Meet the Team: Nami

Who are you and what do you do at Behance?
Konichiwa! I am Nami Berglund, Associate Curator at Behance.
I moved from Tokyo to New York in late 2010 with my husband. My daughter is in college studying Theater. I have been very fortunate to be part of this culturally-diverse team of talented people at Behance. Oscar Ramos Orozco and I look through all the projects that Behance members upload, spot new talents and curate for the Network and Served Sites. It is a challenging job because it is very organic. Before joining Behance, in Tokyo I worked as a Game Producer, Visual Effects Producer and a Strategic Planner.

What are the three desktop tools you can’t live without?
1.
Behance Admin tools – We have a custom curation tools for featuring projects on Behance and all to of the Serve Sites.
2. Google Chrome – The only browser that can withstand the abuse of opening multiple tabs at the same time.
3. YouTube and Soundcloud- Endless choice of music – DJ set from Matthew Dear, Michael Mayer and Old School House Music – Contemporary Music from Steve Reich and Phillip Glass. When I need extra push and focus, I listen to various Speed and Heavy Metal my favorites are Powermad and Ronnie James Dio.

What have you worked on recently that you are extra proud of?
The team has recently been awarded with a Webby for Self-Promotion/Portfolio in both Official and People’s Choice category. I am very proud to be a part of the team!

Can you name a few of your favorite blogs and sites?
Racked – the perfect website for keeping track of what is going on in the city. I love fashion and good restaurants.
Streeteasy, Apartment Therapy and Curbed – Living space is challenging in New York. I want to stay informed and inspired to utilize space.
