It’s pretty obvious – the first portfolio, by Calvin Venus, looks professional and trustworthy. Calvin has all his best work on show too, showing that he’s clearly a very talented creative. With the first, you’re left wondering whether you’re even dealing with an actual human. This is one of the reasons why Calvin Venus has had so much success on Twine, working with artists all over the world, from Tanzania to Portugal.

He’s a great example to show that finishing off your Twine portfolio is a surefire way to get loads more opportunities and find higher quality creatives to work with. If you’ve got an avatar, featured roles and bio you’ll look approachable, professional and actually like a real person! Adding your location is a great idea too, as it means that you can find talented local creatives to work with. 

It couldn’t be easier to edit your portfolio. Just head over to www.twine.fm/settings and under ‘portfolio settings’ get everything filled out (Make sure all your images are under 6Mb and the dimensions are correct so the images don’t look blurry or skewed). When changing your location, make sure you click the ‘Change my location’ button rather than adding the location manually.output_cwnb7g

We’re also excited to announce that we’re upgrading Twine portfolios with a brand new rating system. Whenever the hirer marks a collaboration project as complete they will be asked to rate the person you worked with out of 5 stars. Ratings are designed to help you find more paid work and easy see who’s most reliable and awesome to work with.Screen Shot 2016-07-21 at 13.42.05
