Designing content along with minimalism is quite possibly the most heavily used portfolio layout scheme. I have witnessed dozens of various portfolio layouts which all focus around a minimalist design. The goal is to generally present the least amount of information that is needed for your visitors. Make the design clean, the navigation easy to find, and the page text easy to consume.
To design a website around minimalism is also to cut back on unnecessary content. Generally you do not need an extra Twitter feed widget or other related distractions. The beauty of minimalism is within the lack of distractions. Visitors can focus on your work and your credentials which is what really matters. There are so many more examples of minimalism which I have not included in this post.
