Drawing upon the varied experience and skills developed throughout our respective careers in France and abroad, Art Talk Write can help you to effectively communicate about and promote your arts practice, exhibition or project with successful results. All our communication services can be provided in French and English.
Websites – design and content
If you would like to create a website or redesign your existing one, we can help you build a professional and contemporary website that effectively presents your work across different media. We can design your site from scratch or create just the structure and train you to update it yourself, or simply advise you on your content and design choices.
We can also maintain your website regularly with your updates and visually appealing content. Whether you have a new exhibition, event or project to share or simply new artworks to show, we can assist you to write or edit texts, upload images or videos for you or simply advise you on the selection of visuals. Art Talk Write can offer this service either when it is required or on a more regular basis.
Both French and English versions of your website can be created as part of this service.
Portfolio – design and content
We can help you to create a new professional portfolio or to up date your existing one to showcase your artwork online or for contacting galleries, open call and residency opportunities. This service can include a translation of your portfolio from English to French or vice versa.*
We offer three options:
- Portfolio content: Assistance with selecting or improving your images, writing or editing your texts and layout advice. This option can be done in French and/or English.
- Portfolio design: Art Talk Write will design a professional and visually attractive portfolio using the content you provide. French or English translation can be requested.
- Portfolio content + design: This complete package combines both the two previous service options.
*If you would only like your existing portfolio translated into French or English, please contact us to discuss a quote.
Our Artist Profile is specifically designed to be about you and your practice, combining your images, biography, artist statement* and contact details, in a one-page document. This professional promotional tool can be sent directly to the galleries and art spaces of your choice either by Art Talk Write or yourself, or it can be used as an exhibition text for visitors, in project submissions or to contact the press. The Artist Profile is provided in both email and PDF format and can be done in French and/or English.
* You can also request texts to be written by Art Talk Write.
