Creation of an easy-to-use and gallery-like website for artists

About This Project

Kiama Art Society needed to revamp their website to better showcase the wide variety of activities and talents within their club. The site also needed to be easy to maintain by the committee, some of whom are 60 years +. The site puts emphasis on promoting upcoming workshops, events and exhibitions.

With a simple and gallery-white layout, this site creates space for the artworks of the talented membership to shine through. It is simple to both manage and for members to find what they are looking for, but does not lack for sophistication either.

From the client
When Kiama Art Society decided to send its newsletter to its 200+ members electronically, we realised we needed to update our website. We are so pleased we decided to place our complex brief in the capable and professional hands of Handmade Web & Design.

At our initial meeting we explained that the website needed to reflect our Society and abound with paintings, people and information that was easily accessible to all ages. We needed various application and entry forms to be downloaded and our newsletter to be generated and sent to all members.

To our delight, on our second visit there it all was as well as a new artistic, eye-catching and appropriate logo Anthony had designed. They had understood our needs and developed our concepts into an exciting website. With a few minor adjustments we were up and running. Anthony, very patiently, gave us two thorough tutorials on the operation of the site and newsletter distribution. Any enquiry was promptly answered and a solution given and they were extremely encouraging and helpful at all times.

We've received many positive comments from our members as well as enquiries about our activities from people viewing the site, which has led to new members.

We are so glad we chose Handmade Web & Design for the quality of their work, their competitive pricing and their ongoing service.
