How Digital Portfolios Work Harder for Grads

As the end of the school year approaches, students everywhere are getting ready for graduation. Whether they’re finishing college, high school or just math class, many students are capping off their work with a beautiful online portfolio.

Digital publishing offers a smart choice for students and anyone planning to present their work on the web. In this article we will reveal why digital publishing is perfect for portfolios!


For school final projects, like this Guide to Marketing for the Performing Arts, digital publishing takes the worry out of presentations.

Keep your audience focused on your ideas by choosing the streamlined Slide mode. When it’s time to present, your portfolio’s shareable link means it’s accessible online from any device—no more lost USB keys, forgotten passwords or unreadable files. Plus, your publications load fast on Calaméo. They’re ready to go in under a second, even on mobile 4G networks.


This beautiful interior design and architecture portfolio shows that digital publishing’s light footprint doesn’t mean giving up sharp visuals.

Our innovative conversion technology handles a wide variety of file types with ease. Even files up to 500 MB are transformed into superb digital publications, with high-quality images, crystal-clear text and fun flipbook effect. And did we mention our in-text search feature? Ready automatically once your portfolio is published, the search bar will let potential employers find what they’re looking for faster.


Speaking of search, there’s a lot to applaud about this graphic and web design portfolio:

The publisher has included a link to her own website so that readers browsing her work can simply click to learn more, which is a great way to drive traffic to her site. She’s also cleverly optimized her Calaméo account page for search by adding a profile picture, account description and site link. That’s a brilliant strategy for helping more people find your work.

Thanks to digital publishing, your portfolio will not only stand out but also do more to increase your online visibility. More great features like private publications, easy embeds and advanced statistics make Calaméo the right tool for putting your work out there.
