Wow! I am so excited to see that Behance’s much anticipated ProSite launched today. No announcement, nothing. I guess that’s what they call a soft launch! But I am way too excited not to write about it. No way!
I seriously think that Scott Belsky and his team have created a tool that will change the world of online portfolios! Dear students and young designers, there is no more excuse not to have a site up. With ProSite it will be a matter of minutes to be up and you will no knowledge of coding whatsoever, yet you’ll be able to fully customize it. I just played around with the interface and am blown away. (Dear WordPress, I love you, but could you maybe have a peek at what ProSite has created?) The ProSite user interface is a work of beauty and is incredibly intuitive. Building a portfolio has been easier.
But ProSite goes way beyond being a simple portfolio site. ProSite is built upon the Behance Network which ties in to several other platforms such as LinkedIn, the Served Sites and others. This means with a click of a button you can decide which platforms will get notified with the new content. Don’t underestimate the power of millions of creative enthusiasts that visit Behance sites every month to watch and follow the latest and greatest work by creative professionals across industries. (I visit their Served Sites all the time.)
I am thrilled that ProSite is finally live. Congrats Scott, Mattias and team!
(No, Behance did not pay me for this post, I am just seriously excited about the product they’ve built. Consider me a fan!)
