MUGI TAKEI

Portfolio of the week

July 25, 2019

 

Who are you?

My name is Mugi Takei. I was born in New York and raised in Japan. I currently live in Oakland, California with my husband and daughter. I make drawings, paintings, stop-motion animations, and prints. For most of my life my work was about womanhood, and either feeling connected to or longing for connection with oneself, with female ancestors, with other women, and with nature.

 

My work shifted after I had my daughter. I didn't make very much work or show at all for the first two years after she was born.  It was only last year that I started taking students at home and working on my own art again. Then I realized my vision was no longer the same. I feel different about everything. So, I might still be talking about similar subjects but my work definitely feels different. 




 

 

What are you working on at the moment?

I'm working on 2 larger acrylic paintings on paper of toddlers underwater and underground.
 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

My biggest influences of all time the Greek (Minoan) Art and the Medieval manuscripts. I always go back to them. It's hard for me to pick particular artists, but I love to see other artists' work and I am influenced by almost everything I see. 


With that said, lately I have been looking at the works of Fay Jones, Saya Moriyasu, Florine Stettheimer, Brian Cypher, Charles Burchfiel, and Milton Avery. 

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

Spring in the bay area. I have been discovering new colors in flowers, plants, insects and water with my daughter. Everyday life is a constant source of inspiration for me. 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I used to build my website on my own and the updating process took much longer. I love Portfoliobox because it's very easy to upload images, change things around, and organize the contents of my website. I also love how my website looks good on both computer and mobile screens.

Portfolio of the week

June 24, 2019

 

Who are you?

I'm a commercial photographer based in the south of Sweden. Working basically with interior photography. Kind of old fashioned who holds up the craftsmanship with the importance of mastering the light.

I prefer to focus on the creativity before technicality. I don't know the exact name of my flashlights or how many pixels the sensor in my cameras have. And I don't give a damn as long as everything works well and goes my way.

 

 


 

 

What are you working on at the moment?

Except for feeding my customers at the moment I try to focus on a project about loneliness. In the project I work with a young boy and water in different situations. Sometimes it´s great to be your own boss in all areas!

 

I like to play around with words or short phrases together with my pictures. If not officially at least for my self. I have my cell-phone filled with that kind. For example the boy on the Sofa “I was born close to the Rainbow near the deep blue sea. Grew up in the desert praying for rain.” Or the boy with the sharks “Wish You Were Here”.

 

 

 

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

I get my ideas and find my inspiration all over, while driving my car or when I can't sleep at night. But mostly I get my inspiration inside music.

For me music and photography goes together hand in hand. Good music creates pictures in my mind and good pictures radiates the feeling of music to me. 

 

Lately I find myself glancing at young photoshop artists. I like their complete outside of the box mentality. Some of them are lazy (just like some photographers) and tend to choose the easy way out with parts of pictures that are easy to match. But the ones that goes beyond, they are really crazy.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I like the “clean” thing about Portfoliobox. The easiness that let me focus on my own creativity and work. The support are nothing but great, fast and accurate. I can even explain my problem in Swedish and get a solution back in english. Löve it!

The secret of Section Pages

Tips & Tricks

June 07, 2019

 

What is a section page? 

Section page is a very versatile page type built with sections. There is a variety of sections to choose from. This design makes it easier for your visitors to locate important information without checking out every page listed in the menu.

 

You can display your most recent blog posts with a Blog section, or the most popular products in your e-shop in a Product section. Do you have clients' testimonials? Create a Testimonial section! Standard sections like Text, Gallery, Collection, Team, Form or Map are also available.


 

How to create a section page? 

New page → Section page →  Choose a template → Add sections.



 

 

The menu section is a great asset!

→ It can link to sections of the page.
→ It can replace your standard menu.
→ It can be sticky.

 

 

 

 

Focus on Call To Action section

A Call to Action section allows you to create buttons. They're fully customisable and can link to a page of your site, another section or a custom link.

 

 

 

Focus on Testimonial section

With a Testimonial section, you can display your clients' testimonials on your site.

 

 

 

Marini Design&Craft

Portfolio of the week

June 03, 2019

 

Who are you?

