Want to visit NYC this summer and kick your photography portfolio up a notch?
We were psyched to see that longtime Behance member Julian Hibbard will be leading a month-long Digital Photography Portfolio Intensive this July at NYU’s prestigious Center for Advanced Digital Applications. The best part? Any Behance member who wants to register for the course gets 10% off!
The course is ideal for photographers or photography students who are looking to take on a personal project or who wish to develop a cohesive body of work. What can you expect? You’ll approach the development of a portfolio “as a multistage process involving a combination of research, experimentation, off-campus visits, weekly assignments and interaction between class participants, working photographers and industry insiders.”
Spend your summer crafting an amazing portfolio – you’ll get one-on-one feedback to help cultivate your personal vision. Sneak peek on some guest speakers: creative directors, a magazine photo director, the president of a commercial stock library, a curator, a creative strategist and the director of AtEdge. The course will finish up in a group exhibition at NYU SPS.
Behance’s first-ever art & design book, featuring content exclusively from the Behance Community, is now out! We’re thrilled to present 288 pages of work that demonstrates how classic approaches to art and design are being subverted, blurred, and reinvented by you, today’s creatives.
We dive in 18 themes, each showcasing work that riff on the idea of “super-modified” creative work. From unexpected uses of humble materials like felt, to how branding is moving far beyond the unchanging logo, to how handmade lettering is making a comeback – it’s clear that exciting things are happening in today’s creative landscape.
We’re gifting copies of Super-Modified: The Behance Book of Creative Work to some of you, our creative community – without you, this book would quite literally not exist.

This week is Adobe MAX, our yearly event where 6,000 creatives from all over the world are joining us in LA (not to mention another half a million tuning in online)! MAX is where the creative community comes together to share ideas, inspiration and learn from one another. During yesterday’s keynote, we got the chance to announce Behance’s newest service, Creative Talent Search, along with a long list of exciting updates and new products all geared toward giving you the tools and services you need to create.
This event is also a great opportunity to showcase the inspiring work that Behance members post every day. We’re thrilled that we got to embed your work in so much of the conference – whether it’s work featured on the big screen before the keynotes, or looping on monitors all over the theater, or in a more interactive way in pop-up Portfolio Reviews in the Community Tent – your work is all over. Some snapshots below:
Whether you’re brand new to Behance or have been with us since day one, a major key to finding success with Behance is to have as complete a profile as possible. This means different things to different people, but Behance offers a ton of ways to connect the different parts of your digital life in once place.
Portfolio Review Week #6: November 3-10, 2014

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!
