This year, we have released several new features and updates for the design and creative community to help freelancers and agencies showcase their talents, and updated the search experience so clients can easily find the perfect match for their job. Since we know it can be easy to miss a new feature announcement, we wanted to make sure our design and creative community were aware of all of these new options to search, showcase and promote skills. 


Here are some of the features we’ve introduced this year to help freelancers and agencies become more successful: 


  • Portfolios in search results. Pick a portfolio image or video to highlight your creativity when you show up in clients’ search results.

  • Specialized profiles. Specialized questions have been introduced to profiles and job posts that will help lead to more relevant and precise matches when more advanced search filters fully roll out. 


  • Agency profiles. Promote your agency’s portfolio of work, featured clients, and the services you offer.                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  • Advanced search filters for clients (coming soon). Clients will soon be able to search for you based on the specialization, deliverable type, and skills in your specialized profile.


Over the past year, we’ve been building and testing features to help clients easily evaluate design and creative talent and find the perfect match. Here are some of the improvements clients will notice:


  • Portfolio visuals in search results. Get a better sense of a freelancer’s style and quality of work when you search, without needing to click into their profiles.


  • Advanced search filters (coming soon). Filter talent by the skills they have, the type of work they specialize in, and the kinds of deliverables they can create.


  • Portfolio templates. More easily evaluate freelancer portfolios with big, beautiful visuals and layouts tailored to the project.


  • Relevant experience, upfront. Make quicker hiring decisions by seeing the most relevant reasons a freelancer would be a good match – directly in search results. 


We're just getting started and we would love to hear your feedback on how we can further improve your experience.
