Just a quick note to let you know about a side project I've been working on recently.
It's called FolioHD, and it's a great way to showcase your portfolio of digital work, like photography and even website design. Here's what a portfolio site can look like, without any technical setup or hassle: http://gooley.foliohd.com
I have a lot of friends who are getting into photography, and as a result, want a way to show off their work online. I used to always set them up with a Wordpress blog, installing Wordpress manually on my server each time. Then we'd install a Wordpress theme that would work for their needs. This was a tedious process, so I wanted to come up with a solution - something they could do on their own from start to finish.Enter: FolioHD
Here's a screenshot of the user interface:
I teamed up with a buddy of mine, developer and photographer Christopher Gooley and soon after I shared the idea with him, we had a working prototype. We've been busy adding features ever since. Here's some of the things FolioHD can do:
- A homepage rotator of your best work
- Full theming support
- A contact form
- Google Analytics integration
- Domain binding (use yourwebsite.com rather than yourname.foliohd.com)
- Your own email alias on your own domain
And this is just the start. We've got lots more coming, like cool themes that will really make your work pop.So if you know anyone who is looking for a way to easily get their portfolio online, tell them to check out http://foliohd.com. They'll be up and running in seconds; it's the quickest and easiest way to get a professional-looking portfolio.
