Want to visit NYC this summer and kick your photography portfolio up a notch?
We were psyched to see that longtime Behance member Julian Hibbard will be leading a month-long Digital Photography Portfolio Intensive this July at NYU’s prestigious Center for Advanced Digital Applications. The best part? Any Behance member who wants to register for the course gets 10% off!
The course is ideal for photographers or photography students who are looking to take on a personal project or who wish to develop a cohesive body of work. What can you expect? You’ll approach the development of a portfolio “as a multistage process involving a combination of research, experimentation, off-campus visits, weekly assignments and interaction between class participants, working photographers and industry insiders.”
Spend your summer crafting an amazing portfolio – you’ll get one-on-one feedback to help cultivate your personal vision. Sneak peek on some guest speakers: creative directors, a magazine photo director, the president of a commercial stock library, a curator, a creative strategist and the director of AtEdge. The course will finish up in a group exhibition at NYU SPS.
Interested in signing up at a 10% discount? Contact Julian here.

What can we learn from Behance’s community of millions? Our debut Digital Index digs into the data!
Today, Adobe unveiled its first in a new series of research on the creative economy that analyzes the current pulse of creativity and highlights industry trends from around the globe.
Drawing data points and findings from the public projects of nearly 5 million creatives on Behance, this new Adobe Digital Index research focuses on “New Creatives”— placing a lens on some of the most formative years in a creative’s career. With a new generation paving innovative career paths, the “New Creatives Mashup” research provides insights into what younger creatives across various age groups, and around the world, are thinking, working on and aspiring to. Curious to see what we found, and how their design interests and passions will impact the next generation of the creative economy? See below for the first in our ongoing creative data deep dive from Adobe Digital Index.
Stretching the Canvas: Mobilizing Creativity
New creatives, new rules. With the continuous introduction of new technology and cutting-edge platforms that allow creatives to stretch their ‘canvas’ and innovate on mobile devices, the second-screen experience has become more tightly integrated than ever before into the new creatives’ workflow. The work of the incoming cohort of creatives on Behance – 18-22 year olds – shows how mobile and on-the-go- devices are enabling these creatives to push the envelope wherever their inspiration strikes and create on their own terms.
The nearly 1 million 18-22-year-olds who share their work on Behance are surging ahead on mobile. With a 36 percent increase in mobile logins in the last year, these new creatives are more than twice as likely to be engaged on mobile design work than the total population. New project work on mobile for this age group ranges from branding to typography to comics and more. We expect the engagement and creation of design work from mobile platforms to continue to rise – unleashing innovation and pushing boundaries for all creatives.

“Set it and forget it” is not a phrase that should come to mind when setting up your creative portfolio, especially as a student (though for roasting chickens, it’s fine) As we’ve discussed in the past, the best portfolios are fresh ones. And we’re not just talking about the work. For students and professionals alike, few quick updates, mindful edits, and a tweak to your creative process can whip your portfolio back into shape in time for your next semester or your next interview.

Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects on Behance this month:
We dig this kid-friendly riff off of Youtube’s classic design – because kids should be able to enjoy everyone’s favorite procrastination tool too, right? Hello Monday says: “We were inspired by our own childhood best friends, invisible pals, and favorite toys. It’s fun, quirky and embodies the YouTube Kids brand.”
James Oconnell doesn’t have much in the way of description for this popular series (the third installment found above), but gives us this much: “colors and lines applied across a wide area of themes including the Oscars, films, TV, fat men on the beach and coca cola.” We love this truly one-of-a-kind style. Keep the series’ coming!
