  • I would recommend it for a very basic (definitely not very sophisticated) and “fast” websites.

    It is extremely easy to set up a website – which was a great advantage for me. But the main disadvantage is that there are not too many skins, and obviously everyone is seeing that I am using ready-made website, instead of my own design (which I as a graphic designer….). On the other hand self-promotion is definitely the worst part of my job, so I am really happy that someone gave me an extremely easy and fast to use toolJ

    So yes I would recommend it!

  • I do use Dunked for my online portfolio. I would definitely recommend this platform - I have found that it is extremely user friendly, and it gives you enough freedom to personalize the site without having to code at all. There aren't so many templates to choose from but the number has certainly increased a lot over the past year or two, personally I like this because it is not so overwhelming.

    For me I just needed a simple website to showcase a few projects, nothing too fancy and Dunked has been perfect for me!

  • I have a dunked website since 4 years. I've tried a couple platforms like squarespace, wordpress and cargo. Dunked, I've found the most user-friendly to use. It's quick and easy to add a new project to my portfolio without arranging the whole site. It's easy to customize. You can change your template and it fills automatically everything in place. You don't need to start from zero.

    Some remarks: - the lack of templates, there are not enough templates to choose from. - templates are not really updated since 4 years. - some templates are not very well built to be responsive (not a good design or layout when seen on a mobile phone) - the lack of video backgrounds for me as a video editor that's why I tried the other platforms but they have other issues. Dunked seems the only platforms that can embed easily videos in a project and add a description, some pictures to it, other sites it's just pictures or videos but not both.

  • I'm using Dunked! And I'm really happy, as it is a platform designed by designers for designers, and that's really important.

    However it is true that, as the web world goes very quickly, Dunked should create new templates faster to compete with other services such as Squarespace.

    But Dunked is EXTREMELY easy to use, nice interface and works great. So yes, I will truly recommend it.

  • I liked Dunked for a few reason. It features an easy to use back end for uploading projects. They have a number of very stylish, design-driven templates. They might not be the most over the top looking design templates, but I generally was looking for something simpler, so my own design work would be the story.

    I tend to be juggling a lot of projects at once and never seem to have time to plan out my own portfolio, so it was nice to have a simple, easy to understand interface where I could quickly add my work. I know coding and I do UI design in my field, so I could build my own site if need-be but this worked out for me.

  • initially it was because I needed something quick and easy that I wouldn't spend hours faffing around with. But now (after maybe 3-4 years) I'm looking to build something as I find Dunked slow at loading media as it can use rather large images unnecessarily and is a bit of a pain uploading images without customising s theme.

    Can't complain for the price but it is limiting in how it displays images for how I use a portfolio site.

  • I've had a good experience so far. The site is very easy to use compared to a few other ones and has interesting design and navigation that suits artists/designers who wants to show case their portfolio.

    I noticed recently that the drop down menu on my website is not showing entirely on smartphones so I sent Dunked an email today asking them to fix the problem. Let's see how quickly they will address the matter.

  • I do use it. It’s super easy.

    At the beginning they were missing some essential editing functionality but it’s a bit better now.

    It’s totally novice proof. I’m a web editor on Wordpress so it’s probably too simplistic for me but if you’re new to web building or CMS then it’s ideal.

  • I would recommend it. It's pretty easy to use and they have a lot of great templates to build a website off of. I haven't had any problems other than trying to make a custom URL haha.

    Price is relatively cheap too. I was an early adopter, so I got grandfathered in to a really low yearly price so I probably won't be moving off of there any time soon. I'm not too sure what the regular prices are now, but I don't imagine they're too expensive compared to other portfolio sites.

    All-in-all, I am satisfied with Dunked! I'm pretty happy that I ran into their services when I did.

  • I'm using Dunked. Did a lot of research on portfolio sites, did trials on quite a few of them, Format, Cargo, Wix, Adobe Portfolio. And, have friends who use all of the big ones and picked their brains.

    I liked Dunked the best, for what I'm using it for. The interface is intuitive and quickly picked up how the site structure was organized, styled, etc.

    The best function is I can change the theme with the touch of a button and all of my work will change over ready to roll, then I can customize the CSS to suit. But, I can also go back to any previous theme with touch of a button and all of my custom CSS is saved for that particular theme. I wish they would introduce a few new themes, but otherwise I'm satisfied, and have turned some designer friends onto it

  • As an alternative - if you cannot afford to pay for a "professional" website,- it is quite nice. Of course you are limited by its pre-determined-portfolio-features... But it is, I think, very good value for the price and you do not need to be an expert to build something presentable with it.

    Besides, if you have a problem, they always respond quickly, giving support and clear answers, and they are always ready to help, something that I appreciate very very much nowadays.

    I recommend it.

  • Dunked is very easy to use – you can switch items off and on as needed, super easy to change templates and load projects.

    The staff are very responsive if you have any questions and there are quite a few templates to choose from.

    I do however find the templates can be a bit rigid so you can’t customize as much as you might want.

