The Results from the ‘Behance Talent Search: Student Edition’

All-nighters, limited funds, and not nearly enough hours in a day –being a student is tough! We recently ran a competition to celebrate the hard work and innovation of creative students, awarding prizes for the top work. Submissions were judged based on presentation, creativity, originality, thought-process and execution. Of the 2,000+ submissions, check out the lucky few who’ll be taking home a series of creative prizes:


Kachi-Katah, a transformative chair inspired by a Japanese flower, by product designer Masamune Kaji


A collection of oil paintings by artist Matthew Adelberg


Illustrations for an interactive e-book by illustrator Rafael Alvarez


A conceptual project with 3D modeling for a new Volvo model by automotive designer Alexandar Alexiev

How do I find a great designer on Behance?

We hear stories of top companies like Apple, Netflix, and tech startups hiring talent they’ve found on Behance everyday. But how do they discover the right talent in the first place? Here are the top three things they’re doing:

1) Search for the right things with our discovery tools
We offer robust tools found in the “discovery” tab with ways to search, sort, and filter that will help you find your ideal designer.

  • Start with the subject matter: use Tags (like iPad, iPhone), search by Field (like “Interaction Design”), Tools Used, or School Attended (found in the Advanced Search).
  • Then, Filter by Location for a list of design specialists based in your area


2) Leverage Top Creatives As Curators
The smartest recruiters/companies are “following” top creatives/designers that they like. By doing this, you not only get to see the latest work from these designers, but you also see every single project that they appreciate, comment on, or add to a collection. Since there are millions of projects on Behance, you’re essentially using the top designers as your curator to find top talent. This is the BEST way of identifying top talent in specific fields… just get the experts to do it for you!
