge-pushing and awesome. Then there are cases like this promotional website for Brian Benitez, where a simple package with a smooth design is really exciting. This site design also plays into a common pattern: The simpler the portfolio website, the more outstanding the work. When your work is so smoking, you don’t need not dress it up to impress.
