Design copying , cloned website in protflio

I want to copy a website design and use it to showcase my ability to code. I have already copied a few designs from square space but I coded them myself. Now I am wondering if I will be able to include them in my portfolio while also giving design credit. If this is okay them how should I credit them as like mention them in readme file in github and in portfolio site give details like I copied this design from xyz website . And if this not okay then where I would find design to copy from to showcase my ability to code as I don’t know how to design how would I go about this situation

Cloning a web site is a nice exercise. It shows that you can use CSS and that you can implement someone else’s design. Yeah, I would just label it as a cloned site and give a link to the original.

Having a few clones in there is good, but I would also want some sites that you build from scratch with full functionality.

Also, if you can find some issues with the original site and fix them or enhance the original site to make it even better that would be impressive.

I’m not sure what you mean by “credit the design”. I don’t mean that you have to find out who the designers were on the page - that may not even be available. I think just having a link to the original is sufficient. The important thing is to make it clear that this is a clone of another site - they will understand what is happening.

ohk . thanks for the help . much appreciated
