New Online Portfolio Directory and Jobs Board For Creative Professionals has launched its comprehensive online portfolio/jobs board service for creative professionals. WhosCreative gives graphic designers, motion designers, animators, photographers, illustrators, digital artists, art directors, creative directors, web and gaming artists/programmers, fashion and film industry artists the chance to present their portfolios, be social and find freelance and fulltime jobs.

WhosCreative is the brainchild of Jon Lewis and Dwain Schenck, experienced recruiters and founders of ICA Creative - a placement firm in the graphics, post production and broadcasting industry. WhosCreative was developed as the ultimate place for artists to display their talent and as a tool for employers to find and manage talent.

WhosCreative allows users to point their own domain names to their portfolios and when the portfolio is accessed through its own domain name, it becomes an independent site without WhosCreative branding. Additionally, WhosCreative offers a client access-extranet-component for those who need to present their work in-progress and to share files with their clients in a password-protected area.

Creatives who sign on to the site enjoy a myriad of services - including the opportunity to post a detailed profile page, send and receive messages with other members, bookmark favorite profiles/portfolios, apply to listed jobs, develop a customizable portfolio, set up their own web address on the site, post unlimited images in the portfolio and upload video and audio files.

The basic service is free to join and allows users the ability to set up a comprehensive profile and standard portfolio.
