Many professions fall under the umbrella of “artist,” but these talented individuals all have one thing in common: they’re passionate about their work and love to create. If you’re out there painting, acting, sewing, designing, singing, or simply creating, you probably have some great examples of your work to show off.
They may live on a website, in a photo, in a video, or even in a PDF file, to name a few, and it can be difficult to show them all off in one place. Enter Bublup.
While there are many options for making a portfolio out there, including a website or PDF, you can create a Bublup roll in a matter of minutes and showcase ANY kind of media type with it. Bublup is an amazing app for visually organizing and consolidating your content all in one place. What’s even more impressive is the ability to take that content and roll it into a beautiful, single link that anyone can view. You’ll have a customizable, easy to update portfolio that’ll give you more time to do what you love.

There are multiple ways to add items from both desktop and your mobile device.
Now that your folders are populated and organized the way you want, it’s time to create your roll portfolio. A roll is an instant web page that can be created with the click of a button but looks like it took hours to make.
Your portfolio folder may contain information about yourself as an artist, photo and video samples of your work, and links to press articles- a thorough representation of your achievements. Select “Roll An Instant Web Page” from the menu, and watch as your folder contents transform into a beautiful website. Rolls allow for customization; some options to think about are:
