Don't miss the new site width feature!

News

May 08, 2017

 

Introducing the new site width feature: you can now change the width of your website, allowing you to zero out the side margins. Nice, right? Find it under Layout.

 

Please note that depending on the type of layout you choose (wide, centered, left or bottom), this feature will affect your website differently. No margins, for example, will only occur if you have chosen a wide layout.

Who are you?

I am a graphic designer and illustrator based in Bordeaux, France. Illustration is omnipresent in my work as a graphic designer. I work in partnership with cultural institutions as well as with the local underground music scene and with micro edition (fanzines, linocut, etc.). 

I'm very inspired by underground comics, black and white. Music, especially punk rock and 80/90's pop-culture, greatly influences my work. The classic and fantasy 19th-century engraving also have a significant importance in my creations.

 

What is your next creative project?

My next project is about the theatrical season's program of Mimizan, a small town in the south-west of France.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is very intuitive, complete and fully dedicated to showcasing visual and graphic project which makes it a perfect tool for me.

Who are you?

My name is Misha Czumaczenko. I am a mature woman in her 20's. I am a Ukrainian immigrant living in Poland since the 90's. I am a professional model, dancer and supporting artist mostly known for participating in Poland's Next Top Model in 2014 and my appearance on the cover of CKM magazine in November 2015, although I did plenty of other more creative projects. For example, I have been a part of Penny Arcade's dance troup during her 'Bitch! Dyke! Faghag! Whore!' show performed in Poland in 2015. 

 

My work exercises my brain and intensifies my creativity, feeds my soul, but unfortunately doesn't pay me enough to live on contentedly such that I'm not stressing about money all the time. Sadly, my choice of career does not love me as much as I love it. 

 

What is your next creative project?

I am planning on collaborating with CYBERCORPSE during creation of a music video for one of his tracks. Soon I would like to add new sections to my Portfoliobox website and one of them should contain some interesting videos. 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like that I can easily create my own website without having to learn any coding and Portfoliobox has exactly what I need to make it look the way I want. It's one of the best and easiest ways to starting your first website.

Who are you?

I am a commercial fashion photographer from Australia. I picked up my first camera when I was 12 (no joke) and haven't put one down since. Throughout high school I experienced with all sorts of digital and film cameras, but now I mostly use digital. I like to control what I capture and like to see what they look like. I have a fear when I use film, that all the images on the roll turn out black. 

 

I like to describe my work as a tasteful way of showing beautiful women. There are some other photographer's works out there that looks quite tacky, but I try to focus more on the form and elegance that the women hold. From the smooth shiny skin to the way they pose themselves. I also try and get to know the models so that there's a certain energy that they can give yet also feeling comfortable in front of the camera. 

 

What is your next creative project?

Next creative project is still in the making, so I don't really want to disclose what it is just yet. But I'm extremely excited about it and cannot wait to be able to actually start on it. It's very different to what I'm doing now so it's actually going to be quite out of my comfort zone. 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox is pretty much the most amazing and easiest portfolio website I have ever come across. It's simple and so neat. Cannot believe how easy it is to upload my work and still have a professional looking book. I must admit that it presents my work so much better than any other website creator out there.

Who are you?

My name is Łukasz and I've just hit 40, so I perhaps it's time to start a midlife crisis and buy that Porsche. Seriously though, I've been doing what I am doing since 20+ years and can't think of another way to keep going. I am drifting between album covers and photography, though I dabble in video clips, set designs, layouts and whatever floats my boat and pays the bills at the same time. I've been blessed with possibilities to do what I like to do, so I try to keep the complaining at minimal
level ;)

 

My work is dark but passionate. I am not an expert in the field of talking about myself or even my creations for that matter. The ideas show up in my head, though I tend to have problems even with expressing them with words, which can be a drag sometimes, but in the end, it works. I have no idea if I am good at what I am doing and I don't care. I just want to keep doing it.

 

What is your next creative project?

I've just completed a couple of tasks: a video for a Polish metal band Decapitated, album artwork for Swedish coffee-obsessed death metallers Perkulatory, a couple of book layouts... Heading towards completing an album artwork for a German band Sun Of The Sleepless - a simple, crude, black and white imagery with lots of owls, candles and grimness. You know, black metal. Apart from that, I am not sure what's next, but something's definitely behind the corner.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I've fallen in love with the simplicity of it all. I've been website-less for 10 years because I was bored with HTML and hated the Wordpress mumbo jumbo. I've found Portfoliobox accidentally and within a day I knew that was my home. Good job, y'all.

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.

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.

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!

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.
