I produced a website for Dublin City Council which brings together their 3 residencies opportunities for artists and makers: St.Patrick’s Lodge, The Red Stables and Albert Cottages. See the main site at Art Residencies Dublin.
I recently produced a website for a new Irish product that has been doing very well in-stores and on-line.
Canopi is a new product from Irish entrepreneur Sandra Walsh.
Canopi is a seamless way of adding arm cover to a sleeveless garment, instantly transforming the look of your outfit. It acts as covers for the arms; it is produced as a one piece which clips on to the bra straps for added security.
The site includes an e-commerce shop that processes electronic payments, orders with size and colour variations, shipping options and international delivery.

Brazilian artist and photographer Neyde Lantyer is launching her new Bahian photography and culture magazine website called ‘Fotografia E Cultura‘. It’s a beautiful mix of the visual cultural strands that make up the culture of Cidade Da Bahia, and it’s the latest site made by Artist-makers Online.
Please check out Neyde’s new project here.
I’ve just setup a site for Irish artist Maggie Madden. She was looking for something simple in the style of an indexhibit site, but I used WordPress to get the same effect. It gives her more room to grow, and if she gets tired of the indexhibit effect in the future she still has a solid content management system installed.

Artist Maureen Burke availed of my One-to-one website deal recently. We spent a morning session together, she brought along a CD of her images and her biography and artist’s statement. Over 3 hours or so we registered her domain-name, set up hosting, installed a content management system, styled the site and uploaded her content. All before lunch!

Recently a lot of the work I’ve done on websites has been done working one-to-one with clients sitting in on the process. They get to work with me step by step on the site build, directing their project closely, they get a flat hourly rate and the knowledge that the site is being worked on at a pace they feel comfortable with. There’s no delays, the site goes up as we work on it, problems are seen and sorted-out in real time.
So I’ve been thinking this might appeal to more clients, I’m calling it ‘One-to-one website‘, a new web-design hand-holding service where you get exactly what you pay for. I can setup your domain-name, hosting account, design your site, upload your images and galleries and train you in your content management system so you update the site yourself. Additionally I can add the ability to sell your wares online (eCommerce), add Facebook and Twitter (Social Media integration) and help your site rank better in search engines (Search Engine Optimisation).
Get in touch to discuss what we can do for our site in a one-to-one session!
Adrienne Geoghegan runs the Illustration Bootcamp courses you’ve probably seen posters for around Dublin, she wanted her site to reflect her own quirky style and her love of painting, collage and assemblage. You can see more at: www.adriennegeoghegan.com
I recently updated the website of Visual Artist Angela Fulcher. She had an existing Indexhibit based site, and wanted a style tweek, improve typography, and integrate her content and galleries. I’ve used Indexhibit in the past, it’s a great tool for artists because of it’s straight-forward concentration on image galleries over other elements. Because it’s a CMS (content management system) you can upload new content, galleries, texts etc really easily. While the default style is still pretty nice, it’s possible to personalise the site with CSS, and a bit of PHP hacking.
If you’re looking for an Indexhibit site, I can set one up for you with an Artist-makers Online hosting plan, and can style it to your taste too. Just drop me a line.
I’ve just finished off work on a new website for Neyde Lantyer, a Brazilian visual artist working with photography and installations. Currently, she lives in Amsterdam-Holland, where she develops her own projects while takes active role in art organizations and cultural enterprises. As an artist living between two countries, her artwork carries the influence of both her background in Brazil and her life in Holland.

Artist-makers Online have just completed a website re-design for Heather Finn Knitwear. This early spring clean to Heather’s site fuses some of her existing branding elements and put them together with a new photoshoot, a wordpress theme customisation and a sleeker online shop. Some of the custom illustration and logo design was used in her work for years, but it has been dusted off, given a make-over and re-used. The result is a new site with a new feel, that employs her familiar branding in a new way, and acts as an effective hub for her overall online presence.
I just completed a site I’m very proud of for Beechlawn Organic Farm. As well as being a rural family-business, Beechlawn Farm supports the local and seasonal food production and is the kind of business we should all be supporting at this time!
The site highlights their Award-winning Fruit and Veg Box Scheme which has recently won the Bord Bia’s ‘National Organic Awards’, Organic Box Scheme of the Year 2010. The site includes an easy to use e-Commerce system for ordering your Box, which if you’re in their Free Delivery Area is dropped straight to your door at no extra cost!
Una is an artist and illustrator and uses animation, collage, painting and drawing in her work. She studied painting, drawing and print making at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and The School of Visual Arts, New York and animation at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
‘I love the madness of collage. A medium, in the manner I use it, that allows me to juxtapose recognizable found images and transformed cutouts in pictorial narratives that invite the viewer to apply their own stories. Narratives at once oddly recognizable, yet uncomfortably odd; narratives often downright obscene, whilst pushing the chuckle-button; narratives that always aim to open the chute direct to the subconscious, that provoke an intuitive, not literal, sense, of what’s going on. That is my own goal in their making and what I hope the viewer will respond to in the viewing.’
