Visual Gazette FAQs

What is Visual Gazette?

Visual Gazette is a showcase portfolio for designers and artists. A community answering the question, “What are you working on?”. Web designers, graphic designers, illustrators, icon artists, typographers, logo designers, and other creative types share up  screenshots that show their work, process, and current projects. Visual Gazette is also a place where designers and companies promote their work and products, find designers for hire, and receive work inquiries.

I can't log in to my account. What should I do?

You can have your login information resent to you via email by clicking on 'Forgot Password'.  If that doesn't work then email us at visualgazette@visualgazette.com and our staff will take care of you.

What kind of media can I upload to my portfolios?

Images: jpg, jpeg, gif, png

Multimedia: can be added via the embed option

Each of your images should be kept at around 100k. Images should be saved at 72dpi.

Images can be uploaded at any size. For display purposes, all images are resized to a max width of 700 pixels. For best results you should upload an image greater than 1400px for the width. If your image is larger than this we will keep the full size image and include a link to this so that a viewer can see it in full detail.

How do I send someone a link to my portfolios?

Your Portfolios come with a personal URL that you can send to friends and potential employers as a direct link. The default personal URL is https://visualgazette.com/profile/{your_user_name}/

Your "User Name" is the name you use to log-in to the site. So, if your User Name is "CoreJr" your personal URL is "https://visualgazette.com/profile/CoreJr".
