RE: Best website building services and best platforms to be on
Help with Portfolio website
I've been tooling with this portfolio site for the better part of 5-6 months and I am stuck with analysis paralysis. My daytime job is web designer/developer so I am being super nitpicky with the site as a whole. Normally I can just breeze through a site design on client projects but I am getting away from why I want a portfolio to begin with.
Any input is welcome and needed. If you asked me what I was attempting to do with this site is build on a base framework of a portfolio site then branch into a art knowledge/journey blog with eventually adding a shop.
Site URL is http://jeremythomas-art.com/
It's not done. I have copied text for filler everywhere and I need to add more artwork.
RE: Business cards
Since everyone picked the first one I must be an art director cause that's what I like. Lol
But the Graphic designer in me asks about the Red A and K. Is it significant? It's slightly distracting when I read the name. But overall this is an awesome card. Any cardstock in mind?
What kinds of Problems do Professional Artists have?
I've been reading up on a lot of subjects to broaden my perspective on how I create art and where should my work live in regards to who it serves and I came across a thought.
What kinds of problems do professional illustrators/painters/art teachers have? This comes from a place of; in life, we choose the paths we want to be based on what we are interested in. And that interest comes with a set and sometimes fluid states of problems to solve. And solving problems is what we like to do.
I don't know it this makes any sense. But I thought I'd ask.
Gaining clients through your portfolio website
Hello All SVS"ers! Ha
I am building my first art portfolio online. I have a background in website and graphic design but I am used to more corporate/business style sites and I want to make a great art portfolio that feels more personal, professional and fun.
I am looking for do's and don'ts and whats the best ways to gain clients through that channel. Should it be more of a service-oriented site like (hire me because I do this-this or that) or more of a display gallery with a minimal push?
Or do I make it feel like my services are like products? I guess it all depends on my goals right?
RE: How do you provide value as an illustrator
@kathrynadebayo This speaks volumes on how I also view art as a whole and how it fits with humanity. I love this.
Interconnectedness is something i deeply value and hope i can translate through my work. Bravo!
I agree this is one of those subjects that will forever be on my mind and in my spirit while I go through this journey.
