Behance Network. Let yourself get tangled up
Article for online trends magazine TheTrendNet
What Myspace is to musicians, Behance Network is to creative professionals, particularly those interested in photography, Motion Graphics, typography, industrial design and fashion. But this social network also includes advertising, architecture, animation, art direction, jewellery design, videoblogging, podcasting and blogging, amongst others categories.
The user can set up a free profile, customize it and thus show his portfolio, where projects can be stored. Profiles also include functions that allow you to contact other private users by writing messages or suggest that they enter a theme circle (random access or restricted users groups, by invitation), comment and vote on their work, make calls for collaborations or link to other pages. It’s also possible to activate a monitoring thread for a particular creator so that, if he updates his profile with new work, you’re informed (Rss system).
And, as if that weren’t enough, there’s a message board with job offers from prestigious brands, a section for exchanging tips and the assurance of Behance Network that your work will be seen by millions of visitors, thousands of Behance members and the best agencies and companies around the world. It’s surely a network to get tangled up in.
