Before Christmas ANB Member Colin Veitch took up the Website Design Offer and was delighted with the results. Below are some of his comments – scroll down to find a reminder of the offer.
“Technical self help websites, you see them advertised Free scams etc. Well they are not free.
I wrestled with the problem for many months this year and had decided to take up a course on website design. Sadly, Bedfordshire Adult Education courses had been scrapped due to the cut backs. So I was left high and dry.
Sharon (at PS Arts) created a special offer for Bedfordshire Artist Network so with my forthcoming exhibition of mixed media prints and paintings I need to get my promotional bandwagon on the road. Stupidly I had photographed every painting, print or sketch at a low rather than high resolution – so Sharon informed me, but she took me under her mighty wings and we flew at creating a website.
My crazy and zany ideas had to be curtailed but under Sharon’s expert guidance and experience a draft site became an reality. Its exciting see your work presented in an entirely new creative format.
It’s not instantaneous process, you must have patience. From the initial ideas to the finished product was about three weeks. Could have been quicker but Sharon had to re-shoot every picture again and my original CV had to be severely edited – again Sharon’s advice here was spot on.
Seriously, despite these challenges, I would heartily recommend anyone who’s toying with the idea of starting a website… give Sharon a call and let her use her magic.
