Wordpress for Creative Portfolios
In the realm of online portfolios, the big news recently was Adobe's purchase of Behance to augment the social aspect of the Creative Cloud. But Adobe's not the only game in town. Automattic, the parent company of WordPress.com has announced that it is now offering themes and services for creative portfolios.
Currently Wordpress.com has 31 portfolio themes to choose from (19 are free, the rest are a premium offering). All themes can be personalized with items like custom headers, background images, menus for free. The Custom Design upgrade ($30 annual fee) allows users access to additional fonts, colors, and custom CSS.
Other features include custom domains, group portfolios for collaborative work, additional storage, privacy controls, and the ability to create multiple portfolios with a single account.
