Louisville, Kentucky. (11/5/2012) – Behance.com’s International Portfolio Review week is coming to a close, but not before LEAP hosted Cincinnati’s first-ever Behance event.

“LEAP felt that a Behance Portfolio Review was a perfect opportunity to showcase our experience and interact with our local creative community,” said Brad Geiger, senior art director at LEAP. “Everyone on our Creative team wanted to participate because the environment that Behance fosters is the same that we emulate in our office, one of supportive feedback. It’s the only way we get better.”
The event drew students from some of the areas most elite creative institutions including the Art Academy of Cincinnati, UC’s DAAP program and the School of Advertising Art.
“The event allowed us a platform to provide guidance on how to manage an interview, navigate a first internship and ultimately succeed in full-time position,” said Nathan Dye, senior writer at LEAP. “Behance gave us a great framework, and we were able to interject our advice and expertise in a way that was tangible and personal for each attending creative.”
