    What types of artwork can I legally show on my portfolio site?

    I've worked for a company for over 6 years and created a lot of professional artwork for this company. I'm updating my resume and my online portfolio, however I'm worried about posting screenshots of artwork that I've done for the company I currently work for. The CEO of the company is extremely sensitive to competitors seeing what we do. It's actually a bit ridiculous because our company doesn't do anything special or secret. I'm concerned about him coming after me with some sort of legal action. What can I legally get away with sharing? The employment agreement does say that anything I create is the company's property. But my portfolio website will be super boring if I can't show anything that I've done over the last 6 years.

    Why don't you just do some of your best artwork with a fake name company and use that on your portfolio. Sorry but what everybody else said is quite true.

    • Correct - the artwork you did during your employment is the property of the company ... You will have to ask the CEO for permission ..

    • You can show it only with the company's permission. As you point out, the artwork is a work product and belongs to the company, so you can get sued for copyright infringement if you use it.
