Behance Project View

This project is a rethinking of the core of our product— how should we display work from creatives on Behance? Our emphasis was on big, beautiful images that worked well whether you had 1 image or 300.

The metric we're most interested in for this feature is an increase in published projects per day. New features included slideshow, galleries, and an improved lightbox view.

SKETCHES & THOUGHTS

We kicked off the project by doing a heuristics analysis on the home page, identifying weak spots and areas with room for improvement. A couple of discussions and brainstorming sessions later, we were ready to begin sketching out solutions about what would work best and moved on from there.

 
 

THE DESIGN AND RESULTS

The old design heavily promoted images being shown at a max width of 1250px. Our hypothesis was that by changing the default image display to be loaded at full width (1400px being the minimum, the width of the browser/image being the maximum) users would have a better layout to show creative work on.
