The Spotify Portfolio
Create something to get exposure of my skills and showcase my previous work.
How do you make something original out of your portfolio of creative work? I created a new portfolio at Spotify. And while we’ve seen portfolios been built on platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Instagram before, this is the first time its been done entirely on Spotify.
While of course being forced to work within Spotify’s limitations, I tried to use it as an advantage. Each of my advertising cases were presented as an album, with the cover image used to show visuals. The place for song titles were used to make a short description of each case. And the actual songs were used as audio case presentations of my work. Even the biography was created in the same way. So now everyone can save my advertising work next to their favorite albums and playlists. And as a bonus, I'm also getting payed each time someone is ”listening” to my portfolio!
The portfolio was first written about in Adweek, one of the biggest advertising-trade publications in the world, and was after that picked up by a variety of industry media around the world. It was also widely spread in social media as a creative and groundbreaking way of getting exposure for a portfolio.
