Hello expert designers! Need your valuable opinion.


Recommended Posts

Fiverr recommend flicker for portfolio image although I think flicker is not enough for a graphic/logo designer. Because, such as a logo, A logo is not just a logo, it's a brand. It has a huge impact and it has a feeling of excitement. A good logo has a story, has a meaning, has an appeal, has a heart-touching vibe.... So, its not possible to show all meaning of a logo/design by just an image. And maximum client never identify a good designer by just see an image. But if a client saw a full history behind the logo then he can identify a real designer. And I think Behance is a portfolio site where we can show the full history behind a design. Otherwise i saw here are many of level1/2 designers didn't know the design principles which is foundation of a quality logo/design. And some level1/are giving design from free stock site. And a real designer who make his design by following design principal, he can't sell his design by low coast. 

Can we request Fiverr for allow another portfolio site?

I don't exactly understand this perhaps because I'm no logo designer myself, but Fiverr only allows you to share links of certain sites they can trust on their platform so that someone doesn't share something inappropriate or something like a virus. It's for the safety of the users on the platform.

You need to read the Fiverr Terms of Service https://www.fiverr.com/terms_of_service It’s very important Moving forward. You will be stopped from posting any outside content as a link. It has to be the original work and you must post it. That prevents fraud and malicious behavior, the Terms will say it better than me. Fiverr has very strict rules and you must read them and understand them and PLEASE don’t go against the rules because you run the risk of getting your account banded.

Have you thought about creating a PDF file that highlights one or two logos you have created with information about what makes them such a powerful brand? I think a lot of gigs have the option to upload a PDF or two for your gallery.

Yes I have uploaded 1 pdf with every gig, but if I try to include full history of a logo in a file then the file size also gets bigger. Thanks for your suggestion.

I think if you use Illustrator or coreldraw and export as a PDF, the file size should be minimal under 2MB. If you have images of a higher resolution in the design, I'd suggest you try to reduce its quality to the total file size can be under 2MB. 

 

If build a reputation on the platform, it will get a certain stage fiverr will allow you create a portfolio on your profile where you can include your case studies. 

 

I hope this helps.

There's no reason you shouldn't be able to document the entire history of a logo in more than 2mb. And you don't need more than two logo histories to impress a future client - more than that and you'll lose their attention.

Flickr is such a bizarre choice for an “official” portfolio host. I remember it being all the rage around 2010-ish. Then yahoo! acquired it and killed it immediately. I wonder if Fiverr has made a deal with them back in the day because Fiverr/Flickr sounded similar. 

I agree that it’s not a good platform for a design portfolio. It was made specifically to exhibit photography.

You can write to customer support and make suggestions. Sometimes they listen if they accumulate enough requests.

We all know that what is fever , as we know that it's a platform where you can get job or you can give job. Mostly people are there because they want job easily but there are lots of factors which depends to get job .Yes you can make a simple and attractive gig by this way you can attract people and maybe you will find job easily.we all know that competition is very very tough but one thing we should always remember that believe in yourself and no one can will come to help you ,it's just you who can help yourself .So yes you can give full description in your gig section or description section.And if you want to send a link then one by one you can send his or her through chats . But best way to get job on Fiverr is to make an attractive, simple and best gig .Don't copy others, be yourself always. but if that your portfolio can be uploaded here https://create.vista.com/colors/palettes/ So start this and I can say you will get job easily.

If you have a file size that's too big and you're not sure how to play around with the compression setting go to google and type "Adobe PDF Compress". Adobe offers an auto compression for pdf's on their site for free.
