How does the web app look and feel to use?

Carbonmade is visually appealing and fun to use. Each page features colorful, fun images and silly text.

Uploading is simple and when finished, a user is given the opportunity to change the thumbnail for the project, add a category, hide the project, determine display options, add a title or caption, add client name, and note any information.

Users may add an email address for those viewing the portfolio to use to contact the artist. Location and telephone numbers may also be added if desired. Users may also choose to write a short biography and use tags for areas of expertise and skills. A profile pic is also optional.

Once uploaded, the portfolio is very professional in presentation. Do not be put off by the playful homepage and application pages. The final portfolios are very professional looking.

How does the registration process work?

A portfolio title, web address (for the portfolio with a extension), full name, email address, and password are required. Once provided, the user is taken to the Add a Project screen.

What does it cost to use the application?

The “Meh” plan is free and allows users to build an online portfolio of 5 projects with up to 35 images total. The “Whoo” plan, for $12/month, offers 50 projects with 500 images and 10 videos with domain binding, ad-free, video and flash projects, and tech support.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Any artist, photographer, illustrator, makeup artist, graphic designer, or student who would like to maintain a portfolio hosted online. Any artisan or professional who uses a portfolio to showcase their work can benefit from Carbonmade.
