Back in 2006, when our small initial team was imagining ways to organize the creative world and empower the careers of creative professionals, we knew that we needed to start with ourselves. So the very first thing we designed at Behance was the Action Pad.
Long before the launch of the Behance Network, ProSite, and 99U, and before Action Method grew into online and mobile applications, Behance began with paper and our mission to empower the creative world.
Brainstorming from our apartments during the hours outside our day jobs, we used our personal Action Pads to capture and complete countless action steps that ultimately pushed Behance from vision to reality.
In 2007, at the insistence of friends who wanted Action Pads of their own, we expanded the line and made it available online and through select stores like the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco.
Today, as a company working at the forefront of technology and social media, our team at Behance still benefits from the tangible nature of Action Method products.
We have embraced the opportunity to accomplish Behance’s mission not only through technology and online networks, but also through a curated set of products and services that organize and empower creative professionals.
