For designers, photographers, illustrators and writers, their portfolios are the main collection of their works that show their unique perspective. Because of the broader reach of online galleries and portfolios, they are becoming ubiquitous in the art scene. Stackable’s flexibility makes it one of the best and easiest ways to build your online portfolio.
Portfolios are very important because they embody the innate talent and skills honed by artists. Stackable has blocks specially designed with these portfolios and galleries in mind to let the art speak for itself.
Blocks for Great Images
These blocks are perfect for showcasing your gorgeous work.
1. Image Box block
The Image Box block was specially designed to display images and artoworks. Easily add hover effects, hover colors and short descriptions about each piece.
Traditional art pieces
I usually paint abstract, still life, and portraits using acrylic, watercolor, or oil on canvas. I draw inspiration from the people I meet and the stories that they have.
2. Video Pop-up block
The video pop-up block is a great way of including videos in your portfolio. You can display processes, a digital tour of your most recent art exhibit or a montage of your favorite artworks.
3. Feature block
The Feature block is great for displaying your central and most important pieces using a large section.
4. Card block
The Card block can be used to highlight your noteworthy pieces or to share information about you as an artist. The card’s modern layout is perfect for drawing attention to important information.
5. Header block
Portfolio sites usually start with a great header. As your opening salvo, your header should serve as a snapshot of your work. Use the Header block to make your header as striking so visitors can get a good feel of what your works are like.
6. Feature Grid block
Use the Feature Grid block to display your other works in a gallery format.
