Ask DN: Is Behance becoming irrelevant?

    I think Behance is more for professionals. It require more work on presentation. On Dribbble you can post just something nice(whatever if it's realistic or not) or gif, and you will get attention.

      Worthwhile resource. I agree that to have a good presentation you need to put some effort into it.

      Putting more work into your presentation doesn't make it professional. I'd say about 80% of the case studies I see on Behance are hypothetical exercises from a student (or someone looking for a job).

        I've read your reply a few times now, and I don't understand how putting more work into a presentation doesn't make it more professional...

        If I look at a portfolio where effort was put into writing up a true case study with details explaining the decisions and thought processes that were behind each visualization that means significantly more than just a series of images. The effort does matter.

          He said it was more "for professionals". Like, the noun version of people that are professional (IE do this for a living). Most of what I see on Behance are design exercises, often from students. The amount of time in a project has nothing to do with how professional it is.

          Pouring three weeks into presenting design work that wasn't at a professional level to begin with won't magically transform that work.
