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!

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!

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.

Who are you?

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!

 

What are you working on at the moment?

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...)

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

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.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox enabled me to create easy and attractive content for me to share with clients and prospects!

Meg Rennie

Portfolio of the week

Who are you?

My name is Meg Rennie, and I’m a visual artist and illustrator from Melbourne, Australia. Most of my pieces are mixed media collages. I colour my paper with acrylic paint, creating different textures and patterns with lots of brushes and sponges, then cut my shapes from these papers, layering them to build a picture. I love cinema, and art and design from the 1950s and ‘60s, and I think these are the influences that show in my work. I love to paint girls, children, domestic scenes, food and nature.

 

I have exhibited my work in galleries in Melbourne such as No Vacancy, in.cube8r, and Fort Delta, and at the SVA in New York, and my illustrations have been in publications such as Assemble PapersVoiceworks, and Lateral Magazine. It is my dream in the future to create and illustrate picture books.

 

What are you working on at the moment?

At the moment I’m working on a project that I’m very excited about: making a series of illustrations of people cooking, for my first solo exhibition this June. I have been documenting people from all over Melbourne cooking and sharing their food, to explore how cooking connects us with our family, builds our communities, invites cultural exchange, and helps us to engage with our city. I’ve visited chefs, food writers, community leaders, artists, and passionate home cooks for this project, and had incredibly inspiring conversations about food, community, and creative pursuits – I’ve also been treated to a lot of delicious food!
 

The series is called The Melbourne Kitchen Project, and the exhibition will be held at Signal Gallery, Northbank, Flinders Walk, June 20th – 23rd.

 

Who are your biggest influences in the industry?

There are so many incredibly talented illustrators working now, I see something that blows me away every day! I love the work of Carson Ellis, Christian Robinson, Monika Forsberg, Min Pin and Yeji Yun, to name just a few. My greatest artistic influences are probably still the artists and authors I grew up loving: Tove Jansson, Lucy Cousins, Ludwig Bemelmens, Lauren Child, Mary Blair, and Eric Carle are all at the top of my list.

 

What was the last thing that inspired you?

A few weeks ago, when the wonderful poet Mary Oliver passed, I re-read her poem Wild Geese. It hasn’t left my head since. That poem doesn’t just inspire me to try and make something beautiful, as she did. It inspires me to live, and to really enjoy my life. To me, that’s the best and most important thing that art can do.

 

What do you like about Portfoliobox?

Portfoliobox has been a wonderful platform for me; I needed something intuitive and that would be easy to update, and it has certainly been that for me. The templates available have allowed me to easily create a portfolio that looks beautiful and is easy for people to navigate. I have also found the service to be very supportive and attentive."
