One of the first things you'll want to think about when setting up your new website is the way that it looks. artcloud's website builder makes it easy to design your website in a way that reflects your brand and identity.
Step 1: Upload a logo with a transparent background
Start off by uploading a logo. This logo will only be used on your website, so try uploading different variations of your logo to find the one that works best with your website theme and featured images (see below).
We recommend a logo that is at least 100px in height and strongly encourage you to upload a logo file with a transparent background, so that it blends in nicely with the background colors.
Step 2: Choose your website theme
artcloud's website builder offers several different themes you can choose for your website. These themes are optimized to provide your website visitors with the best user experience, whether they are viewing your website on their computer or from a mobile device.
Play around with the different website themes to find the one that's best for you and remember you can change your theme at any time with just a few clicks. (We'll also be adding new website themes every month, so keep checking back for more!)
Step 3: Select your fonts
Next you'll want to choose fonts for your headers and body text.
Step 4: Add your featured background images
Finally, you can add one or more featured images as the background for your website homepage. If you have multiple images, those are presented to visitors as a slideshow.
Again, you'll want to play around with the images as well as the themes to choose the combination you like best.
Many galleries and artists choose featured images of their gallery or studio, artists, and artwork -- just remember that these images are the first thing your website visitors will see, so you want them to convey something about you!
