Behance member Ziarekenya Smith’s typographical portrait of Michael Jordan take words, phrases, and stats about the legend and crafts them into Jordan’s likeness.
The image has been circulating around for a few months, but picked up speed in the heat of basketball season with a mention on a Yahoo! Sports NBA blog last week.

I got connected to the Behance network over two years ago. Originally I was shopping for a professional place to show some of my work to potential clients since I didn’t have a website just yet. I fell in love with it immediately. The interface was clean, beautiful and easily accessible and great to navigate through. With the recent changes to the site I am even happier with it, but the real value in being a part of Behance is in the talent perusing the halls of the site.
I recently landed a gig to design a blog along with its branding and identity when the client did some Googling and found a website project in my portfolio. A week later I landed another gig when a client found a snowboard project in my portfolio. On top of that I was contacted by a fellow Behancer and asked to blog for his UK design and illustration website, helping other artists in their creative journeys. I’m pretty pleased as you can imagine, and can only hope more work and opportunities come my way through my being a part of the Behance community. Read more →
I started getting involved on the Behance network back in October of 2009. Being a 17 year old who had a passion for art and design, it looked like a great place to grow and gain some exposure, but to be honest, what I really wanted was a free online portfolio. A few days into my Behance experience, I discovered that Behance is loaded with endless amounts of inspirational people, art, and community. It’s extremely professional in comparison to other portfolio sites. Behance has become one of my main sources for inspiration. I log in every morning, look at new work, and I’m instantly on a creative high for the rest of the day. It’s also a great platform for networking. I can’t tell you how many relationships I have built and opportunities have come out of my time on Behance.

I joined Behance right before I decided to go back to school a couple of years ago, trailblazing from business to creative, and basically every job I’ve gotten since has been thanks to my profile on Behance. It’s like an innovative adamantium-infused catnip for unbelievably creative employers. Just in the last year, I have been contacted by Oakley, RPA, Digitaria agency, and many others. For a freelancer going back to school, I couldn’t be more grateful.

Charles Williams, a UK based designer specializing in Typography shared his Behance Success story with us this week:
I posted some typography on Behance in October 2008 – just a selection of various typographic bits I’d worked on in the past 2 years in a project called “Typos.”
