“Take creative control,” says the About page on Behance.net. There is a disconnect between creative individuals and the employers that seek their talent. Part of the Adobe family, Behance is an innovative site utilized by creative professionals that aims to not only help construct their portfolios, but also to showcase their work for employers. When the site formed in 2006, their goal was to create a platform that doesn’t mask talent or hinder opportunity but that connects companies and creative minds globally. The site is also connected to other online gallery websites so that portfolios reach the widest audience possible. If you’re a budding designer or looking to hire one, make sure to check out Behance. Don’t let bureaucracy keep you from your creative potential.
Also, if you’re a graduating this year, there’s a six-month paid internship position available with the Behance team in New York. Check out the details here.
