Show off your work with Creative Portfolio Display for LinkedIn
While LinkedIn's dynamic resume approach to a personal profile is a great way to share professional history and accomplishments, it's only half of the story for artist, designers, photographers and filmmakers who need a way to display their personal style and the quality of their work. Despite the importance of a portfolio or demo-reel for creative professionals there has never been a good way to share media on LinkedIn.
Thanks to the Behance Network there's finally a good solution. The Creative Portfolio Display is a free LinkedIn application allowing you to display projects you've added to the Behance Network right in your profile. The Behance Network is a socially driven portfolio site for getting exposure and sharing work over a variety of different social networks, groups or art and design sites quickly and easily. One of the highlights of the service is that you can upload unlimited text, images, audio and video of projects for free. You can also embed media from Vimeo, Flickr, YouTube and other sites where you may already have uploaded your work.
They've made it easy to share your work on social networks like Twitter or Facebook and to sync your portfolio with additional sites like the AIGA, ADC (Art Directors Club) Young Guns and Swatch MTV Playground. With the new addition of their LinkedIn application Behance has made LinkedIn a much more useful and interesting site for artists; I'm know I'll be using it more.
