Congratulations are in order for Mariko and Catherine who have been working very hard to launch their a new project: Box Social, "a new adventure in Canadian art and design." The site went live just a day ago, and it looks great.
"Based in Calgary with eyes on the world, we, on the organizing end are either practicing artists and/or long time fans of finely designed and crafted objects of the eclectic persuasion. While our love for the unusual knows no real boundaries, we are particularly proud of the contributions made to the art & design world by Canada—Wonderland to the North. We have taken our particular interests in Western Canadian artists and decided it’s high time to promote them…"
The artist pages include lots of information from each person and each of their pages has a customized header, which is a nice touch. The site design follows the recent trend of texture and actual dimensional artifacts and scanned textures, but they do it well. If you are a Western Canadian artist and would like to showcase your work with Box Social, you can find out more via this page. Visit Box Social and help this site grow into a great destination for Western Canadian art and craft.
