Web and Social Media Strategies for Visual Artists


Image of empty theatre in Belmullet Arts centreI’ll be visiting Co.Mayo this Saturday to take part in ‘Web and Social Media Strategies for Visual Artists‘, a Mayo Artists’ Network event delivered in collaboration with Visual Artists Ireland.

New Product website – Canopi

Canopi - Armed with confidence

Canopi – Armed with confidence

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.

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.
