Twenty-six year old Russian illustrator Fil Dunsky joined the Behance Network in December 2008 – in two and a half years, his project views have grown to 140,000, with 11,000 appreciations on his projects. His bright, colorful style is quite distinctive, he’s described his work as being“like marmalade: sweet, childish, positive, cheerful… It is like a 5-years old child sitting on the ground and playing with colors and forms.” The exposure he’s gotten from his featured projects has led to an impressive assortment of freelance gigs for creative employers around the world.
What kinds of opportunities have you gotten since since joining Behance?
Ever since I was featured at Behance, I’ve gotten loads of new work from all over the world – there’s something new every day! For example, in recent years I’ve done work for: Wrigley China, Danon, Cosmopolitan, Lowe Adventa, DDB Guangzhou, DDB Istanbul, Ogilvy Dubai, Danette, BBDO, Kotetkat and others.

Anything else you’d like to tell us about your experience on Behance?
Behance is truly one of the best platforms to help professionals from around the world to connect with one another. I’ve made so many great connections with creatives and employers – I don’t know what I’d do if Behance didn’t exist at all!
Even when there are critics to my projects it helps me to grow up, to change something, and to be better. Every comment I get on my projects, even someone saying “awesome,” – this helps me to prove that I’m on my way.
