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!
Make sure you check our next event…

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).
Our very own, Scott Belsky, gave a talk on working with a bias towards action and discussed ways to foster accountability, collaboration, and productive idea generation.
Behance founder Scott Belsky delivered a keynote presentation at this year’s re:think conference – for leaders in the event management industry. The presentation was based on the Behance team’s research on “making ideas happen” and how some of the most productive creative people and teams in the world function. Keynotes and consulting engagements are all a part of Behance’s Advisory Services.
The Action Method Online (AMO) beta launch period has begun. The team is psyched and we invite you to read a bit about this new productivity application in the online magazine.
In the meantime, we have been busy gathering feedback, filming demos (some pictures below, taken by JB), and gradually inviting more and more people and teams to sign onto the application. We invite you to sign-up for the beta list at ActionMethod.com.

Behance founder Scott Belsky presented “Tips for Making Ideas Happen” at this year’s HOW Design Conference in Boston, MA. Over 4000 people attended the conference this year. The session included a selection of tips from Behance’s 200+ interviews of creative teams (many of which are profiled on BehanceMag.com) as well as the methodologies developed by the Behance team. We have come across an early blog review of the session as well as a few blogger recaps here and here.
