We knew it was a priority to let the work do the talking and so have focussed on a clean yet bold approach to really let you showcase your best work. We want clients and other creatives to be in awe of the amazing work that our students and graduates are capable of.

As well as creating a platform where work can shine we also had to tie in our mission to help  young creative talent break into industry. We do this by bringing real creative briefs, with real  budgets to our creative community in which they can cut their teeth on anything from logo design through to film & animation.This is why we now allow you to highlight the work you’ve submitted on the site with the briefs that you’ve responded to whether you’ve won a brief or not.

Talking to a lot of prospective employers we know that they want to see how creatives respond to a brief and Concept Cupboard is now a great way to do that. We tie together creative projects, submissions and testimonials to show a true representation of how amazing this next generation truly is.

 Creative Portfolio Example

Another reason for crafting your portfolio on Concept Cupboard is that we’ll be able to connect you with potential employers. From small freelance jobs through to large agency placements we need to have something to show them on your behalf and those creatives with completed portfolios will the be the first we approach.

For too long now we’ve seen the vicious circle that young people are stuck in. You can’t get a job without experience and in order to get experience you need a job. Frustrating. We’re confident that these portfolios will be another step towards helping solve this problem.

Your new portfolios can be found by going to the following address: http://www.conceptcupboard.com/USERNAME

They’re free to use and always will be.

Once you’ve got it all in order make sure to tweet us @conceptcupboard with your portfolio link and we’ll be more than happy to help share your work around the web!
