Twice a year, Behance presents Portfolio Review Week. These events form part of a global network of volunteer-organised reviews taking place in over 120 countries, aimed at bringing creatives together and sharing ideas.
Bring your portfolio or best work in hard copy or on a tablet or computer (there will be wi-fi) and have it reviewed by industry professionals. There will be networking opportunities, prizes from Adobe Creative Cloud and Behance, and beer!
With icy weather rolling in, why not let these wintery illustrations warm your day? Tom Haugomat is a French illustrator who is endlessly inspired by the city he was born and bread in – Paris. His work is primarily built on the power of negative space, which results in terrific imagery exuding either rigidity, or utter magic. This particular set was created for the Christmas windows of Burberry, Printemps.
Feeling warmer about winter approaching? Be inspired even more so, here:
Eiko Ojala uses a number of illustration techniques that visually translate into artworks that appear as though they have been cut from paper. Thanks to his fresh approach, attention to detail and delicate execution, Eiko has been commissioned to create pieces for clients such as The NY Times, HSBC, V&A museum and Harvard Business Review. Have a browse through some of his work and be inspired by this man’s meticulous approach.
In the words of Eiko Ojala: “I like to create with light and shadow. Every illustration I make is kind of a study of those. Somebody once said that I draw with light.”

It can be challenging for motion graphics artists to come up with a new and fresh way to animate a logo build or explainer – sometimes, it just is what it is. That’s why when we see a cool new way to get these things done, we get all excited inside. Take a look at this lovely quickie explainer by New York’s Wei-Te Shyu, which covers the basics of what the company is all about and also does a great job of showing off the modular, geometric logo and icon treatment. Enjoy!
In light of the long weekend coming up, I thought it would be a great time to post something exceptionally inspirational. Something that could get a fire started somewhere in that creative mind of yours! We have 4 days off people. 4 DAYS!!! Just think of all the amazing personal projects you could start/continue/Finish! Buy some paint! Write a song! Knit a jumper! I promise you, you wont regret it.
On that note i would like to show you a video that 2 french street artists put together a while back. Watch closely… this could be you this weekend.
Supakitch and Koralie joined forces together as a power duo in their craft. Both heavily influenced by Japanese art, their work showcases images of geishas, dragons and other elements of the culture. You can most definitely view more of their work here.
There are a million ways to make a really awesome video and even more ways to communicate a great idea. Let us help you achieve your goals !
This sugar-coated event was one bustling with people of all shapes, sizes and careers each with one thing in common; the amount of Oreo treats, entertainment and activities had every guest’s childhood alter ego bouncing off the walls. In the true spirit of ‘play with Oreo’, Candice Mullins from Plato Communications, Thurlow from Mbongiworks, Mariaan Steyn from In Any Event and Grant from Oreo put together this whirlwind of sweet mayhem.
For NICE Magazine: Contrast & Contradiction we embarked on a journey with the hope of creating a photography feature in which we could showcase the work of old school purists and new school adventurers. To our delight we came across Sean Tucker, who appears to be a bit of both.
Sean is a photographer living and working in London, who does a little bit of everything. We asked him to weigh in on his process, motivation, and plans for the future.
Like what you see? Well here a few more images, taken from Sean’s Instagram account.
If you would like to see Sean’s work on a recurring basis, you can follow him. On Instagram. On Twitter. Not in real life – that’s a bit creepy.

Since 2010 the Get Set Festival has been showering the Porto community, in Portugal, with exciting art events – bringing workshops, urban installations, performances, exhibitions, conferences, parties, concerts and many more creative experiences to town. The festival’s latest identity, by local firm Epiforma goes full on Gestalt with a geometric wordmark that just doesn’t want to sit still at times. Their new design might just be in perfect relation to the restless creative spirit that is never completely comfortable with just sitting still. What a lovely and playful identity for a festival that is set on establishing a platform for celebrating creativity. See full project here.
Oh the joy of celebrating good design! Find out more on how to create brands that reel people in with excitement.
