I have been setting up my own website for the ‘professional’ work I do starting with my current project and exploring other off-shoots which develop from it.
The criteria for selecting this style are based on the websites of two artists: the first is multi-award-winning photographer Nicky Hamilton whose site is minimalist in every way and which foregrounds his images while still discreetly showing his considerable CV .
The second artist is ceramist Claire Curneen who also has a minimalist genre website design which again foregrounds and exhibits her work making it speak for itself.
The websites have several things in common which I aspire to having: uncluttered home page; prominence is given to the work; discreet access to bio and CV; an artist statement is there if viewers want to read it but it is not overtly ‘on display’ with each project.
I would greatly value your views on it.
