I recently came across the site: behance.net - the site showcases creative portfolios and work from various people all over the world.
At the moment you cannot simply signup to the site, I am not sure whether or not this will change in the future but at the moment you can register interest in the site then be invited to join it. I registered my interest in the site and within a few hours was invited to join so it was quite a quick process.
Once invited I could build up a portfolio of my recent work, for the less tech-savvy creatives out there I can see behance.net being an excellent medium for getting their work noticed as opposed to trying to create a website for themselves. For me I am particularly interested in the way behance can help me to grow as a designer and developer, the site offers the options to request feedback on work, creative tips for design & development from other users and a whole gallery full of inspiring designs.
I am currently in the process of creating my portfolio for use on the site, if you are on there then why not send me message or get in touch! My profile is: behance.net/thomasdavis.
