    How do i fit 400 portfolio items on 1 page?

    I have years of website that someone has created and i need to fit them all on 1 page while making it look good
    I need to fit like 10 websites or more on 1 row
    Im thinking of only showing the logos of the site but could not think of any good layout for them..

    Can anyone help me out with this and share some ideas for a good layout that can fit a lot of images on 1 page?

    If the person has worked on 400 websites, (s)he'd know the answer to this one is "you don't".

    You have to ask yourself...what would happen in the case of a cell phone? 10 websites in a row = no more than 30 pixels per website = way too small.

    The main audience will be using desktop or laptop,
    In case of mobile i can hide some older sites so they don't clog up the page

    He is expecting small tiles but they still have to look good but i'm not sure how to do that

    Thats a horrible idea. Your portfolio SHOULD NOT be every piece you have ever done. It should be the best work you have done. Usually anywhere from 5-15 is recommended.

    I have no idea why you would want 400, and honestly I wouldn't even try.

    Put a polka-dotted elephant on the site. While you're at it, make sure the elephant is shaving its armpits to promote a body hairless lifestyle. If I was your client and I asked you to do this, would you?

    Same idea here.

    I really doubt if anybody would want to look at 400 items, they just want to see the best items. Just state that you've worked on 400 projects, and show just 10 (best) items. The more you show, the less users look.

    I agree that a portfolio should only have your best work, and listing 400 items on one page is a bad idea.

    If it's truly necessary for some reason we're not grasping, I'd consider breaking them up into multiple pages, maybe by category of some sort? Or use text - a list of 400 text items would at least be slightly more manageable than 400 tiny icons. Or combine those approaches, and show nice big images for a handful of portfolio highlights, followed by the full list of clients or projects.

    But I agree with the others that the best solution would be to curate the portfolio down to the very best examples.

    If he really insists on having 400 websites crammed onto one portfolio page, you might try choosing the top ten, make those the focus, and then reduce all the others down into just titles or small icons below that.

    Thinking about it though, couldn't someone with that much experience make their own portfolio page in no time?
