Hi Creatives! mp4 help!

I'm trying to put an animation that is within a mockup on my portfolio site. Animation was created in Adobe XD then placed within a phone mockup in photoshop by using video timeline. Exported as "Render Video" and works perfectly fine when playing. My portfolio is on Squarespace, which doesn't support direct upload of mp4, I attempted to embed the javascript code, which doesn't look great. When adding an mp4 to a site what is the best way that you all have found?

Had similar issue with web builders and eventually just converted videos to very high res gifs. Depends on your designs though


Opening a video in photoshop and then saving as a gif sometimes works. You can force certain colors with this and I have found the file size is often smaller if you are having issues with that. I had a problem with getting a true black and a true white using media encoder.

The best way with the highest file resolution is using a Vimeo embed, meaning JavaScript will handle the compression and on-page loading. If you’re unhappy with the styling, you can add some CSS styling to make it appear as you would like.

If it’s the aspect ratio that’s bugging you, maybe upload a 9:16 to Vimeo for mobile viewership and call the mobile aspect ratio content with a media query in your CSS.


***appearance ratio

Can also try Wistia if you don’t like the vimeo styling. They let you remove the controls and have autoplay features. Their embed works in Squarespace even though not explicitly stated


Good to know! Thanks so much

Best Deloitte swag ?


My son flew down the stairs today- he’s almost two and he lost his balance at the top and flew, rolled, and flipped all the way down. It was a nightmare and I thought he was going to snap his neck and die. I missed two meeting because the second it happened, I stayed with him to assess any injuries. My team asked where I was and when I finally knew he was ok, I let them know what happened. There was no compassion- just “ok you need let me know if you’ll miss a meeting.” Wtf! So demoralizing.

Stupid question- how long would this job take ?

Hi guys I recently set up my own thing. And had a small & slightly strange request from a client.

They want a playbook/ manual designing up. They have the copy (2000words) and existing design guidelines. So basically its just putting these elements together.

I was thinking two check ins/ rounds of amends.

As a designer how long do you reckon is fair to scope this for? What would you say in terms of timelines.?

I’m job hunting and having fairly decent success so far. Made it to the final round for two jobs but lost both. Thinking it can’t hurt to spruce up my resume and cover letter and optimize my LinkedIn profile. Can anyone recommend someone who does this? Not finding great options via Google and looking specifically for ones who are good with creatives.
