I recently had a conversation with my movie-producer friend rooted in the comic book industry and he gave me some interesting insights. When he needs someone super talented to do work for one of his endeavors, whether it's web design or motion graphics for a new movie intro, he immediately goes to Behance and starts browsing by region.
It goes to show that those randoms who do unsolicited brand redesigns end up with the last laugh, because my friend just hired one of them based on those very design merits.
Makes me wonder that if you want to get real exposure, a single portfolio site isn't enough. Embracing the communities available to us can have some powerful results.
What sites do you showcase your work on? What sites have actually gotten you business?
