Chances are you've seen/heard of/shared The Holstee Manifesto at some point, but a lot of you probably don't know the story behind it.
In the months leading up to the summer of 2009, brothers Mike and Dave and their partner Fabian started Holstee as a small side project. Having just quit their jobs without a plan or idea of how they would spend their days, they sat down together on the steps of Union Square and wrote down exactly what was on their minds and the tips of their tongues. It was about what they wanted from life and how to create a company that breathes that passion into the world everyday. The result became known as the Holstee Manifesto.
Since 2006, Behance has been the leading online platform to showcase & discover creative work. Creatives update their work in one place to broadcast it widely and efficiently and companies explore the work and access talent on a global scale- plus it gets millions of visits a day! You can also easily transform your profile into a customized website with Prosite. If your work isn't up there yet, do it now! [event organizer advice]
