Okay, I was recommended to make an "online" portfolio, which I could easily do, but my problem is that I'm worried about putting work on my site that could possibly harm my website and its reputation as a freelance web designer.
What should I put in my portfolio that won't harm me? Most of my work is fake, or work that I randomly did, and I only have one that's actually and considerably real work.
Please provide your suggestions, everyone.
The point is. "its your work", we can say that it's fake when you just copied it from other designers. Making an online portfolio doesnt mean just putting the projects you made to a client, but rather put all your artworks on it. In order for people to know your capacity as a designer.
How could your work harm your Brand? Yes! real world work is good to have but personal work doesn't harm you in fact it can help, because you are able to show the full range of your abilities. If someone has never had a client request a Logo Mark, but they have created many in there personal port its okay to list them.
Alternatively you could set up an additional site with just a portfolio and contact information
