As a graphic artist, I have been advised about creating a PDF portfolio of my work since gaining my graphic design diploma. I now have my own portfolio and my work is spreading like wildfire to the consciousness of people and would-be clients with the amazing help and support of Yumpu Publishing. It is a free digital publishing site that met my needs well. However, it took me a while to find it. Good thing I did or else my PDF portfolio would have not gained that much of publicity and following. As I said, I knew I had to create a PDF portfolio of my work the moment I graduated with my degree. However, it took me a while to follow my friends’ and colleagues’ advice because first, it took me a while to come up with a comprehensive line of work to create my portfolio, and second, I could not seem to find the best way to do it. I did not know about the digital e magazine software called Yumpu Publishing then.
There are many digital publishing sites out there and believe me, I think I tried tinkering with all of them to no avail. I was never satisfied with the outcome. I have tried Issuu, Scribd, Slideshare, Magcloud, and other types of digital magazine software but I was not that happy with their features. Good thing after searching for more options and alternatives, I finally found Yumpu Publishing. It is easy to use and able to meet all my publishing needs with its features. As a graphic artist, I wanted the ability to email my work samples to possible clients and employers to show them my style and abilities. Without this ability, it will be harder for me to get across to the world who I am and what I am capable of doing. However, I cannot just attach my work samples in emails and send them in. This will take a long time and will probably flood clients’ mailboxes with huge image files. I think this will potentially irritated them. Yumpu Publishing solved my dilemma. It is a nice platform to publish your own magazine online. The e magazine program transformed my PDF portfolio into a digital magazines format that can be viewed conveniently. Viewers only need to click on a link I send that is generated by the e magazine software and they can already see my work.
