We launched Actolio into beta a little over a year ago. In that time there have been hundreds of actors that have trusted us to manage their online acting portfolios.
The default may not be for everyone
We’ve enjoyed seeing the beautiful portfolios that have been created, however we noticed a couple of things that we could improve on to help our actors ensure their portfolios really shined online.
For example, the main view of our current template requires a large landscape image for optimal display. However, many actors want to use an image with a portrait orientation as their main image. That makes perfect sense to us! We understand that our default template may not be for everyone.
Additionally, there were a few other simple styling, mobile, and usability updates that we wanted to offer to ensure that our actors have access to the latest best practices when it comes to website development.
The New Template!
So, without further ado, we’re proud to reveal the new Portrait Template!
A demo of this new portfolio template will be available over the next couple of weeks while the option of using the new template for your personal site will be available in May 2015.
The start of more exciting changes
This is just the start of many exciting changes coming to Actolio over the next couple of months. These changes will be aimed at bringing incredible value to your Actolio portfolios and ensuring that you have access to the best tools for presenting yourself professionally online.
If you’re not familiar with our existing offerings, create an actor portfolio for yourself and get a feel for what we have to offer. If you would like to stay updated on the new portfolio template as well as all the other exciting changes coming to Actolio, be sure to follow us on Twitter.
