Customize all the things & why Carbonmade does not have themes.

Let's get straight to the point: We think themes or templates lock you in. You're a creative, you try so hard to make your work unique so why shouldn't your website be unique?

This is why we designed Carbonmade the way it is. We still give you a hand to make it easy for you, but it's all about mixing, matching and then customizing it the way YOU like it. Even if you don't care about making websites, I'm sure you care about your work being presented in the best light possible.

When signing up for Carbonmade, we still let you pick a starting point (kind of like a template), but then you can pretty much change the look of your entire site within just a few clicks.

To show you just how endless the possibilities are, we made a little video for you here:

✨ New sub-domains!

We know how hard it is when your name or domain is already taken. That's why we just added two more sub-domains you can choose from for your online portfolio.

Now you can choose from the following:

yourname.carbonmade.com
yourname.portfolio.site
yourname.gfx.work

Pretty cool right? Of course, if you want to go even more professional you can also connect your own .com or other domain. If you have more questions you can always send us a quick tweet @carbonmade or browse through our help forum.

Simply put: Just click on the little ⚙️ icon in the bottom left corner and navigate to your account settings, then click on "Domain" and we take you from there.

Happy launching!

The new Carbonmade 4 is here, your new online portfolio.

We've been quiet the last year or two, and now you know why. The new Carbonmade 4 is finally here and we're very excited to show you what we've worked on for you.

Carbonmade has been around since 2005 now, can you imagine? That's a crazy long time, but we haven't changed a bit when it comes to what we care most about: Helping creatives show off their work. And with the new Carbonmade 4, we hope that this is now even easier and more fun than before.

We've completely re-designed and re-developed everything from scratch. There are no more templates that lock you into one particular design. Everything about the new Carbon is about mixing and matching. You start off by picking a starting point (a layout we specifically designed for you) and then you just start customizing, changing colors, fonts, re-arranging or adding new blocks to your project pages.

Honestly, this blogpost would become way too long explaining what we did, but the best way is just to see yourself.

Sign up here and see for yourself. It only takes 30seconds and you're in.
