In late 2012, Adobe acquired Behance – the leading online community and social media platform for creative professionals, which is often referred to as “The LinkedIn for Creatives.” Since that time, Behance has grown like wildfire: it now has over 3 million members receiving over 160 million page views per month…
With Behance, you can easily upload your photographs, projects, or portfolios and gain a fantastic way to showcase, share, and get exposure for your work as well as receive feedback from the creative community, and get inspired for future work. You can publish many types of media such as images, illustrations, video and audio, and follow statistics on how many views your projects are getting, and potentially make money. There’s even a job list for creatives and freelancers, with hundreds of employment opportunities.
A year ago today, Adobe announced it completed integration of Behance with the Creative Cloud, and it was making the premium-level Behance ProSite (which is normally US$99/year standalone) completely free for Creative Cloud subscribers.
This is one of the great benefits of CC membership. In literally five minutes, ProSite transforms your online portfolio into a slick, fully-customizable website hosted by Behance with your own URL, without writing any code… You can quickly design a stunning, professional-looking public portfolio site (see some examples here) that automatically stays in sync with your projects on Behance, increasing your efficiency and helping your work get more exposure from Behance’s enormous viewership as the premier creative community destination.
And so, as a Creative Cloud member – or even if you subscribe to just one app like Illustrator, you get the ProSite included as part of your membership at no additional cost… Check out these demos to see how easy and fast it is to do this, and to use Behance:
