Behance provides an inspired environment for talent to meet opportunity. It's an online creative network where creative professionals showcase their work and companies discover and access that talent internationally. The idea was to build a platform that would give disorganized creatives the ability to bring their ideas to life and gain the exposure they deserve; giving them the time to focus on the creative process and not the maintenance or promotion of it. The Behance platform is accessible through the Behance API.
Behance boasts some great features:
- It attracts millions of visitors around the world who are looking to discover new talent
- It powers creative networks for top schools and organizations
- An artist's work is distributed to other online galleries, maximizing exposure
- The platform syncs with a fully customizable personal portfolio site builder
The Behance API will allow developers to build applications that incorporate the network's users, projects and works in progress. The API uses REST with all calls returned in JSONP.
The folks at Behance say the aim is, "to provide just about every function of Behance through the API, both read and write", and in order to do this they have plans to integrate oAuth 2.0 in the future.
Developers who wish to access the API can log in to the site and register an application.
