For my UX portfolio, I was planning to display the title in white. I was looking for some suggestions for the color scheme I could use and a decent background for the white title text. Thank you.

Dark backgrounds can be particularly good for white text But there are some guidelines to follow when doing so:

When reversing colour out, eg white text on black, make sure you increase the leading, tracking and decrease your font-weight. This applies to all widths of Measure. White text on a black background is a higher contrast to the opposite, so the letterforms need to be wider apart, lighter in weight and have more space between the lines.
