Portfolios are the business cards of the art world. The most talented artist in the country could easily be overlooked without a well-designed portfolio to showcase his or her work. Although a number of tools exist for just this purpose, Dropr is one of the few provides a platform for all types of “creatives” – including those whose work goes beyond visual art. The web-application offers a way for bands, filmmakers, and multimedia designers to show off their best work online.
Dropr can be used for two main purposes – to present your own work, or to get ideas by looking at the artwork that other users have posted. To create your own portfolio with Dropr, sign up for an account and connect the platform to any networks you already use. Dropr connects with LinkedIn, Vimeo, Flickr, and SoundCloud (to name a just a few), which means you can easily import any work you’ve saved in those networks into Dropr with very little effort. Continue uploading any content you’d like to post in your portfolio – Dropr accepts text, audio, video, and image files – and design your portfolio page to fit the aesthetic you like.
Artists who work in group collectives and musicians who belong to numerous bands may find Dropr especially useful, since the platform lets individual users manage multiple portfolios from a single dashboard page. Bands can also create group boards, which any person with the appropriate credentials can edit and control.
