In case you didn’t know, we have a kickass street-team of agents around the world representing Behance by planning events for the creative community, and acting as a local resource and lifeline to Behance in some of the biggest cities in the world. Recently, we added three new Ambassadors. And here they are:
Los Angeles, USA: Michelle LeClerc
Michelle LeClerc drew all over a perfectly good chair with a BIC pen when she was 5. Though critics agreed the improvement was unnecessary, they applauded her creativity & enrolled her in art classes. Michelle now occupies herself as a freelance Art Director + Designer in Los Angeles, where she’s managed to leave her furniture alone. She works with a wide range of clients from entertainment to retail, specializing in fashion, music & culture.

Amsterdam, Netherlands: Karisa Jansen
Karisa Jansen is finishing up her studies in Advertising, Marketing, & Communications. She works part-time for Creative Agency edsonwilliams, who represents talented photographers and illustrations in hubs all over Europe. On the side, she organizes “Wednesday Dinners” in Amsterdam, a project bringing local people together in a comfortable, casual setting, allowing busy creatives to meet new people (locals or city newbies).

Istanbul, Turkey: Gökhun Güneyhan
Visual arts and interactive media are what makes Go khun tick. He was just 12 when he started to teach himself web-developing. After years of self-teaching, he now designs for OgilvyOne (though his formal studies were in Political Science). Gokhun’s hunger to discover the unknown and learn something new each day drive him to travel as much as possible, where he finds himself inspired by different custom, ideas and behaviors.
