Background image — A handbook [2]

Portfolio of the day

April 25, 2017

 

As explained earlier, choosing a background image for your site can be tricky. Let's see here how the different image position options (Fill, Best fit, Tile and Centered) will render on different screens. 
 

 


FILL

The background image will fill the screen and will be cut as explained on the previous guide.

 

 


Best fit

The image will display entirely but won't fill the screen.

 

 

Tile 

The image will be duplicated and display as tiles. This works better with a small image in order to create a pattern.

 

 

Centered

The image will be centered on the screen. Depending on the size of the image you upload,
it may be cut and look more like Fill or Best fit.

Super Freak

Portfolio of the day

April 24, 2017

 

Who are you?

I am Super Freak and I'm a freelance Illustrator/Designer based in Birmingham, UK. In two words I think my work is weird and thoughtful. My main tool is my notepad as I like to keep track of funny phrases or scenarios I come across which I then translate into some goofy illustration/project. When it comes to visual style, I like to keep things simple and bright, taking inspiration from cartoons and Pop Art!

 

What is your next creative project?

I'm juggling a few projects at the moment for some new clients but once they're checked off I plan to spend some time on developing my own clothing range which is something I've been looking into for a while now!

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I've used Portfoliobox for almost 2 years now and I generally find it super straightforward and fun to use. The main thing I've recently come to appreciate though is the customer help services. The team are really clear and quick to respond to any issues I need help with.

Clémence Pivot

Portfolio of the day

April 21, 2017

 

Who are you?

I am Clémence Pivot, I am 23 years old, I'm from Paris and I am a Junior Art Director. I studied art direction, graphic design and visual communication at Intuit.Lab School in Paris. I love edition, advertising, making poster with typography, I like black, white and grey things! I am also a dancer (I start dancing 17 years ago!) I do ballet, modern'Jazz, Rn'b, Street Jazz etc etc! I get inspiration from everything I can see, like movie, books, clothes, photography, dance... I love Scandinavian style, like it's always pure and simple! So I try to make a melting pot of everything and create my own personal things! 

 

I think I try to put myself in every project I create. I try to create delicate and sensitive work because its represent a side of my personality. I'm a dreamer and a tidy person so I put this side of myself too in my works. So if I need to describe clearly my work I would like to say: sensitive, delicate, mysterious, black and white (and grey)! 

 

What is your next creative project?

For my next creative project, I want to make a video clip where I can mix dance and graphic design, it is kind of my dream to do that because it is my two passions (with a super good music of course!). 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

What I like about Portfoliobox is the simplicity! You can use it so easily! You start from nothing but you still have good example to follow if you want to. You can create your own personal portfolio and you can make it look just like yourself so it is kind of awesome!

Pandagunda

Portfolio of the day

April 20, 2017

 

Who are you?

My name is Ashraf, I’m a visual artist based in Gothenburg, Sweden. I use anything that can be interesting visually to express my ideas. The past 2 years I've been fascinated by the world of digital art, 3d and coding, and I’ve been in front the screen ever since :) My work is mostly personal and abstract in term of concept, and I try to keep it visually interesting and experimental —but always changing.

 

What is your next creative project?

Right now, I'm in between works so I’m taking a break to learn more stuff in 3d especially Houdini and the VEX functions. I'm hoping to learn all the tools I need to do a  personal work that I have in mind.
 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I was really happy when I found  Portfoliobox. I was always searching for something very minimal, modern which focuses only on the photos that I upload and does not require so much time or knowledge to update my work in the future. The people behind it have very nice aesthetic, and most importantly, they're always updating with new features and layouts and they have very responsive and helpful customer service.

Who are you?

I'm Manuela Pickart, a 23-year-old Photographer from Munich, Germany. I finished my design studies in Munich this year, now working as a picture editor for a women's magazine and as freelance photographer. My main focus is on portraiture, lifestyle photography and sometimes fashion editorials as well. My photography focuses on daylight, simple and clean motives and a bright look. I like to work with diverse people, capturing them the way they are.
 

 

What is your next creative project?

