Behance Network iOS Application
Behance is the leading online platform for creative professionals, which currently serves more than 6 million visitors per month across Behance.net and their "Served Sites". Portfolios are showcased in galleries on sites that include LinkedIn, MTV, and the AIGA. The company also holds an annual conference in NYC, The 99%, which has attracted speakers such as Jack Dorsey and Seth Godin.
Behance approached Thumb Labs with a plan to extend their existing network to the iOS platform, through a JSON API that they had developed. Working hand-in-hand with the creative teams at Behance over several months, the core feature set of the website was adapted to the small screen. Care was taken to both preserve the network's unique experience, and to re-envision its many components in light of the new mobile context.
The app includes access to all user galleries with search and filtering capabilities, profiles, relationships to other users, collections, statistics, commenting, 3rd-party social integrations with Facebook and Twitter, and much much more. Users are able to download all of their own galleries to their mobile "Portfolio", which will be available to them even when they are without internet access.
At Thumb Labs, it was incredibly exciting to bring this app to the talented users of the Behance Network.
