A typical portfolio website has less links/options on its navigation bar because the purpose is to showcase work to internet browsers and to not give them activities like quizzes etc, like a normal standard website might do.

Housestyle The Housestyle for this portfolio website is consistent throughout. The dark/burnt oranges are used consistently which makes it look professional. The fonts used in the websites are mainly consistent but not exactly the same.
