In 2016, incredible things happened when you shared your work.

You went viral.

“I think that Behance is the most powerful platform in the world. Once I published my infrared photos on Behance, it became viral in a few hours. Within the week I had interviews and publicity from blogs and magazines all around the world, such as The Washington Post, Wired, Time Out, Huffington Post, and Hypebeast, and my art is now sold in 40 art galleries worldwide.”

You found international fame.

You inspired others.

“I use my Ipad Pro and Adobe Draw for all of my drawings. When I posted my drawing dedicated to Malik Taylor on Behance, I got a ton of attention from young students in South Africa. I ended up having the opportunity to conduct a Skype drawing lesson to their Disa Primary School classroom!”

You found your calling.

“I was recently a struggling student whose family didn't understand design as a career. This put immense pressure on me to prove I can make a living doing what I love. Thanks to Behance, the Food Network discovered my portfolio and reached out to me with a job offer. That opportunity would never have come to me without Behance— thank you so much for all you do for designers/artists, especially students!”

“The most amazing thing happened to me: In January, Publicis reached out to me to create a greeting card for the French prime minster. They discovered me through Behance!”

You made it.

"Universal Studios contacted me requesting a copy of my Jaws posters on Behance. They were redecorating their offices and hallways and thought it would look great there. A few weeks later I got a photo of my screenprint hanging at the studio right next to a prop from Mummy."

You came together as a creative community through 99U.

“There is no one better than the creative community at coming together to help support one another. A place that we like to go when we're needing a bit of a boost is the magazine over at 99U.”

You established your online presence with Adobe Portfolio.

“Many positive things happened as a result of having my work on Behance and Adobe Portfolio. I’m not a web developer or an interaction designer but Portfolio allows me to create a quality online portfolio. That’s how I found my internship in Canada with Behance’s network. My website was the element that made the difference.”
