Last May 16 and 17 Cebu had its first ever Behance Portfolio Review. To everybody that's new to this review thing, Behance is a globally known online portfolio platform for designers, illustrators, photographers, and arists. Behance has a biannual portfolio review where young designers, illustrators, photographers, and artists are given a chance to present their portfolio to a set of panelists who are professionals in the industry, the panelist will give creative input about their portfolio after they have presented. In other parts of the world the categories per review are much more vast ranging from installation art, music, and many more, but this year for Cebu there were three categories for the reviews Graphic Design, Illustration and Photography.
The event also had various speakers like Inodoro, Happy Garaje, Dexter Bongo, and Anjo Bolarda. There was also an art market where local artists, and crafters sold awesome artworks and merchandise.
