We’re thrilled to be listed on Lateral Action as one of the top 10 social networks for creatives. The website interviewed Parris Whittingham, a member of the Behance Network:
“For me, the value of Behance is that it holds users to a set of unspoken professional standards. I will not post anything on the network unless I am truly confident in the work. I know this to be true for several other artists who use Behance as well. The Behance platform was clearly designed to focus on the artwork. This “less is more approach” makes Behance feel more like a Boutique than a catalog or meat market. For a person that just likes to be inspired by great design, amazing talent and professional presentation, Behance compliments my needs.”
We couldn’t have summed it up better! To see the complete list, please visit Lateral Action.
Over 200 of our closest friends, family, and fans came out to Santos Party House last night to “get in on the action.” We had great music from Matthew Johnson, DLO The Big Asian, and Mike Servito. And great drinks provided by Tito’s Vodka and Butternuts Beer & Ale.
If you didn’t get a chance to make it out, take a look at the pictures from Rachel Feierman below.
If it looks like a lot of fun, it’s because it was a lot of fun!

Behance was featured at the annual UCLA-Berkeley “Play” Conference at the Haas School of Business. I (Scott) had the opportunity to make the case for empowering creative professionals with the new age of technology, and I had the opportunity to discuss (and in some cases debate) the importance of boosting productivity in the creative world – and protecting the time and effort that goes into great pieces of creative work.

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 →
The Behance team is very grateful for the coverage and suggestions we have received from blogs around the world since the launch of AMO. A few blogger reviews we’ve come across (aside from the official ones at TechCrunch and Mashable): 1222North’s review of Action Method – correctly pointing out that this IS more “action management” than “project management” (quite a philosophical difference we are proud of! And then their is Plus63 – a showcase of Filipino Creativity. We’ll keep a look-out for other interesting interpretations of Action Method Online and how it can help people and teams make ideas happen.
Our team was thrilled to further launch Action Method Online (AMO) today. We’ve been working for years on developing the methodology, the products, and the concepts, design, and technology behind this service. It feels good to finally share AMO with others (beyond the beta user program).
The application received reviews today in TechCrunch, Mashable, LifeDev, and (via TechCrunch) in the Washington Post. Read more →
