Kew Studio in west London has resident artists with their own workspaces, as well as a wide network of artistic members who access the excellent and unique printmaking facilities, talks, workshops and other events that are held in this beautiful former school building.
I was briefed to build a new website that was more inviting and friendly, and also would allow artists to update their own pages on the site.
We elected for WordPress which offers flexibility, all the features needed and plenty of scope to develop at the studio’s pace. The site is hosted with TSOHost, an excellent and low-cost provider who have recently begun to offer free hosting for charities.
The project included applying a new logo, integrating an existing print room booking calendar, and providing training to artists in how to manage their own page. We’ve also linked to a new Facebook page and added in features like Google map links and an email subscription service.
In some cases this has given artists their first web presence and I hope it will help them, and the studio, thrive long into the future.