  • I have been using Dunked for more then 4 years now, and it has been quite easy to use. I think it’s a great platform for visual artists, designers and photographers, with beautiful templates (not too many of them), iPad and Phone friendly too.

    I am around 50…, and not so good at technology and it’s sooo easy to use and update :) adjust colors, etc. I can change it every week if I want!!! It’s possible to have the .html change when needed too.

    Not too expensive either (95$/ year)

    The only thing is that you can not download videos on their platform, but you can create links to Vimeo, etc. I am really satisfied with it.

    But… I do not know where they are based (Ireland?) and when I needed to contact them it has been … difficult sometimes:)

  • I definitely would recommend it. It’s fantastic. It’s easy to use and setup quickly, and reasonably priced. All of the templates are pretty clean and easy to customize. Their interface is also very user friendly. Especially for graphic designers who may not be as code minded as others.

    It’s also great even if you know your way around web code but need to set up a portfolio website quickly, as I did.

    The only con I could mention is that it would be great if they had more templates to choose from, as of now they don’t have a large library but the ones they do have are simple and effective.

  • I would indeed recommend Dunked, purely for its ease of use and simple setup.

    However, the one thing I do not like about the service is the inability to pause your membership. I only really require an online portfolio when I'm actively seeking new work, so when I'm not seeking work (like right now) it would be nice to be able to pause the membership and resume it at a later date.

    Unfortunately, stopping your membership with Dunked means that your portfolio is fully deleted after 30 days, meaning you'll have to start all over again when you next search for work... not ideal, and this would probably stop me going back to them again.

  • When building the current site i just wanted to get something out there quick but at the same time have some that's appealing to the viewer and easy to navigate.

    Dunked is pretty good in that it gives you modern templates that you can then customise further either with their toolkit or through css, it's also easy to manage project folders and images.

    Would recommend.

  • I'm using Dunked from it's first days I think, when there were only 3 or 4 templates... I really love it. It's very easy to use and maintain, easy to integrate with other platforms like google analytics and such, and most of all - It's clean and simple. Though I'm satisfied with my own, the new templates look really awesome, and it feels like they always looking for ways to improve and enhance the platform.

    Bottom line, as you can tell - I'm satisfied :)

    Flag
  • Dunked is a decent platform but the template I'm using needs more custom code for a better mobile layout.

    It's easy to use and good enough for most layouts but could be way better for responsive design. I may try new templates at another time.

    Flag
  • I went with Dunked because someone I worked with was using it, but I've since let my service with Dunked lapse. The service was good and the site worked okay, but it just wasn't fitting with my personal need.

    I'm a cartoonist/animation character designer and needed something that has a better variety of structure and templates. Something that was easy to customize and reads really cleanly on mobile. I've gone over to Format.com for my website/portfolio needs now.

  • I think this an easy-to-use tools for making your own portfolio very quickly. The think that you can have a personnalised url is very important in my opinion and this is really easy with dunked.

    Then I think dunked is a good tool for who wants to personnalise html & css. In the other hand I think there is better tools like adobe portfolio wich purpose more template and can allows to do more things I think.

  • I looked at about three different sites at the time and seem to remember Dunked having the most templates I liked while allowing for a lot of flexibility. I do graphic design but not much with web and never considered creating a site from scratch.

    I would recommend it. It has a clean and intuitive interface and I never had any issues using it, which also means I've never needed tech support so I can't comment on that. I think the pricing is in line with comparable sites, but I do think there was a slightly cheaper option when I originally compared.

    Flag
  • I can say that I have no complain: it is clean, sleek, easy to use, customizable enough and it never go down.

    Ah, a thing just come to my mind. A little thing that was always quite annoying: the modal that shows up when you click on images to enlarge them.

    Flag
  • id definitely recommend it. Very easy to use, nicely designed templates and great customer service/price.

    However im about to redesign my site after a few years, as im a graphic designer as it needs to look more current/eye advanced, and im not sure if there’s a template from the limited selection that will do the job...

    Flag
  • I think it's pretty good for what I use it for. I do motion graphics design and need a site that makes it easy to show video links (vimeo/youtube etc). Dunked seems pretty good for that, makes it pretty simple to upload and manage.

    Saying that though I haven't properly used any others so don't really have much to compare to haha.

  • Dunked works ok if you aren’t looking for a lot of customization, but honestly it isn’t ideal. It has a lot of little idiosyncrasies I don’t enjoy and trying to bent their rigid format to make something that stands out is a bit difficult.

    I can’t say I recommend it over something more versatile like a custom Wordpress theme. I originally started using it because there was a special from the site dribbble.

  • I do have a dunked portfolio website, although It’s currently inactive as I’ve switched over to the artstation pro site instead.

    I was happy with dunked and their website service while I used it. The big appeal for me was that it was cheap and they had several templates to choose from that did an okay job of displaying my art in a no nonsense kind of way. They give you the tools to do a lot of great customization and I’m sure with the right knowhow you can probably tweak things any further.

