As many Behance members know, being Featured by our curation team is a hard feat to achieve! Our Curators (there are two of them!) look at thousands of projects every day and pick the best of the best. We’ve recently started reaching out to our Featured Members to hear about their experience using Behance and here’s what a few have had to say:
“It’s an honour for me to be
featured on the website that I love and respect the most, being featured
among these amazing works is one huge acheivment for me. I got the email
while I was playing with my 3 month baby girl! So you can imagine that I
was already feeling awesome, but when I got your email the feeling just

Adobe Sketch brings inspiration, drawing, and your creative community together in one place. Capture your ideas as sketches and share them on Behance for instant feedback. Sketch gives you the freedom to find inspiration, explore ideas, and get feedback from trusted peers—wherever you are.
Sketch with tools that behave like the real thing. Create with essential drawing tools that interact naturally with the canvas: a graphite pencil, an ink pen, two blending markers, (brush tip, chisel tip), and an eraser. Draw with your finger or a stylus; the natural drawing tools respond beautifully.

Portfolio Review Week #6: November 3-10, 2014
We first launched Portfolio Review Week in 2012 with the goal of bringing together creatives to share their work and develop their craft. In the five Portfolio Reviews since then, we’ve been amazed by the stories, photos, and videos of creatives coming together in their communities across 80 countries.
Portfolio Review Week #6 will be held November 3-10, 2014. We’re looking forward to a week of incredible events put together by first time and veteran hosts worldwide!

Each month, our curators select one ProSite to feature as “ProSite of the Month”. Our June pick goes to Maarten Deckers, a Belgium based designer, typographer and design consultant who specialized in identities, logos, books, magazines
In this installment, we’re featuring Mart Biemans, a young digital artist and illustrator from The Netherlands. Since joining in 2008, Mart has been featured in number of the Behance networks and was profiled in Adobe’s New Creatives campaign earlier in 2014. Below is an excerpt of a testimonial from the artist.
“My life has proven that it is almost impossible to predict your future, even though I’ve had dreams and expectations like every other kid growing up, things turned out completely different than expected. . .
Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects on Behance this month:
League of Legends may have 27 million players per day, but it hasn’t been redesigned since 2009.Martin Vlas took it upon himself and Behancers are going nuts for his new UI design, improving everything from login to character design.
Redesigns are apparently this month’s theme, as another super-fan has taken it upon himself to give a new look and feel to one of his favorites: Futurama. Check out FUTURAMA 3D part 1 by Russia based Alexey Zakharov.
We’re thrilled to announce a new feature called “Creative Cloud Market“, a collection of high-quality, curated assets for creatives by creatives. Now you can access a remarkable selection of vector graphics, icons, patterns, UI Kits, for-placement images, and more from your Creative Cloud Desktop app – all part of your subscription to Creative Cloud.

We’ve partnered with some of the most talented and experienced Creatives on Behance to create a library of ready to use, royalty-free assets that assist in the creative process. Gone are the days of scouring the web for UI/presentation kits, settling for mediocre placement images, and spending hours masking products and devices. Now you can access thousands of professionally crafted files including devices, branding layouts, wireframes, charts, vector shapes, repeatable patterns, backgrounds and brushes for your next personal or commercial project.

One of our favorite things about Portfolio Review Week is seeing the incredibly unique pictures that come out of these global events. We have seen some amazing things, from Behance cupcakes, to live paintings, to homemade photobooth props; our hosts and attendees can get super creative! Because of this, we thought it would be a fun idea to create Portfolio Review #5 Superlatives.

What’s on your computer desktop? For most of us, it’s a vacation photo from years ago, a default background that came with the computer, or something you set a few months ago that you haven’t had a chance to change. We design our office spaces to maximize creativity and inspiration, but what about the place where we spend hours of our time, the computer?
That’s why we created the Behance Wallpaper app—an easy way to make your workspace more beautiful and discover new creative work at the same time. For this first time, see creative work from Behance in all its hi-res, full screen glory on your desktop.
Once you install the Wallpaper app, you can choose from one of 60 designs (with an option to sort by creative field) by some of Behance’s top creatives, then choose how often you want to change your background—hourly, daily, weekly, monthly. Whatever your setting, the desktop will automatically change so you have a new design as often as you like. The app will stay fresh, with new designs added each month on top of what’s there now.
Loving a particular wallpaper and want more? You can follow the creatives behind the designs directly from the app.
