A subset of the Behance Team made the trek to Austin, Texas this year to attend the SXSW Interactive Festival. Our beloved TheServed.com project was up for an interactive award, and Scott Belsky presented some of Behance’s research at a morning keynote (which received some coverage on some blogs like NewCityMedia, BionicTeaching, and DuckSXSW).
Other highlights included legos, the Behance gathering, and an ever growing fascination with Twitter. All in all, a good trip.

As we launched the first version of Action Method for the iPhone, we were pleased to track initial responses via Twitter.
The only lingering frustration is the group of people posting reviews in the App Store that claim “there is no way to delete an Action Step.” So we would like to explain: All you need to do is open the Action Step and then touch the “Trash” icon. And, of course, if you are just completing the Action Step, touch the checkbox. Sorry for the confusion between “Trash” and “Delete” – it will be addressed in future versions.
Behance’s Action Method received some center stage attention at this year’s TED (Technology Entertainment Design) conference in Long Beach, California. All TED participants received a subscription to Action Method Online. And, those who attended the TED Prize lunches received a limited edition TED Prize Action Book.
Every year, TED gathers luminaries such as Bill Gates, the Google founders, and other leaders of organizations, companies, and non-profits that are innovating across industries. Collectively, the audience has the opportunity to add value to three “wishes” that will improve the world – announced at the conference every year.

We were pleased to come across a thoughtful review of ActionMethod Online on CreativeFluff. We also stumbled upon a nice write up by Matt Moore after the writers of BehanceMagazine covered some of Matt’s latest work. It is nice to see some of the early adopters of the Behance Network getting well-deserved recognition, and it is rewarding for us to read their reviews.
It is interesting to “search” on Twitter for a particular product name or brand. Here’s a quick example of this morning’s search on Twitter for “Action Method” (below). In the new age, teams should use twitter searches to “get the pulse” of what people are saying about their products – and to learn from these searches…
Behance was pleased to partner with this year’s National Design Awards at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. The leaders of Behance gathered with fellow advisors and friends to celebrate some of this year’s greatest achievements in the world of design. Behance also produced a special limited edition Action Book for the Nation Design Awards – distributed to all winners and over 500 attendees along with a special limited edition bag from Target.

We’re glad to see that some fascinating blogs are already seeing the value of the Served Sites. Our team keeps getting distracted by them…
Some early coverage came from friends at Computerlove and some great blogs like TheSmallThingsStudio, The Cap’M, Evasion, FriskyGeek, JustMeGaga, and CSS-Tricks. Thanks for the early spotting…
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.
