You can try and avoid it all you want, but we all know deep down that it’s important in this day and age to have a social media presence that gets across your personality as best as a screen and thousands of servers can. If you haven’t yet made some kind of online portfolio it could be worth checking out Dropr, a new platform on which you can show off your artistic sensibilities in a simple and well-designed format.
Wave goodbye to coding, configuration and advertising: this is easy, clean and effective to help show off your work/pictures of cats/favourite songs as best possible. “Portfolios on Dropr are beautiful, easy to manage and naturally lend themselves to displaying any sort of media which can be found online. From picture through to interactive art and music, almost all media viewable online can be displayed in a Dropr portfolio. And as they’re promising, soon they will be supporting even more.”
The guys behind Dropr are currently crowdfunding on Indiegogo for a new version that will allow even more space, even more design options and new interfaces if you fancy putting a few pennies in the bucket. We’re very pleased to announce that they are offering 50 lucky It’s Nice That readers free, one year subscriptions to their GURU account which usually goes for a cool $99. To get your hands on this special prize just Tweet at @itsnicethat about the article or the Indiegogo campaign with the hashtag #creativefounders.
