Custom Website Design for Artists in Marin County.
The importance of a good first impression should not be overlooked. If your Website looks good it makes you look good. This is an eye catching opportunity that should not be underestimated. You have choices of how your website can best reflect who you are. Your message should be clear and consistant.
Clear navigation and well designed page layout are top priorities for me. Once you have caught your viewers attention the information they are seeking should to be obvious and accurate. Your website should speak for you. It's your domain - your home in cyberspace. If you already have a website does it reflect who you are and what you do?
Make your Website a Master Showcase
Every artist has a certain "look" or essence that can be seen throughout all of their work. I challenge myself to get to know my clients and bring their Artistic Expression to their website. An artists' uniqueness becomes the strength and theme of the site. It is their art that makes the site a success because it reflects who they truly are.
The website for artist Claudia Tarantino shows the impact of this kind of personalization.
There is a great benefit for every artist to have an online portfolio to represent themselves and their artwork.
Websites don't need to have a blog included but all blogs are a part of a main website. The blog often functions alone just as a blog. WordPress is the most popular website/blog platform and it offers the most flexibility. Squarespace is easier to work with and has become very popuar for people wanting to maintain thier own site.
Banners for Blogs
A specific designed banner placed on the top of the pages can create a feel for what the site is about. The banner provides focal point and assures the viewer that they are still navigating within in the same site as they move from page to page.
