You’ve seen the Carbonmade portfolio tool, but never like this
Article posted on October 21, 2019
Since its inception in 2005, Carbonmade has helped more than 2 million people put their creative work on the web. Now, with the launch of Carbonmade 4, it’s coming back smarter, faster and more flexible than ever.
You might be familiar with Carbonmade from years ago. Maybe you used a Carbonmade template for your fashion portfolio, design portfolio or art portfolio. Perhaps you recall the happy unicorn face and angelic octopi pictured here:
The old Carbonmade from 2007
Well, Carbonmade 4 is not quite the tool you remember. The new Carbonmade still makes it super easy and fun to build your personalized portfolio (with zero coding knowledge),but you are no longer limited to the same old templates and options. Carbon 4 gives you a whole lot more.
Let’s start with me, Zoe.
Remember that unicorn face I was talking about earlier? Well, she’s grown up. Consider me your Carbonmade spirit guide, here to help you build the portfolio you always wanted, but without all the hassle you never wanted.
But enough about me. Let’s talk about the new Carbonmade 4.
Made for creatives
Carbonmade has always been about helping creative folks share their work online, and that’s still true. Carbonmade 4 is perfect for concept art, illustration, architecture, makeup artists, fashion design, graphic design, photography, motion design, UX design – basically, any kind of visual work. We’ve made tons of new options and tools, from image galleries to video features, with popular creative fields in mind. And we are adding more every day.
Free trial and everything included
Carbonmade is an all-in-one package, so you don’t have to worry about hosting, a domain or any other technical details. All of that comes with your subscription and happens with the click of a button.
Even better, Carbonmade is free to use until you launch. So you can try it out and even build your full portfolio without entering payment or even setting up an account. If only my hair maintenance was that easy and affordable.
Customization without coding
This is one of the best parts of the new Carbonmade website builder: No more templates.
Carbonmade 4 gives you unlimited layouts options, allowing you to mix and match, change colors, fonts, styling and just about everything else without coding. It’s all simple drag & drop. Choose a foundation based on the kind of work you do and customize to your heart’s content from there.
Easy workflows and smart design features
All of us on the Carbonmade team are designers and other creative types too, so we built the tool we would want to use ourselves.
Start setting your site up in Carbonmade and you will notice all kinds of magic happening along the way. Add an image of your project and the tool suggests complementary background colors. Drag and drop a photo onto the page and it automatically optimizes and crops it for you. You have unlimited uploads so file sizes or media types don’t matter.
Carbonmade does everything for you so your website stays fast and beautiful, and you can focus on the fun stuff.
Find new jobs and side projects
When you create your online portfolio with Carbonmade, you join our community. We’re always looking out for you (shoutout to my lovely support team in Chicago and New York!) and will even help you get discovered.
Opting in to our Talentpool puts your portfolio in relevant searches for recruiters and companies. You can change your availability at any time so people know whether you’re open for new projects. It’s like applying for a job without even trying.
If you are in need of a fresh online portfolio, I hope you'll give Carbonmade 4 a try. We are making it better every day, so send me your feedback and ideas on Twitter @carbonmade too. Or just say hello and tell me about the weird dream you had last night.