    Ultimately I made the switch to artstation simply due to the fact that through it I can get better traffic and it will link back to my artstation account better. It’s nice to be able to manage both from the same place. I still keep the dunked site though because it’s so cheap that it’s worth continuing to have as a back-up or if I need a portfolio tailored to a specific client or studio.

  • I am not happy with this service. I can write pluses and minuses I think this way will be most clear to give my feedback.

    +

    - Site loads fast; - Very good results with responsive design, I like mobile and tablet versions; - Easy and clear CMS.

    -

    - It is not possible to edit contact form (no additional fields); - It was not possible to use the contact form in dunked for a few years; - Only a few options to edit the website, you can just change images and texts; - Service lacks frequent updates; - No integration options.

    Overall Dunked.com is not bad service, it is reputable and easy to use. It is good to make portfolio very fast for people who don't know about coding, what why I used it. But now after 3-4 years, I need more options and ways to make portfolio unique so I will move to webflow.io soon.

  • I used to use dunked, it's still up, but currently use Artstation for portfolio purposes. I currently recommend artists in game and the movie industry to use artstation as their main portfolio site. It has everything one could need as well as it's become a place where companies and recruiters go to look for talent. Myself included hire a lot of people from there, so it's a good way to get seen without actually having to do anything.

    Dunked is still totally fine though, used most of the portfolio template systems and I thought it was the best among them, at least a couple of years ago.

  • recommend it.

    No complaints overall. Clean interface, simple backend interface, good hands on support, fast, reliable. Good for my needs for this site. Which are pretty basic. Also, it’s a bit below the radar so I don’t see a lot of other sites out there using the same template.

    I also use Squarespace for a photography site and I find it works well in comparison. Not quite as thorough, of course.

  • I would recommend Dunked. It is very easy to set up and manage, and it is all I need for the simple portfolio website I wanted to create. I’m an illustrator, but I would say from looking at the templates that it would suit a range of creative pursuits and businesses. I also found it easy (with only slightly more than zero knowledge) to go into the CSS and adjust a few minor things like the height between the sections. If you had more knowledge of CSS or HTML then you can customize as much as you want.

    There are a couple of limitations. There aren’t a huge range of templates, and I found on some of the templates (including the one I am using) that the social media buttons came up way too large and didn’t adjust as they were meant to. I wasn’t too fussed myself so I just left them off, but I’m sure a more skilled person could fix that minor glitch.

  • I am using Dunked for my website! I've been on Dunked for a few years now, I originally used Squarespace but switched when one of my friends used it for her portfolio site as well. I liked the way hers looked so I figured I'd try it out.

    Overall I'm happy with it, I was able to do some simple custom coding on my own to change a couple design elements to my liking, but for the most part it's very straight forward. The interface is pretty organized and it's easy to add/take out/hide/arrange projects as well which is great for me since I tend to update my site pretty often. I'd say a downfall is there it's pretty limited when it comes to templates and I don't think it would be an easy task to migrate anything to another site should I ever choose to move away from Dunked. But I like the simple and clean look so the lack of elaborate templates didn't deter me.

  • I'm quite happy with it, is easy to use and allows a lot of storage and multiple layout options and personalisation.

    On the other hand, i have to say this is the first non-free portfolio site I've used.

  • I'm really happy with Dunked. It's easy to use and has a variety of templates. I was looking for something where I didn't need a developer to make changes and when I did the trial with Dunked I was hooked.

  • I used Dunked more than 3 years ago. The creator of this platform sent me an email promotion blast. At that time I needed to make an urgent portfolio for a job interview. I did not want to complicate myself by building a page from scratch or buying a Wordpress template or another solution. I really like Dunked, it's very easy to manage, upload my works, 'turn off' pages that you do not want to show publicly. Every time you want, you can change the look of your website. Dunked has several templates, I would like them to add more templates. If you have knowledge of html, css, you can customize the page. The website is responsive by default, it's very important feature today!

    Negative, when you change templates -almost always- you should review the images that you have uploaded, .

  • I would recommend it! It’s tailor made for portfolios and incredibly easy to use. I’ve also recently been looking at Semplice, which sits on top of Wordpress, and looks like a great option for a more custom build.

  • I would totally recommend it to others. It’s super easy to handle and it saves a lot of time. The website never gets “old”! Tons of themes to chose from and with a few clicks the complete design can change.

  • Dunked has been very useful to me. Of course it will never replace a bespoke portfolio, but for simplicity and efficiency I’ve chosen Dunked. It’s simple to use and offer the necessary tools. I’d like a little more flexibility to work the design…

  • I'd recommend it. Sure, it's got some limitations (for example, I can only tack images and text on top of each other), but it's been great. If you've got some working knowledge of HTML & CSS, it's even more customizable.

  • I do like Dunked! I appreciated seeing and using templates that other site builders (ie Squarespace, Weebly) don't have. I didn't want my website to look *exactly *like everyone else and I thought the side bar feature when you open up a project was unique looking! Someone was mentioning to me recently that Adobe CC has a portfolio builder as well that way users don't have to pay extra. I'm probably going to look into that within the next couple months.
