Behance Named as Top Portfolio-Building Tool on Mashable

A recent Mashable post named Behance.net as one of the top 5 user-friendly tools for building your online portfolio. Here’s what they had to say:

Summary: Behance is a platform for creative professionals to gain exposure and manage their careers. Users can create multimedia portfolios that showcase their work to millions of visitors.

Best Feature: Behance turns your work into an online gallery; It claims to get 15 times the traffic of all other leading portfolio sites combined (including Carbonmade, the next site on our list). Recruiters can find and track talent and post jobs for the creative professionals on the site.

What Needs Work: In order to have your own personal portfolio website, rather than just a profile on Behance, you need to join ProSite. This costs $11 a month, but it allows you to create a full website without coding, and it syncs with your Behance portfolio.

Ideal User: Any creative professional wishing to showcase multimedia projects — images, text, audio or video. The layout of the site is better for viewing visual projects, so anyone from graphic designers to photographers to industrial designers can benefit.

Cost: Free for a Behance profile, $11 a month for the ProSite.

Weighing Your Options: Designer Portfolio Sites


Designer Ben Whitesell researched and evaluated the best online portfolio tools for creatives in a recent blog post, and we’re thrilled that ProSite came out on top. ProSite is Behance’s completely customizable personal portfolio builder. Here’s some of what Ben had to say:

“I have had a great experience dealing with [Behance] through my free profile and did quite a bit of research into other hosted portfolio sites like Cargo Collective and the like. But, because the people behind Behance have been readily accessible via twitter, their blog, and forums, I felt comfortable going with them. The big selling point being how easy it was to set up a site, attach my own personal domain, and even drop in Google Analytics for tracking.

[...]

I really like the level of customization that Prosite offers for webpages. Everything is easy adjusted from an administration panel and you can upload custom images for your header or for the gallery buttons. Columns for page layout can be adjusted to your preference and if you get a little creative then you can also get pretty custom with the sites navigation. Behance also regularly provides updates like adding the ability to add social media links, a custom favicon, custom type integration, and expandable images.”
