After long time of thinking, decided to sign up at Behance Network. With Behance, people can showcase their design and development work and portfolio. Almost all professional designers, developers, and people related to Web Design Community can be found on Behance.
After having a look at Facebook Redesign Concept by Fred on Behance Network, I dugg the whole site for inspiration and looking at the design trends. I must say, the guys over at Behance are professional at their work, whether it is Illustrator, a Photographer or related to Art Direction.
Behance is great source for those who don’t want to spend time making their portfolios on WordPress,Drupal or Joomla. Setting up portfolios is pretty easy but takes much time in installation, mostly wordpress and then for looking up portfolio themes or create one, and then setup portfolio items. Behance make it super easy.
One more Behance’s feature which is well appreciated is that you are provided with the basic analytics, like who saw your profile, pageviews of your portfolio items etc. Its one of those thing that make people to sign up at Behance.
There are dozens of people their, if you want to get started well, you should follow reputed and giants of your industry. If you are a Graphic Designer, this is a list of 10 people you should look ahead to follow on Behance, because these 10 peoples has amazing fan-following as well as they do have the quality in their portfolio. They will surely stand as a source of inspiration for you.
