“MNL” is the world’s entry point into the Philippines. Historically known for indigenous crafts such as weaving, furniture making, and shoe manufacturing, the Philippines is now entering a new Creative Age: programming, design, architecture, illustration, and animation, to name a few. PortfolioMNL’s mission is to bring these creative forces together to strengthen, inspire, and participate in the global creative economy.
We provide free online portfolios, in THE place where employers and colleagues have an eye on you. Our platform puts the spotlight on creative talent, not just resumes. Seeing is believing.
What happens when word-of-mouth comes up empty? Businesses need more options: fast and accurate. PortfolioMNL is the only Philippine jobsite dedicated to discovering and hiring creative professionals. It’s the bridge between creative pros and companies seeking to hire them. It’s a marketplace where both communities can easily find each other and get down to the business of fun.
by creatives, for creatives
PortfolioMNL is the brainchild of Creative Director, Rina Malonzo and Trina Dela Rama, writer and graphic designer. Upon returning to Manila in March 2009, they wondered how they could find creative talent to help start their destign studio. Limited to friends’ recommendations, their search quickly ended with a handful of creatives — each of whom was brilliant but not quite the right fit. While staring at a dead end, the lightning bold hit and PortfolioMNL was born.
