Best of Digital Publishing Showcased in New Gallery

Our colleagues over at Adobe’s Digital Publishing team just launched one of the coolest uses of the Behance API to date – their own Showcase Gallery.

This new gallery showcases best-in-class apps developed using the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. Quick background on what the DPS is: it’s a publishing platform that magazines, newspapers (including top publications like The New Yorker and Vanity Fair) use to build mobile apps. Get inspired by how it’s being used today by browsing the gallery!

 

 

 

Live from 99U Pop-Up School

We’re in the midst of the first ever 99U Pop-Up School- a three day event all about super-charging your creative skill set for success in the 21st century. For our inaugural school session, we’ve selected three topics that are essential to making an impact with your ideas — career development, entrepreneurship, andbrand & digital strategy — and built an intensive day-long learning program for each of them.

Day 1 was all about how to build the creative career you want, and had a lineup that included Simon Sinek (author of “Start With Why”), Heidi Grant Halvorson (Associate Director, Columbia University Motivation Science Center), James Victore (Artist & Educator), Ben Barry (Designer & Co-Founder, Facebook Analog Research Lab), and Behance’s own Scott Belsky.

Here are some highlights from the thick of it. Today and tomorrow make sure to:

Update on Portfolio Review Week Four!

The weather is changing here in New York (finally!) and it’s getting darker sooner (ugh!) but it means November is quickly approaching.

So what’s new? We’ve sent out our first round of Digital Promotion Kits to our first round of hosts–we’re really excited about those as we’ve added some new things like Tips for Hosts. We’ve got almost every continent represented (we’re looking at your Australia and Antarctica) and we cannot wait to hear from the rest of you!

Behind the Project: Subjective Guide to Life

In this series, we’ll look deeper into some of the projects on Behance.net that were especially admired in our community. Michael Pharaoh is a New Zealand based graphic Designer. His other projects include a rebranding of Cadbury’s chocolate using 3-D modeling and a brand identity for a hypothetical bicycle club. We spoke with him about his recent project Michael’s Guide to Life, a guidebook based on personal experience and advice, modeled after family health books.

What was your inspiration for this project?
I personally just wanted a way to collect what I thought were important pieces of advice or skills I’ve picked up that have helped me through my life. I’ve always liked the design aesthetic of those big family health guidebooks, so I drew inspiration from that and wanted to create one for life.
