Our friends at New Work City are doing an amazing thing. They are gathering a community of dedicated creative minds to work together in a co-working environment that promotes accountability, professionalism, and good economics. We previously profiled the thinking behind this new workspace concept in the Behance Magazine. We were surprised to see the new website splash page for New Work City – it utilizes a Behance Action Book to show the completed action steps required to make New Work City happen. Read more →

You may have noticed our sites were down for around 30 minutes from 6:15 to 6:45PM EST time. There was a slight misconfiguration while we changed settings to make our sites more stable and secure. So ironically, the changes to make the sites stay up, made the sites go down. We have taken the necessary steps to ensure this does not happen again. We can also assure you that nothing was lost and that the sites are now, in fact, more stable and secure than ever before.
The Behance Party in San Francisco, in partnership with PSFK (and a bar tab sponsored by our friends at Gawker), was a great time for many. The Otis Bar was over capacity, and many Behance Network members came to mix it up. Check out PSFK’s coverage and some pictures.
