I regularly work with clients to design digital platforms, make websites and build digital communities for real-world activities using open source platforms like WordPress.
Over the last number of years, I have been responsible for the design and delivery of a range of web and print design projects in varied situations including the successful development of an open online environment for artist-led community Plymouth Fringe (in parallel to British Art Show 7) and pioneering online educational provision at Plymouth College of Art (selected for presentation at the Higher Education Academy’s annual conference 2013).
I also regularly work with clients to design digital platforms, make websites and build digital communities for real-world activities using open source platforms like WordPress. This work includes building the web presence for a number of Arts Council England funded projects (SOLO Contemporary Performance Forum, PL:ay Festival, Come To Ours & Picture In The Paper) and for independent Cornish growers The Modern Salad Grower and Good Earth Growers.
In 2011, in the run up to Plymouth hosting British Art Show 7, I worked to set up an autonomous alternative to a curated / hierarchical arts festival format to foster fringe and artist-led activity in and around Plymouth. Neil Rose & I developed and built the Plymouth Art Fringe web platform as an open and autonomous way for artists to connect with each other, to disseminate information about their plans and events, and to record a snapshot of artist-led activity in the city at that moment in time.
