Long-time art critic, formerly of the San Diego Union-Tribune and L.A. Times.
Robert needed a website to act as a portfolio of writing, electronic CV, and to host his current and previous syllabi.
With extensive writing and a variety of project-types, his site is designed to provide viewers with easy direction to find what they’re looking for.
This was a done-for-you website package that included strategy, development, design, and content.
Once the site was completed, Jennifer performed a social media audit and profile refresh.
With updated profiles and a clear website message, Robert has everything he needs to communicate his extensive work effectively online.
What Robert says about working with me
“Working with Jennifer on the creation of a website was a wonderful experience.
She took the material I provided — my CV, links to writings and other relevant information — and shaped it into a cogent site that is easy to navigate and deftly reflects the various dimensions of my long history as an art critic, educator, scholar and speaker.
She has a keen understanding of how academics and arts journalists reach an audience and interact with those who would want to engage with their work.
In addition to creating the site, she synchronized it with social media sites to genuinely excellent effect.”
