Who are you and what do you do at Behance?
Raewyn Brandon, Rae Rae for my friends. Patterns, music, antiques, wood, flowers, jewelry, color in summer, dark in winter, vintage & eclectic at home, simplicity in my design.
I am the Brand & Communications Designer here at Behance. I spend most of my time designing all of our printed materials. I make sure anything printed that leaves Behance not only communicates a cohesive message, but also looks beautiful and in brand. Some of the work I’ve done lately includes the 99U Conference collateral, the 99U Books, Portfolio Reviews collateral & our Manifesto Letterpress poster.
What are three desktop tools you can’t live without?
1. Illustrator – Lets me create beautiful designs
2. Spotify – Music is my best friend.
3. Creative Cloud – Love seeing notifications as people comment, appreciate & follow my work.
What have you worked on recently that you’re extra proud of?
The design for this years 99U Conference. It was an awesome feeling seeing all the materials come together, and having twice as many people as last year looking at all the designs was extremely rewarding! Oh, and I absolutely loved the fluorescent color we used!
What do you listen to while working?
It depends what I’m working on. Generally I listen to fun upbeat music like Pheonix, Darwin Deez, Postal Service or the Black Keys. When I need to focus, I listen to chilled out stuff like Bon Iver, Kings of Convenience, The National or Radiohead.
Where did you grow up?
Most people know my country as ‘The Shire’. Yup, I’m a proud kiwi! Born and raised in a small town – population 5000 – called Te Kuiti, also known for the mass amount of sheep. Yeah, we have a “running of the sheep” down our main street once a year haha!
