I see it every day in Facebook groups, Slack communities, and across the UX community. UX professionals are concerned about their portfolio presentation. Designers need a portfolio to showcase what they’ve created, provide references, and build their client roster.
Whether you’re looking for a job or bringing in business, your portfolio is your introduction and first impression. Make a good one with a .DESIGN domain from Hover.
Hover, part of the Tucows umbrella, is unique from other registrars. With Hover, you get free Whois privacy will all eligible domain names, over 300 Top-Level Domains to choose from, and unparalleled customer support.
Why own the .DESIGN Domain Name
For those who can’t help but create. The .DESIGN domain is the mark of a proud member of the design community as well as an opportunity to make your web address as personal as your aesthetic. First impressions have never been so powerful.
Companies like AirBnB, Adobe, Facebook, and Uber use .DESIGN for their company’s design portfolio, blog, use cases, and more.
Taco Bell has used their .DESIGN domain name to do something a bit different and creative – they’ve built a website that showcases their design team and the projects their design team has built.
A Little History about .DESIGN
.DESIGN was launched May 12th 2015 by Top Level Design registry. Hover sells .DESIGN domain names on behalf of the registry to creative and design-centric customers, just like you! Top Level Design was launched in 2012 in Portland, Oregon out of the United States. The idea was to create a domain extension to represent how design permeates all aspects of our lives and to provide a place for designers of all types – big companies to one-person-shows – to showcase their work.
