As 2010 approaches, our team found ourselves sitting around the table and taking inventory of what has transpired since we started working together in 2006.
What started as a bold experiment to organize the creative world’s work has now become the leading online network for creative professionals. Here are a few updates that we’re thrilled to share:
- The Behance Network now receives over 16 million pageviews per month from over 3.5 million visitors, and an increasing amount of this attention is being directed at the new “Served” sites like TypographyServed and FashionServed.
- While creating their online portfolios of projects, users can publish projects using a variety of Creative Commons licensing options as well as their own preferences. Projects are eligible to be showcased by leading curators on other sites around the web.
- Top agencies, galleries, and creative companies report using Behance to recruit talent – whether by searching the network or posting creative jobs. A number of agencies site Behance as their #1 source for finding talent.
- The 99%, Behance’s Think Tank on execution and productivity in creative industries, was relaunched in August and has gained a ton of attention. Hundreds of tips and articles have been published and spread across the web.
- Behance’s twitter accounts @behance @the99percent @actionmethod have become a great tool for us to celebrate the achievements of Network members, spread best practices, and gather feedback from the community.
- Major developments ahead! The Behance team has been working on the next version of the platform – as well as a number of key partnerships that will commence in 2010.
We are deeply grateful to the broader Behance community, and we look forward to serving you some wonders in 2010…
