If you want a website we are happy to talk the process through with you. It is a good idea to look at some of our and other websites to see the what is possible. You can individualise your website with a choice of background colours or images and arrange you work into sections as well as having Contact, About and Exhibitions sections.
If you have some good digital photographs of you work we can work with those , if not we can arrange to photograph you work for you.
The process of setting up a website usually follows these steps
- Initial meeting to discuss the site: we will meet up and talk over what you want from your website and how best to achieve it for you and your budget. Together we can decide how many pages and images to include; what information you might like to display and how best for you to be contactable. We will talk through all the steps below and send you a proposal. You can then decide if you want to go ahead with the project.
- If you do not have a domain name (e.g. www.artgallerydesign.co.uk) we can discuss what might be good potential names for your website. We can then, if available, register it/them for you or look for suitable alternatives and register those.
