Tips & Tricks
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!Visit site
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.Visit site
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
We are AFAB, a Spanish architecture firm founded in 2017 and led by Aitor Frías and Joaquin Perailes. AFAB keeps one foot in the most contemporary architecture and the other one in the purest tradition. His work ranges from large-scale urban projects with impact on the city to the design of tiny objects, always in the context of an intellectual research.
Currently we are really busy with several projects. We are finishing a dwelling refurbishment in Covent Garden (London), preparing the beginning of some courses on architecture that Joaquín and Aitor will give next summer at the universities of Barcelona, Basque Country and Cartagena. And of course, getting ready for Europan, one of the most important and exciting competitions in contemporary architecture.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A bug causing the last service added to not be fully editable has been fixed.
The team fixed a bug causing the image titles to display incorrectly on some dynamic templates (product & link pages).
If you have had problems with the colour of the login button on password protected page, you should not longer encounter those problems. The button colour now followe the paragraph colour, chosen under Colours & Fonts.
When sharing a blog post on Facebook, the link lacked "www" which resulted a broken link. This bug is now eliminated!
I'm a Los Angeles-based photographer who spend a good amount of time in New York and DC as well.
My next creative project is a book I've been working on for some time now as well as some other shoots I have lined up.
I think my biggest influences in the industry are people like Mark Borthwick and Juergen Teller, along with people who are self publishing their own books and zines all the time.
The last thing, and something that inspires me everyday, is the walks around the neighborhood I take with my dog.
I like Portfoliobox because of its ease of use and good clean templates.Visit site

I'm a web photographer, I work for high street brands and their online shops. But most of the recent pictures on my website are from my personal work. I'm fond of fashion and beauty photography, and I've been attracted to fashion since I was a child!
Last year, I started a new personal work. I want to explore the French garment industry, and more precisely the sustainable part of it. I visited a farm in the south of France and I will be meeting breeders, manufactures, designers... and taking pictures along the process. I'm also working on a beauty series with bugs (butterflies, beetles...)
David Lachapelle made me want to become a photographer, and as a kid I wanted to become Jean-Paul Gautier. Pop culture has shaped my eye in terms of music, cinema and visual arts.
