The New Behance Book: Taking the Pulse of Creativity Around the World

Dig in to 288-pages of the best work on Behance as selected by our master curators.

Today, I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the first-ever art & design book from Behance, “Super-Modified: The Behance Book of Creative Work”. This gorgeous, 288-page coffee table book—curated by Behance and published by the renowned Gestalten imprint—surveys the landscape of global creativity and offers keen insight into what’s coming next.

For this brand-new book, we asked the talented Behance curatorial team to share their take on new directions in art and design work, based on years of reviewing incoming projects uploaded by top creatives all over the world. To create a comprehensive narrative for such a broad range of work, we’ve organized their finds into 18 themed chapters that riff on the idea of “super-modified” creative work. 

Super-Modified looks at how a humble material like felt is being remixed in office spaces, character designs, and furniture; how recycled design is making everything from discarded aluminum cans to shipping containers fair game for reinvention; and how the grand, cinematic visions of traditional architecture are finding their way into interior spaces.

Beautifully executed by Behance’s design team, Super-Modified features work across the full gamut of creative fields as well as:

  • 288 pages of visually stunning creative work
  • A series of in-depth interviews with top creatives
  • Behind-the-scenes “process notes” on how the work was created

From innovative approaches to traditional crafts to unexpected uses of new technologies, it’s clear that classical approaches to art and design are being subverted, blurred, and reinvented by today’s creatives. Their ingenuity and imaginativeness—and their willingness to share it on Behance—has inspired us, and we hope it does the same for you with this new book.

    So… is this just a design booking posing as a creativity book, or are you positing they are one and the same?

    • Sean Blanda

      Not quite sure the difference there. It’s a collection of work that is pushing the creative envelope according to our seasoned curators. Throughout the book there are also interviews with some of the artists on their process and mindsets for executing their ideas. It makes a great (and beautiful) read!
