Build your immersive portfolio with virtual worlds
Human beings are drawn to stories, which help us make sense of our world by letting us share others’ experiences as though they were our own. Stories help us learn to feel empathy, most importantly, stories are memorable.
The value of storytelling extends to how we
present ourselves and our abilities professionally.
Imagine being able to present yourself through a story using virtual worlds ?

What do you get to do here?

What about the virtual world?
This is a specially designed template by Metaxu studio for portfolio usage. The spaces include a series of media frames that can host square, landscape and portrait images or videos that can be placed by drag - drop - pin.
The aim is to allow flexibility for the curation process.
The environment light can be adjusted following client desire with daylight, night or dusk.
Is this a competition or workshop ?
It is a workshop.
Nonetheless, in order for you to keep the template, the more creativity, numbers of features used and virtual world experience design you put into your portfolio would be beneficial not only for you but also to Metaxu Studio to iterate on this world in order to showcase even better portfolios in the future.
That is how we will choose the best in class at the end of the batch 🎉