MARINI Design&Craft is a small studio of two artists Jelena and Goran Marinic, based in Belgrade, Serbia. With a great desire to create beautiful and useful things, our love for woodcarving has grown into a line of kitchen and home essentials. Inspired by the natural textures and world outside our door. Finding inspiration in nature, trees, rivers, and cosey domestic life.  We design and make wooden trays, homeware decoration objects, and kitchenware with a timeless quality. Making everything with love, thoughtfulness, and with care for the future of the world, we live in. 

 


 

What are you working on at the moment?

Currently, we are preparing for a big project - manufacturing large quantities of decorative trays and tableware for the hotel chain located on Mykonos. Also, we are making our new series of mini-trays. The concept is based around the idea to have beautifully arranged office desk with handcrafted wooden pen holder or a jewelry tray on your nightstand. Something that will enrich your living or working space and inspire you with its design and uniqueness. 

 

Is everything in your website handmade?

All our items are handmade and designed in our studio. Handmaking one piece at the time and giving it our full attention, the process usually starts with rough sketches, after that we make a "prototype" that we apply in different types of wood. It never ceases to amaze us how certain shapes or design looks different depending on the type of wood that we use. For example, a spoon made out of maple gives a such a different impression than the same spoon carved in plum wood. We are especially lucky to have our studio located in orchards rich area where the tradition of planting and growing fruit trees are well established. This gives us a great opportunity for responsible sourcing of the materials, using beautiful and rare types of fruitwood (plum, apple, apricot, pearwood) for our work. 

 


 

 

How does your workplace look like?

Our woodworking studio is located in a suburban area, with the view on the garden and a big yard. It is a perfect place to do craving in the open air in spring and summer time. It consists of some basic woodworking tools, chisels, drills, and saws. We like that old school woodshop feel with no big industrial machinery involved. 

 

Where can we buy your products?

You can find our products in Zürich at Edition Populaire, in Vienna Die Sellerie, and in Belgrade at Domino and Makadam. Currently, we are in negotiations with several stores and we believe during this year we will be present in a few more places in Europe and North America. Also, we are working on different ways to reach our customers, making our products more accessible via our own online store. 

 




 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

The first thing we like about using Portfoliobox is a simple but great design for page layouts. For somebody, who is just starting to learn about building and organizing web content but wants to have a presence on the internet as soon as possible Portfoliobox is an excellent choice, you made it very easy to navigate through the back end, and it has great UI and UX design. Switching from the presentation site to the online shop will skip the intermediator phase for our customers, for that reason, Portfoliobox is the perfect platform for us, the transition will not take a lot of our time. Affordability and constant online support is what made us stay. You’re doing a great job :-)

Gennifer Wagayen

Portfolio of the week

May 26, 2019

 

 

Who are you?

I'm Gennifer Wagayen, a Filipino illustrator raised in England. My work would be described as very detailed and colourfully whimsical, which is mainly inspired from my fascination with mythologies and the magic in nature!

 

What are you working on at the moment?

I'm working on several projects, including book cover designs, though my main focus at the moment is a children's graphic novel that I'm excited to eventually share with everyone! It is still in its early stages, but I will be posting some concept art soon.





 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

I absolutely love the works of Alphonse Mucha and Victo Ngai! Both their illustrations are akin to something out of a classical fairytale book, yet so contemporary. There's always something that will inspire me from them.

 

 

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

The other day, I visited the local bookstore with a friend. The store was displaying their Hokusai art book collections - just from the book cover I was really inspired to just draw something right that moment! I also bought the book in the end.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I've always had a great experience with Portfoliobox and I think what makes them a great platform is their customer service. The staff are friendly and are always happy to help out - paired that with the lovely themes they have to provide you a way to display your portfolio efficiently, it's the perfect place for both experienced and new creatives to establish their website!

Brady Pappas

Portfolio of the week

May 13, 2019

 

Who are you?

I am a 22-year-old portrait and fashion photographer and content creator based in Pennsylvania. As an artist, I’m most attracted to movement and rich color and put composition at the forefront of my creative process. I’ve styled 90% of my portfolio and am heavily inspired by fashion.

 

What are you working on at the moment?

