Year in Review

 

Introducing Creative Talent Search

Connecting creative talent with the world’s best opportunities.

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Creative Talent Search,  a new product to connect creatives across the globe with job opportunities from top brands and companies. Creative companies and hiring managers will have access to powerful new tools to discover and engage with the talent they need.

Any hiring manager using Creative Talent Search will be able to use advanced discovery tools to find the right talent for their job. (Finding experts in Photoshop who live in the Bay Area and have worked in automotive design is easier than ever!) Our custom algorithms recommend candidates for the role and get smarter the more the system is used. And of course, the public post advertises the job to the millions of creatives on Behance.

These are unparalleled features for a hiring manager —but the real benefits go to the creatives themselves. Our work with creative teams and hiring managers will bring you more opportunities. Already, tens of thousands of creatives whose work is on Behance have been contacted by recruiters. Our launching Creative Talent Search furthers two key parts of our mission: ensuring you continue to get the attribution for the work you’ve done, and giving you more access to the opportunities you deserve.

Now, more than ever, what’s on your Behance Portfolio will help you get discovered. To optimize your portfolio, we suggest completing your Work Experience section and filling out additional information in Project Settings like clients and agency info, tools used, and tags. And, participate in Community Curation: We think the best curators are Creatives themselves. Behance members get more exposure and opportunity as their work is appreciated by more people, and by other “highly appreciated” members in their field.

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.

Introducing the Behance Wallpaper App

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?

wallpaperapp

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.

Wallpaper-Launch-Post-2

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.

Most Appreciated Projects: Monthly Roundup

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:


The stair truck returns! A project filled with “Greatest Rides” from film and TV, from Dumb & Dumber to Back To the Future and Beyond. Kudos, Ido Yehimovitz.


Tom Anders Watkins of the UK’s super-popular animal logo exploration. In his words: “exploring ways in which logos can be formed using only basic shapes nd minimalist techniques.”

Introducing: Fully Responsive, Redesigned Profiles and Portfolio

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce you to a fully redesigned portfolio and profile experience on Behance. Our goal with these improvements is to bring your work front-and-center, and make it even easier for anyone to discover what you do, no matter what device they’re browsing on. We’ve also made powerful improvements to the experience of editing your portfolio and profile, all changes that’ll bring your work more into focus.

Some of what you’ll notice:

  • Fully Responsive Profile: Your work looks great across phone and tablets
  • Simple Editing Tools: The way you edit and organize your work is easier than ever
  • Your Behance Presence, In One Spot: Your Profile now encompasses much more about you – from the collections you curate to the projects you appreciate
  • Focus on your work: The design changes bring your work more into focus. Notice a cleaner, more minimal profile that helps your work stand out
  • Consistency across platforms: Now, your Profile is consistent and professional across devices
  • No More Color Customization: We have simplified the profile view on the web to match what has already been very successful on the Behances iOS apps by replacing color customization with a more neutral set of tones that better showcase the portfolio work itself.
