CNN Lists Behance Network as Place To Get Hired

CNN writer Dave Stephens published an article today backing the “UnCollege” social movement that advocates self-directed higher education. In describing how the Internet is replacing some of the benefits of the networking that college allows, he said:

Behance 1 of “5 Companies I’d Invest In At a Wild Valuation”

It was a nice surprise to find ourselves on this list put together by Rob Go (a co-founder of NextView ventures, a VC firm focused on internet enabled innovation) where he listed his picks for companies he’d most want to invest in, “even at a crazy valuation.” Behance keeps company here with Yelp, Tripadvisor, DropBox, and Pinterest.

Behance is a New York based company that is emerging as the dominant platform and community for creative professionals.  It’s not really in the public spotlight, but everyone I know in the design/creative industry is well aware of the company and a participant in the network.  I also love Scott Belsky’s vision for how the creative process should evolve (and by extension, how creative professionals can capture more of the value they create in the industries that rely on them).

Tumblr Founder’s Favorite Tech Tools: Action Method!

David Karp, the 24 year old founder of uber-popular blogging platform Tumblr, did a series of articles for Inc. recently where he dug into his workstyle and favorite tools. Amongst his favorites was Action Books, from our very own Behance Outfitter. He says:

“As I go through my e-mail, I make a list of things that I need to do that day in my notebook. I have a bad memory, so I’ve become a thorough notetaker. I use Action Method notebooks from Behance. They are really beautiful. The pages have rows or dots instead of lines. I ordered a bunch for our team.”

Also on his list? Pilot Pens, Leica M9 Camera, TeuxDuex, HypeMachine, and Apple TV.

Photoprenuer Magazine published a lengthy feature on The Behance Network, and how photographers in particular can use the platform to help advance their career.

Today’s photographers no longer need to learn darkroom skills or bone up on the different kinds of chemicals they’ll be pouring into trays…but they do need to understand the difference between RAW and jpg image formats. Behance’s platform provides a useful service. Adding your projects to a platform viewed by the creative industry can only help to win jobs and land new commissions.”