I recently just printed my first book because I’m beginning the hunt for representation. I’ve also been producing Instagram resources to help photographers in my area stay inspired as small-town artists. I want people to know that you can create anywhere! I also juggle an amazingly busy, creative schedule at a digital media company! I really love content creation and currently have my hand in some exciting projects that I have to stay quiet about for just a bit longer…! I’m thankful to live a busy creative life.

 

 

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

The work and career of Annie Leibovitz have been the most inspiring to me since I started taking pictures. I first became a fan of Annie after seeing her Disney Dream Portrait Series. As a self-taught photographer, I’ve always been inspired by photographers I follow on YouTube and Instagram! Jessica Kobeissi, Flannery Underwood and Jon Sams are a few people who I admire.

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

Lately, I’ve been really inspired by different color schemes and how I can make my photos look more cohesive through color. I like to push for a sense of harmony between my subject and background. Other than that, I’m always just inspired to be a better person and artist. No matter where my career takes me, I think it’s nice to remember that there’s always something new to learn and always room to grow.

 

 

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

I love how easy it is to share my content. I’m a big fan of minimalist design and appreciate the sleek and simple way I can showcase my work.

Laura Hough

Portfolio of the week

May 06, 2019

 

Who are you?

Hello! My name is Laura and I'm originally from Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England and only recently I've moved down to Swansea, in Wales. Drawing was always one of my favourite hobbies, at the age of 31 I decided to do something about it go back to university and study for my BA in Illustration and after a lot of hard work I came out with a First Class degree with Honours. I would consider myself a 'jack of all trades' as I love to try out animation, risograph printing, lino cut, traditional letterpress, watercolours, gouache, and pattern design! 

 

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I'm currently working on my MA in Visual Communication: Contemporary Dialogues at University Wales Trinity Saint David. I recently purchased an Adana Letterpress and looking at getting some of my illustrations made into plates to see how they will turn out. Also, I'm working on creating stock and hoping to open my own little shop on my website!

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

I think life itself is my biggest influence on my work, I love reportage illustration and drawing from everything that is going on around me. I was very lucky and bumped into Michael Rosen in Wolverhampton train station who noticed me sketching people in the platform, he had a look through my sketchbook and told me to always keep drawing from life, it's the biggest resource that we have available for free and it's all around us. 

 

At the moment I'm loving work from Emma Carlisle, Laura Carlin and James Davies.

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

Wales, the country and people are amazing and full of passion and fire for their country. The beaches and castles are beautiful, my favourite has to be Laugharne Castle as well as the language. 
 

Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, has been a big influence in my illustrations recently.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Just how easy it has been to set up my website, upgrade my account, attach a domain name. I had a look at creating a shop on the website and that is currently a work in progress, but it's been completely hassle free.

All about image quality, size and resolution

Tips & Tricks

April 20, 2019


1. Image resolution

All images that are larger than 1920 pixels, in width or height, before upload will be resized to 1920 pixels during upload. To avoid quality loss, we recommend that you upload images that are 1920 pixels or smaller. Note that images that are smaller than 1920 pixels, will not be resized. 
 



What about dpi?

Dpi (dots per inch) only matters when it comes to printing or scanning. Monitors don't have dots but pixels, so dpi value has no effect on the quality of an image viewed on a screen or uploaded online.

 

2. Image size

To upload an image in Portfoliobox, the file size cannot exceed 12Mb. The file size of an image is measured in kilobytes (K), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB). The file size is affected by the pixel dimensions of the image and its format. Because of the varying compression methods used by GIF, JPEG and PNG formats, file sizes can vary considerably for the same pixel dimensions.

 

3. Image color profile

Before uploading your images to your Portfoliobox site, make sure their color profile is sRGB. If you are using Photoshop go to File > Save for Web. This will make sure that the images will be optimized for web browsers.

 

4. Image quality

The higher quality your images have, the heavier the files would be. When you have lots of big and heavy image files on your website, it will affect your page speed. You can speed up the loading of your website by slightly reducing your image quality. In Portfoliobox, you can adjust the image quality by clicking on the Cogwheel Icon > Settings > General > Website > Image Quality. The image quality scale is from -1 to 1. -1 is the lowest and 1 is the highest. You can try out different quality level to find the best option for your website.
