June #workspacewednesday

For this edition of #workspacewednesday, we wanted to start sharing some photos from our own work spaces here at the Behance office in New York City.  First, some context.

We’re located in Soho, a neighborhood sandwiched between Greenwich Village to the north and Chinatown to the south.  Known as the Soho Cast Iron Historical District, the neighborhood was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1978 and many of the side streets still sport Belgian block roads and cast iron architectural elements.  During the second half of the 20th century, Soho was home to artist lofts and performance spaces.  In the early 2000s. the area changed drastically thanks to retail outposts from Apple, Bloomingdales and many others and in recent years, Soho has been included in Silicon Alley, New York City’s burgeoning tech scene.

As you might notice, we name our rooms.  This one is Victore, named after our friend James Victore.  The Library was “constructed” when we spread our office out to the floor below us.  Originally, we had some bookcases here and there, but we decided that we needed a space where someone could sit and contemplate or learn something new.  Or take a conference call.  We usually take a lot of conference calls.

An Updated, Mobile-Friendly JobList

Recently at Behance, we’ve been on a tear updating and optimizing some of our core features. Today we gave Joblist, our tool to provide the best opportunities in the creative job market from top companies across the globe, a fresh new look. One of the biggest features we’ve been trying to implement all across Behance has been a more mobile-friendly responsive design. This will help our users who are constantly on the go keep up to date with their Activity Feed, Profile, and, now, JobList. We’ve added better search tools to help you actually find that next opportunity and we’ve streamlined the application process so that you can apply to your next dream job with just a few clicks.

The Made Shop and the #AdobeRemix Project

A few months ago, The Made Shop, a design shop based out of Denver, Colorado, was approached by Adobe to remix their famous red A logo.

70517281569124b0e444f986ad7d5e35

 

“When Adobe asked us to re-imagine their logo, we were super excited. The Made Shop works primarily in graphic design, but our background comes from architecture and object design, and we enjoy blurring the distinctions between those fields and getting our hands dirty making physical objects for graphic projects whenever we can. Among the many tools we love and rely on in our shop on a daily basis — pencils, Photoshop CC, power tools, Illustrator CC, sketchbooks, After Effects CC, exacto knifes, InDesign CC, erasers — a good many of them have that Adobe logo on them — so we couldn’t wait to get our hands on it.”

Instead of making one logo, they made a simple container and, over the next week, filled it with the materials that make the creative process unique and wonderful. Things like pencil shavings, hot coffee, and smoke bombs called the logo container home. Check out their amazing logo remix here.

Behind the Project: Voting System Behance Reviews

In this series, we’ll look deeper into some of the projects on Behance.net that were especially admired in our community. Pau Alekumsalaam and Dani Llugany are the cofounders of Domestic Data Streamers, a Barcelona based creative labTheir other projects include various forms of data visualization, art installations, sculptures, and even handmade cards. We spoke with them about their project “Voting System Behance Reviews,” a voting system that allowed attendees at their Behance Review to visualize the popularity of projects they voted for. 

1) What was your inspiration for this project?
Following Domestic’s “modus operandi” and working as a creative laboratory, we try to focus on new visualization methods. There was a significant evolution between the first project -where we worked two-dimensionally- and the last one. It was conceptually designed to take place in one of the rooms in the Moritz factory, an old beer factory remodeled under the instructions of Jean Nouvel. You can imagine what a challenge it was for us!

We were interested in translating votes into a piece of work that had a relevant presence in the. Our intention was to generate a dynamic data stream that was reordered and created a tridimensional graphic—which was a literal bar chart.

Behance Success Stories: Michael Robertson

Here in New York, the Behance team is just getting back from Thanksgiving. We had a ton to be thankful for this year and it’s always great to hear success stories from our members.

Michael Robertson is the Director of Toon53 Productions in Johannesburg, South Africa where he collaborates with illustrators Kenneth Doust and Dean Ira. In August, one of the team’s projects, ‘The Weird World of Nox and Harper’ was featured on Motion Graphics served. For Toon53, it was a big moment to say the least.

“I joined Behance in 2009 – at the time I was joining as many sites as possible for exposure – uploaded a few old works and didn’t really do much for a good few years.  Fast forward around 3 and a half years to a few weeks ago when I decided to update my portfolio start applying to different jobs around the world on Behance and WOW is all I can say.  We’re based in sunny South Africa and are currently working for a company in Moscow, another in the US, one in Dubai and a handful here locally all thanks to Behance!!
