Hi. My question is for authors which projects have more than 1000 appreciations: do you have clients from Behance?
Truth is: people who browse behance are bored designers at work (source: ex designer in agency)
haha this is the truth... its work enough to not be totally slacking off, but its not work.
"GREAT WORK. I LIKE IT. LOOK AT MY WORK PLEASE"
To answer - no, none. Can't say I remember my login credentials actually.
Good work! love the colors and angles! please check out my most recent work: linktodribbble
I've had two jobs through Behance, both full time. My current full time position came from Behance. Unfortunately, this was all pre-adobe acquisition - not a single one after it. I would say keep updating, but Behance has gone a bit down hill after Adobe started integrating it deeply with CC.
Jonathan maybe I am wrong or maybe I am right. But it seems to me like now our days Behance only feature projects from people who have paid Creative cloud active membership. After the expiration of my paid creative cloud membership, I decided not to renew it as I am working for a company who provide me with everything. Since then I have uploaded I mean really detail and creative projects but none of them get featured anymore HahHAHAHAHAHA
I've had multiple messages on Dribbble... but never Behance.
Same here, i had a couple of people contacting me through Dribbble but never on my Behance. Still update it tho as i use it as my portfolio.
Behance: +16k appreciations, featured on the homepage and curated galleries a few times, total client in 8 years: 4
Dribbble: 2.4k likes, never made it to the homepage, total clients in 5 years: 5
However, the amount of messages I received from Behance was quite a lot compared to Dribbble, especially for full-time gigs.
y'all got any of them invites?
Turned down most of the full time offers as I'm a freelancer. A couple of them were worth going to the interview, but didn't end up with an agreement.
For freelance projects, from what i experienced, I can say Dribbble clients are more aware of the time and money needed for what they want.
The clients come when you get a featured award.
Not true. Got featured, never got any client through Behance, though!
Actually, it's true!
Nope! Not really true. Its all about how creative you are. Getting feature is all about the dummy likes and dummy comments.
You can be as creative as you want, but it's worthless if no one sees that. Btw have you ever been featured?
It's based on quality of work I think.
Back when I was very active in Behance I used to get some freelance from it. Now all of my freelance comes from Dribbble.
Hi! I have a few inquiries and a returning/regular client that found me in Behance. But currently, I'm really into Dribbble.
I'm not with one with 1k likes too.
Not a single one from Behance. 3 freelance gigs from Dribbble.
Ended up doing some freelance for a company that approached me through Behance, but at least one CD I've worked for certainly used to search through it for potential people, don't think he contacted them through it though usually...
I have some illustrator friends that have gotten work from Behance, don't know anything about designers on the platform though.
I only got few Russian clients... looking at their currency, they're only willing to pay $1-2/hr.
They went radio silence on me when I told them my rate and this was when I was starting to freelance.
Yeah Dana, I got that too! Most of them I realize are spam or beginners who are trying to use you as advantage to know about cost of a project lol
Someone wrote me he was interested in buying one of my concept projects and turning it into a real project. When I gave him the price and ask him to tell me how much he could pay, he didn't reply for a month. Then came back after a month to ask again, and I gave him a price and told him there were many other people also interested in the project at the moment but I will give it to him as he was the first to ask. He said he wasn't interested anymore because there were others. And that he wanted to be the only one interested. I went on and asked him if he saw this project in my house or in a public place? Hahaha
Not a single one myself, but I did find other creatives to work with on Behance, so no reason to stop updating your profile.
Disclaimer: my projects don't have more than 1k appreciations.
Very often, in fact it's my main source.
UK Based so could be different as a lot of design agencies here in the UK use dribbble to find freelancers to come work in-house or remote with a kick off meeting in house.
