Am I the only one who jumped on the bandwagon with the Behance prosite? It's a terrific tool for artists and designers to showcase their portfolio.
I've found Behance itself to be fantastic for promoting one's self, and for those who, like me, have no time to design their own website. Let's face it, it's not about designing your own website and making it work. With portfolio websites you need to be able to update it regularly, share the work with ease, and most of all you want people to see it. With creative social network websites like behance this is much easier because you do all the exciting stuff, and leave all the coding to them, and it's much easier to connect with other artists and designers.
The problem with the normal Behance website is that even though it is customisable, it is quite limited. With the new 'Prosite' you can upload your own header, choose from five different layouts and then fix margins, colours and options just by clicking and sliding away.
Of course this comes with a price of $11 a month, but don't roll your eyes and give up just yet. $11 a month is only about 7.8 Euros, but think about it. It's a fully customisable website, you're not paying anything for domain and it's super easy to use. If you have a Behance profile already, the projects appear automatically on your prosite account, you just have to add them. I do sound like an advert here don't I? :) Perhaps you could give it a try here and tell me what you think. (you can try it without paying first, when you're hooked on to it you need to pay though ;)).
