a)
Are you an artist / creative? (see arty-farty version)

Are you a graphic / web designer, photographer, illustrator or glassmaker, a sculptor, fine artist or a 3d animator etc?

1/ The design industry is difficult to break into, there is loads of competition, so why not gain the edge with an online portfolio that the world can explore? Then, while applying for jobs, you can simply add the URL to your CV or business card so that it is quick and easy for potential employers to view your work. You’ll save time and money that would have been spent ie: preparing and sending discs or photocopying work. And, instead of lugging your huge portfolio to the interview, you can just supply your web address (provided they have internet access readily available, that is).

2/ Either way, it shows initiative and professionalism to have your portfolio in web format as well as print as the internet is the medium of the future. In addition, promoting your artwork online allows you to network with other artists / designers and possibly get the attention of potential clients. Maybe you were already thinking of obtaining a website but the costs of purchasing domain names and hosting can be expensive, not to mention hiring a professional web designer. So this could be the ideal solution, a web presence at an affordable fee which highlights your artistic & technical strengths.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3/ How it works - Simply fill in the form provided (either in web or print format) with as much information as possible. If there are any fields you cannot or do
not wish to fill in, leave them blank. You also need to send up to 9 examples of work (can be all images or a combo of website links & images). These can be supplied in original form or printed, ready for scanning (A4 max) or alternatively on disc or by email. Or if you need the postal address to send your images / artwork, please email a request.

Donations can be sent either by cheque (must be made payable to Jennifer Clowes), or via paypal to info@artisticdirectory.co.uk - NB: Should you wish to update your details or images, just resubmit the form etc and we will make the changes asap.

To recap:

Step 1: Submit the form

Step 2: Send artwork

Step 3: Make a donation

Step 4: Look for your listing on the Artistic directory (you should receive an email to confirm your portfolio has been uploaded)

b)
Are you an employer / art lover?

Are you an employer / potential client / art lover? Perhaps you’ve got a creative project that needs doing ie: a website designing or an illustration for a magazine? Or maybe you have a vacancy in your design department and are looking for a suitable employee? Why not search the Artistic directory for the ideal creative for your position? Alternatively, maybe you are simply an art lover and would like to peruse examples of artwork in your leisure? Then, you have come to the right place. Just click on one of the categories to begin searching. If you appreciate a person’s design style or technical ability, you can then contact them directly via email or by visiting their personal website. If you know of anyone creative who may appreciate an online portfolio to showcase their artwork, please refer the Ad. Thanks for your interest in the Artistic directory.
