How many pages should a graphic designer portfolio have?

A portfolio should have as many pages as necessary to showcase the designer's work. Typically, this means between 8 and 12 pages. Also, it is better to have different portfolios for different kinds of jobs (branding, advertising, etc) than one big portfolio with too many pages


For me they should not be more than 15 pages, 15 being too much for me, but you can use it as a maximum and try to have fewer pages in your portfolio.

Most portfolios tend to be around 10-15 pages long. There is no set number, but usually fewer pages is better because you can dedicate them more details and showcase your work better

Also, should I update my LinkedIn so that recruiters know I’m open for work?
