My name is Lisa Mikulski and Brian Sherwin has invited me to contribute to this blog every so often about the importance of web design and Internet marketing for the arts. I am happy to do so because I feel this topic is becoming more and more relevant especially in light of the present economic situation. I also consider Brian’s writing and the content here at the MyArtSpace blog to be first rate.
While the economy is certainly a factor effecting the increasing importance of using the Internet as an arts resource, it’s really about more than trying to avert an economic crisis situation. Simply put, the Internet is a tool and it should be taken advantage of in good times and bad. It is my hope that my writing and thoughts might inspire or in some small way help you take better command of how a quality website can empower your business.
I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I am a graphic designer, web designer and marketing consultant. I have worked exclusively with artists, sculptors, photographers, galleries and art organizations for the last 10 years. I have the privilege also of writing art features and editorials for the monthly print magazine, INK Publications. I keep my own blog on art and design at ArtLOOK.
Thank you Brian for inviting me and I look forward to the dialog.
