THE MNL STORY
BY CREATIVES, FOR CREATIVES
PortfolioMNL is the brainchild of Rina and Trina, a creative director from New York and a writer-art director from Manila. Upon returning in March 2009, they wondered how they might find other creative talent for their design 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.
PortfolioMNL was created to give creatives a platform to market their skills and be found by employers and collaborators around the world. For creatives, it levels the playing field so it’s not whom they know, but how good their work is. For employers, it means an abundance of choice and accurate hiring.
A GREAT IDEA
In April 2013, PortfolioMNL bested 700 entries and won a spot in IdeaSpace, the Manny V. Pangilinan-run incubation program that provides tech start-ups with funding and support.