My next creative project will probably be called "beloved ones", capturing different couples. 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is such an easy way to present your creative work professionally. I like the plain and simple designs, which let the viewers focus on your work.

Who are you?

I am a fashion and portrait photographer currently based in Dubai. I work in the region with local magazines as well as international fashion titles like Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Stylist, Harpers Bazaar, etc. My work is vibrant, colorful, energetic; I like to depict strong women and men, a bit mysterious, vibrating strong energies. I like using interesting architectural locations and unusual nature places for my fashion shoots. 

 

What is your next creative project?

I have quite a few projects on my mind, they're all fashion and beauty related. I have recently shot in Cape Town, South Africa and 3 new shoots are going live very soon. 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is very easy to use and I like its simple display. As a photographer I like it to be very clean, focusing only on my photos and having them conveniently showcased.

Concept & Set design by Daan Habets | www.daanhabets.com

 

Who are you?

I am an Amsterdam-based set designer specializing in miniature scenes made out of cardboard, paper and photo prints. My work is a bit like the peep-show-boxes you may have made as a child. Remember? With your eye pressed up against the peephole you stood like a voyeuristic giant outside that tiny box, but at the same time you’d feel like you were inside that box, in the middle of the story being displayed. I’m hooked on that sense of wonder, curiosity and surprise

 

What is your next creative project?

I can’t talk about that one yet - sorry.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is easy and good-looking with a super helpful support team to back that up.

Ezequiel Barranco

Portfolio of the day

March 27, 2017

 

Who are you?

I'm Ezequiel Barranco and I am a designer. I live in Seville, an especially nice but very traditional city where I find it hard to find jobs. I love music. Now I have a promoter of punk, postpunk concerts ... which is called Mango Tonight, and I have worked many years as a DJ in a rock room in my city, and most of the things I do are related to music. I really like Classical semiotics in the history of art and symbology. Now I'm making a dictionary of semiotics in the history of art to apply in my designs inspired by others that already exist (I recommend Cirlot Symbols Dictionary).

 

What is your next creative project?

I am currently doing the images of a fanzine on the night (I want to seriously start thinking about doing my own work), the billboard of a Psychedelia festival in Zaragoza, northern Spain. (Zaragoza Psych Fest) and a series of posters for concerts by Jägermeister Music in Seville.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like many things. I like that you personally write to me and do not talk like machines and the truth is that I do not know what to say against. Everything is getting better :) It's great.

Who are you?

I am a portrait photographer- from Hamburg, Germany. I am aaalmost 30 years old and enjoy shooting portrait on location and studio – though outside shootings are by far my favorite ones ;-) 

I mostly shoot actors and the only reason I am in photography really is because I like good conversations and meeting new people. Any good shoot also comes with a wonderful conversation – especially with actors. With my photographs I like to show the connection I had during the conversation with that person. I usually work without assistance so the connection between the "subject" and me even grows bigger and more intimate.

 

What is your next creative project?

No certain creative project, I feel like my job is a life-time creative project. 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox gives me the chance to just NOT care about all the complicating stuff that comes with websites/portfolios etc. It's easy and quick and JUST exactly what I need.

Meike Kenn & Adam Naparty

Portfolio of the day

March 22, 2017

 

Who are you?

Meike photographs for agencies, magazines, fashion shoots and portraits. Whether in the studio or on location she searches constantly for unique light, and embraces the staging process and production. While traveling she documents her surroundings with visceral, intimate images that give narrative to space. Her love of collaborative work, intuition and positive vibe always create motion and possibilities on set.

Adam photographs and films landscapes, people, interior space, architectural design, and objects such as the FIFA World Cup Trophy. Through his aerial photography he finds unrestrained perspectives, and on the ground he unleashes the inherent motion contained in the still image. He stands ready for the new, and always has his eyes open for inspiring moods and light.

 

What is your next creative project?

• Meike: Meike, Gus und Lester / a self portrait series examining stereotype and gender.

• Adam: Aerial & Timelapse Documentation, Berlin

• Stay tuned www.facebook.com/napartykenn and www.napartykenn.com made with Portfoliobox.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Simple, quick and easy to use, helping to create a stylish presentation. Lovely support.
