Cool news from SVA and Behance:
School of Visual Arts has partnered with Behance to launch SVA Portfolios, an exclusive online network powered by Behance where SVA alumni, faculty members and degree-seeking students can showcase their original work and connect with each other. SVA is the first college to launch a network with Behance, joining organizations like the AIGA (the professional association for design), the relaunched I.D. magazine brand, and the Art Directors Club—whose gallery showcases the work by winners of the prestigious Young Guns Award, an annual honor for creative professionals under age 30.
SVA Portfolios is open to all SVA alumni, faculty members and degree-seeking students, and the site is designed to feature work from all degree programs at the College, including original animation, design, film, fine art, illustration and photography. Members can upload an unlimited number of digital files to create an online portfolio and multimedia gallery of projects for others to view and share. Their work will be showcased on both the SVA Portfolios site and in the larger Behance Network, which attracts over 10 million visitors per month.
Behance was designed to support the creative and business needs that creative professionals have, so projects on SVA Portfolios can be built with text, images, audio or video. Members can share tips and media, collaborate on projects, and get feedback from peers or mentors. They can also promote their work directly on Facebook and Twitter, and sync their portfolio with their LinkedIn account.
