I have been wanting to revamp my name and look on the web. People often ask me do you have a website? I then refer them to my blog and also give them the information that I am selling on Etsy.com. I would like to have one address that people can go to that will take them to a page where they can access my website portfolio, my blog and my etsy shop. There are several websites out there that bring you to a splash page. (Like a cover page that allows you to access either the website itself or the blog.) A couple of my friends have some great ones: Mary Dougherty, Anna Bartell, and Kaylan Buteyn. They are clean and easy to navigate and give you a quick sample of their work right off the bat. I was trying to come up with an idea for my own splash page that would allow viewers to access my pages in a creative way. This is what I came up with:
These funky mugs were so much fun to create! They are pretty big and not at all realistic! They each stand eight inches tall! I think the idea here is pretty self-explanatory as to where each of these mugs would bring you on my site. I want each of them to be glazed in a different crystalline glaze. The words are carved out on raised clay so they will not be glazed and will stand out clearly. I want my blog and Etsy store to remain the same. I am happy with they way they look. I want the website to act as an online portfolio of my work, with announcements for upcoming projects and shows, etc. The website will be a more professional look at my work. I am excited to get them finished and the site going. Hopefully I can start on it soon. I have a friend who is willing to help me get one up and running. What do you think?
