Behance Year in Review 2015: Illustrator Conquers All!

Behance is one of the most popular and well-loved websites where designers and creative artists can showcase their works. Whether you are a web designer, or graphic designer, or someone who works with UI or UX, or even any other creative design activity, Behance lets you put forth your work for the world to see.

Recently, Behance published its Year in Review for 2015. Let us go through some of the major highlights and noteworthy points. 

To begin with, the Behance community now has over six million people. Obviously, this is a very good number, but it also shows another point: there is no dearth of talent in the design community, and the fact that there are six million people in the Behance community shows that creative work and web design are a populous and highly saturated field.


Interaction Design grew at a faster pace as compared to other genres. Again, this can be read as the rise of interaction design in general, and interactive content in particular.

Adobe Illustrator beat all others, including Photoshop, and became the most popular tool of 2015. In fact, the number of projects made using Adobe Illustrator grew by 57% this year.

For 2016, the popularity of Adobe Illustrator does not seem to be falling anytime soon. Even more so, the design community is expected to grow even further, as more and more designers come forward. This will lead to better quality designs, and also, more competition in the industry.
