I tried out Carrd recently and as a no-code tool, it suffices. It was recommended by a newsletter for media practitioners as a builder that could be used to quickly create a portfolio website. 

It certainly fulfils that purpose. It also helps that you can go live, without having to pay for a subscription. However, on the free plan, you’ll have to use a carrd subdomain. 

My experimental website is at realhumangirl.carrd.co if you’re interested in checking it out. 

This was my first time using it and it took me a while to figure out the builder. I also felt like there wasn’t much customisation I could do. While there are a number of themes to choose from, the design feels very fixed. 

But it definitely fits the bill as a quick setup portfolio site. It took me about 15 minutes, including uploading photos. 

But to be honest, if I were looking to create a portfolio site, I might use Tumblr instead. 

There’s a wide range of themes available that don’t have to be customised to use. It’s easy to manage content. And you can use your own domain for free. There are instructions that are pretty straightforward to follow. 

If at any point you want to create something from scratch, Tumblr also has great theme documentation that you can refer to.
