Using Creative Halo

Portfolio guidelines

Your portfolio will be your first impression and it’s a great way to highlight all of your best pieces and show your abilities.

So, we’ve created these portfolio guidelines to help you present your work the best way possible.

We hope you’ll find them useful and don’t forget you’re required to upload at least 4 albums in order for your account to be activated.
Personal info
Please, do not place your last name or contact info on your profile nor in your albums’ description. Presenting all of your work in one album is not acceptable.
Uploading albums
When uploading a portfolio, please segment your albums according to different clients.
Cover image
Uploading great cover images for your albums is a key part of creating your portfolio. While browsing albums and creative talents, your cover image will be the first thing one sees. So, it needs to be high-quality and to represent your work the best way possible.
Category - Industry - Specialty section
In order to help clients search for talents experienced in specific category and industry they need and with a specific set of skills - specifying category, industry and specialty is mandatory.

For example, you have done a graphic design work for a pharmacy store and their launch campaign. So, your Category is Graphic Design, Industry is Pharmaceutical and Specialty can be Lead Designer or Art Director.
Portfolio suggestions
  • You are required to upload at least 4 albums.
  • Every album should have between 4 and 10 items.
  • High-quality images/videos should be uploaded.
  • All images should be the same width.
  • White space/spacing between images is preferable.
What we believe is not acceptable
  • Presenting all of your work in one album
  • Pixelated images
  • Low-quality images

Here are two great examples of portfolios done right.

Privacy settings
On Creative Halo, you choose who can see the portfolio on your profile. While your basic information is always public, you can decide whether to set your portfolio on Public or Private mode.

Public mode allows everyone to see your portfolio and share it on several social networks, while Private mode allows it only to other members of Creative Halo community.
Other information
If someone other than you has been working on the album, please give credits to those talents.
Do not forget to write a project outline for every album.
If you have additional questions
Please don't hesitate to contact your account manager.

Our Policy:
Welcome to the Creative Halo website (the “Site”). Creative Halo LLC (“CH”, “we”, “us”, and/or “our”) operates this Site to provide our users (“you” and “your”) with information about CH and its platform, which is designed to build up a network of creative talents and clients looking for services (the “Services”) and a place. This Privacy Policy sets out how Creative Halo collects, retains, and uses information, including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”), from you and other Site visitors, as well as users of the Services.
Information We Collect:
When you interact with us through the Site or the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site:
We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information such as when you register for access to the Services (for example, your name and mailing address), use certain Services, contact us with inquiries or respond to one of our surveys. Wherever Creative Halo collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Creative Halo.
Non-Identifiable or Aggregated Data:
When you interact with CH through the Site or Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. CH may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by CH affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, CH often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. CH may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. CH may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

In operating this Site, we may also use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.
Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
CH uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Also, if you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to the Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such services and to monitor your use of such services. For example, if you are a designer, we will use certain of your Personal Data to create a public profile within the Services; this profile is searchable and may be viewed by users seeking designers. CH and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Related Companies”) may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users and to improve the Services. CH and its Related Companies may use this information to communicate with you regarding the Services or to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future marketing communications. Note however that as user of the Service you cannot opt-out of some administrative communications that are reasonably necessary to the Service, such as billing or service notifications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.

If CH intends on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:
CH is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties:
CH, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions.

When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Legal Requirements:
CH may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of CH, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.
Security:
CH takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Site from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

Changes to CH’s Privacy Policy:
The Site and our business may change from time to time. As a result, at times it may be necessary for CH to make changes to this Privacy Policy.
