An Adaptive Design
As more and more people browse the web using a mobile device or tablet, the importance of having a mobile-friendly website is greater than ever. Your portfolio site should be well-structured, responsive, and display your work beautifully across all browsers, smartphones and tablets.
Instead of spending countless hours creating and updating your about page, resume, and other sections of your portfolio, Format allows you to easily make changes to your website without having to code.
Your portfolio website needs to reflect your style and personality. Format enables photographers to change the theme, design, colors, fonts and other style elements to create a website that is unique.
Having a blog is a great way to connect with your audience or potential clients. You can update your blog and portfolio from the same platform to cut down on time and avoid having to hire a web-developer to help update and maintain your website.
