During the fall of 2014, Adobe and Girl Skateboards teamed up to create an “internship” that give five amazing students the opportunity to design stunning limited edition skateboards. Students “applied” through Behance, tagging their designs with #madethis and #girl and with hundreds of entries, Scott Biersack of Arizona State University, Caleb Morris of Savannah College of Art and Design, Mitch Viney from the University of Technology in Sydney, Emma Campbell of Auckland University of Technology, and Cody Bass from the University of Southern Mississippi were selected.
We’re stoked to see the work this group was able to crank out. Check out these video updates to learn more about their experiences:
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

Each month, our curators select one ProSite to feature as “ProSite of the Month”. Our June pick goes to Dustin Chessin, a California based designer who runs an apparel and custom typography focused design studio called Union Dues Design Co.
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.
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.
While it’s not recognized as an official sport (…yet), Creatives on Behance have been busy showing off their best work to commemorate the 2014 Winter Games. Below are snippets from our favorite projects that showcase work from all sorts of places–ad work, editorials, apps, and even industrial design. Click on a photo to take you to the full 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.
“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.
It’s been an amazing year here at Behance and we’re so excited for what we have in store for the coming year. We’re constantly in awe of the work that you, the creative world, can turn out. You all help make life more interesting.
For the next few weeks, we’ll be taking a look back at 2013 and featuring some of our staff’s favorite projects from the past year at facebook.com/Behance while we recount our Top Tweets at twitter.com/Behance, so be sure to follow along!
Here’s to making ideas happen!
