In this installment, we’re featuring Mart Biemans, a young digital artist and illustrator from The Netherlands. Since joining in 2008, Mart has been featured in number of the Behance networks and was profiled in Adobe’s New Creatives campaign earlier in 2014. Below is an excerpt of a testimonial from the artist.
“My life has proven that it is almost impossible to predict your future, even though I’ve had dreams and expectations like every other kid growing up, things turned out completely different than expected. . .

It’s never been easier to give and get feedback. Take your work in progress from your desktop straight to Behance with the new WIP app for Macs. The WIP app is a hub for sharing and exploring the freshest work on Behance—work still in progress.
On the Work in Progress app for desktop you can:
- Upload snapshots of your latest work directly from your desktop to get feedback from others and showcase a preview of your newest work on your portfolio
- Give your feedback on Work in Progress from creatives in your network
- Broadcast your latest updates and request feedback in one click sharing via Facebook and Twitter
Work In Progress allows you to get instant feedback from the creative community by uploading a snapshot of your work in progress.
Work in Progress is a great opportunity to show work in its early stages, and get feedback on it that can guide the direction it will take.

What’s on your computer desktop? For most of us, it’s a vacation photo from years ago, a default background that came with the computer, or something you set a few months ago that you haven’t had a chance to change. We design our office spaces to maximize creativity and inspiration, but what about the place where we spend hours of our time, the computer?
That’s why we created the Behance Wallpaper app—an easy way to make your workspace more beautiful and discover new creative work at the same time. For this first time, see creative work from Behance in all its hi-res, full screen glory on your desktop.
Once you install the Wallpaper app, you can choose from one of 60 designs (with an option to sort by creative field) by some of Behance’s top creatives, then choose how often you want to change your background—hourly, daily, weekly, monthly. Whatever your setting, the desktop will automatically change so you have a new design as often as you like. The app will stay fresh, with new designs added each month on top of what’s there now.
Loving a particular wallpaper and want more? You can follow the creatives behind the designs directly from the app.

Portfolio Review Week just started yesterday, but hosts around the world have been promoting their events for weeks in creative and beautiful ways. We’ve rounded up some of the amazing, eye catching posters for Portfolio Reviews worldwide.
Over the past few months, it’s been exciting to watch so many communities come together to plan their events for Portfolio Week #5! Every community we’ve seen has dedicated weeks of planning and care in order to create an event that’s truly memorable.
As PRW # 5 grows closer (May 12- 15, worldwide!) we’re taking a time out to reflect on the best moments of Reviews past. Take a look at some of our previous hosts reflect about their favorite parts of their events:

Recently at Behance, we’ve been on a tear updating and optimizing some of our core features. Today we gave Joblist, our tool to provide the best opportunities in the creative job market from top companies across the globe, a fresh new look. One of the biggest features we’ve been trying to implement all across Behance has been a more mobile-friendly responsive design. This will help our users who are constantly on the go keep up to date with their Activity Feed, Profile, and, now, JobList. We’ve added better search tools to help you actually find that next opportunity and we’ve streamlined the application process so that you can apply to your next dream job with just a few clicks.

A few months ago, The Made Shop, a design shop based out of Denver, Colorado, was approached by Adobe to remix their famous red A logo.
“When Adobe asked us to re-imagine their logo, we were super excited. The Made Shop works primarily in graphic design, but our background comes from architecture and object design, and we enjoy blurring the distinctions between those fields and getting our hands dirty making physical objects for graphic projects whenever we can. Among the many tools we love and rely on in our shop on a daily basis — pencils, Photoshop CC, power tools, Illustrator CC, sketchbooks, After Effects CC, exacto knifes, InDesign CC, erasers — a good many of them have that Adobe logo on them — so we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it.”
Instead of making one logo, they made a simple container and, over the next week, filled it with the materials that make the creative process unique and wonderful. Things like pencil shavings, hot coffee, and smoke bombs called the logo container home. Check out their amazing logo remix here.
It’s been an amazing year here at Behance and we’re so excited for what we have in store for the coming year. We’re constantly in awe of the work that you, the creative world, can turn out. You all help make life more interesting.
For the next few weeks, we’ll be taking a look back at 2013 and featuring some of our staff’s favorite projects from the past year at facebook.com/Behance while we recount our Top Tweets at twitter.com/Behance, so be sure to follow along!
Here’s to making ideas happen!
