Although Webhostcreative http://webhostcreative.com is based in Norwich and has strong links to the Norwich University College of Arts we see our markets spread across the Eastern region of the UK and also expect to attract commissions globally. Gaining the trust of our clients is seen as central to the way that we work. This can only be done by listening to their needs and providing the reassurance that we have the right level of skills experience in the field of Art and Design.
The company’s objective is to showcase artists’ work so that they can reach the wider artistic and design community. In particular we aim to help young artists at undergraduate or post-graduate level consider the effectiveness of a professional web presence in which their work is displayed to its best advantage through the use of web gallery portfolios and the development of a house style and branding. These websites will be vitally important as an on-line CV and for advance publicity for upcoming shows and exhibitions in which the artist is involved. We will be offering Content Management Systems for those wishing to update work regularly but we will also offer an editorial service ourselves and a reasonable cost.
Original artwork is rarely bought ‘unseen’ and for the this reason an eCommerce component for these websites is not considered a priority, although we do recognise that in some cases prints of artists work may be more suitable for this kind of exposure in which case this is an option we can offer.
Our team members have a background in fine art, graphic design and animation.

He has worked on a wide range of projects from magazine design, web design, concept art, music, photography and video. He has worked for BBC Bristol as an editor and moving image specialist. Jack was a winner of the prestigious D&AD Graphic Design Award in 2009.
