Fabrik Websites for Creatives

Feature Index

Fabrik is a unique creative platform designed to showcase your work in the most impressive way. Behind every portfolio is the powerful Fabrik Engine. Let us show you what it can do.

Technology

  • Themes

    Our themes are designed by some of the most incredible talent in the industry, with years of experience in finding the perfect way to present their work (and yours!) to the world. We use state of the art web technologies and techniques to make sure all of our themes will make your work shine; from mobile and tablet devices, laptops and desktops and anything else we can lay our hands on to test them with.

  • Layouts

    Within each theme choose from a variety of layouts to fine-tune how your content is presented. From grids of small, medium or large thumbnails to stacks, magazine layouts, gallery slideshows and fullscreen options - find the perfect fit yourself. And the best news of all; you can change layouts from page to page too, so if one project looks better in one layout then go with it.

  • Custom Domains

    Every Fabrik site has an onfabrik.com address that you can use but you’re free to link your own domain name to your Fabrik site. We've made it easy for you to set up custom domains from the Fabrik dashboard and provide the support you need if things aren’t so clear at the other end.

  • Portfolios

    With Fabrik your projects can be arranged into multiple portfolios. Create and manage portfolios in any way you see fit; by subject, by discipline, by date - whatever makes the most sense to you. Portfolios can even contain sub-folios, giving you complete control over where your projects appear on your site.

  • Fully Hosted

    The days of dealing with your own hosting are well and truly over. Fabrik’s hosting environment is properly next-level. Let us spend our time thinking about things like load-balancing, geo-locational efficiency, site-caching and scaling infrastructure. We have people here that enjoy that sort of thing, you just get on with making great work.

  • Styles & Settings

    Choose the fonts and colours that best fit your style of work. Adjust your theme settings to control how your content and images are displayed; for example choose how many projects you want to display on a portfolio page, or whether or not to show blog articles on your homepage. Each and every Fabrik site becomes unique in just a few moments.

  • Responsive Design

    Fabrik is designed to look great on any device. From mobile to desktop or even TV and billboards, our themes allow your work to shine whilst giving your audience the very best possible experience, however they view your website.

  • Fullscreen Imagery

    Our themes take advantage of great design and technology to make sure your beautiful work isn’t crushed into a little block on a page of little blocks. From theatre mode for video and lightboxes that rotate through your project images to fullscreen covers, we’re adamant that your work should never be compromised in its presentation.

  • Tagging

    Take advantage of tagging to give your projects and blog articles context. Tags enable your audience to focus and filter your content to get to what they want to see faster.

Media

  • Automatic Image Handling

    No more messing around in Photoshop, just upload your work! Fabrik will automatically generate perfectly sized and optimised versions of your images to make sure they look great on your site regardless of what device or screen size your audience are using - from mobile through to HiDPI and Retina screens.

  • Cropping

    Fabrik provides a number of cropping options to give you control over how your imagery is presented on your site. We believe in letting you decide how our themes work with your images for the best result. Of course, cropping is optional for those of you who prefer to present every glorious detail of your work.

  • Cover Images

    If a picture can speak a thousand words then your cover image is pretty important. Our themes and layouts have options to display large, high-focus cover images for your projects and blog posts. If you’re looking for an ultra-slick portfolio we can cover your video files with a clickable high-resolution cover image too.

  • Add video from YouTube

    Adding video from YouTube couldn’t be easier. Simply paste in the YouTube URL of your video and you’re good to go. Even a cat can do it. Seriously, we did a test.

  • Add video from Vimeo

    Vimeo is a great service and has a vibrant creative community. Say goodbye to complicated embed codes. All you need to add your Vimeo content is the video URL.

  • CDN Media Storage

    Your media is served by an ultra-fast content delivery network from data centres distributed around the world. This means that your Fabrik site loads really, really fast - regardless of whether it is viewed out and about on a mobile or in an agency boardroom.

  • Image Naming

    Add more to your images with titles and captions. Fabrik themes use image metadata in lightbox modes and certain layouts. This also means better SEO for your site and attribution for you.

Management

  • Schedule Blog Posts

    Set future publish dates to control when your blog posts appear on your site - perfect for when you’re halfway up a mountain shooting a job or if you’re spacing your blog activity out for maximum readership.

  • Pages

    Fabrik makes it easy to add custom pages to your site. Whether you want to include a quick personal bio or you want to create an illustrated case study, our pages follow the styling of your chosen theme to make sure it all comes together seamlessly.

  • Customise your Menu

    Updating your site menu is really easy with our drag-and-drop menu builder. Add links to external URL’s if you have a shop or an Instagram feed, or provide direct links to the work you want to feature.

  • Support

    Our support team are on-hand to help you get your Fabrik site set up and live. If you need help adding your content or more technical aspects such as linking your domain then look no further.

  • Custom CSS

    If you’re feeling adventurous and want to tweak one of our themes outside of the normal customisation options you can add your own custom CSS.

  • Custom HTML

    Add your own HTML if you need to inject third-party webmaster verification codes or scripts into your site.

Discovery

  • Background

    Fabrik is designed and run by passionate creatives and developers. We think like you and we know exactly what you need from a website. Furthermore we listen to what you want. Fabrik is built from all the good ideas we have as well as those from our growing community. If you’d like to see something added to make your site better and your work shine brighter, get in touch.

  • Indexed Pages

    The team behind Fabrik all have senior-level industry experience running or working in leading agencies in the digital sector. Our extensive knowledge in writing clean, well-performing and solid code means Fabrik sites are easily indexed by search engines and conform to industry standards for good organic SEO.

  • Redirects

    If you’re moving over to Fabrik from an old website you can easily set up 301 redirects so that specific pages indexed from your old site have a home in your new Fabrik site. This means you won’t lose your existing search traffic and search engines will have an easier time finding the new destination of your most popular pages.

  • Open Graph

    Fabrik generates Open Graph metadata from your portfolio and blog content so that when your content is shared on social networks like Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Twitter your work is presented right, and more importantly, continues to be attributed to you.

  • Semantic Code

    All our themes are built to industry standards for code and accessibility to ensure that your website can be viewed by everyone, regardless of which browser or device they’re using. Semantic markup also means search engines can understand it too.

  • Titles and URL's

    Fabrik creates clean, canonical URL’s for your pages so that your content is optimised as much as possible for discoverability and search engines.

  • Google Analytics

    Analyze your website's traffic and learn about your audience with Google Analytics. Setting up your Fabrik site couldn't be easier; no need to add any code or mess about under the hood.
