I have been lucky enough to be given a sneak peek into the new look for the MyArtFire page. ArtFire has been making steady strides in continuing to improve and streamline the look and feel of its web presence. As the tools and capabilities of this selling venue become more sophisticated, so do the web pages from which we use those capabilities.
ArtFire has recently updated the look of its homepage at http://www.artfire.com/, and has given artisans the capability of customizing their studios to reflect their own brands and styles. Now the MyArtFire page, the dashboard from which we can manage our ArtFire experience has been given a new look.
Below you can see what the current page looks like, and what the new page will look like.
As a person who usually has a hard time with change, I like serious look and feel of the new page. I was fond of the fun colors and icons that have been used up to this point, but as ArtFire emerges as a serious contender in the selling handmade marketplace, where the Internet the crux of its business model, it needs the power of a polished, sleek, well branded site.
I'm liking it…what do you think?
