Artist Town is a new startup created by Colin Vickers that aims to bring art-lovers and artists together.
The site is split up into the following entries:
|Members:||Members are the basic users of the site|
|Pages:||Each member can create pages which are the showcase for their art/service/location. Each page has categories associated with it which identify the page for searching.|
|Portfolios:||Visual content can be added to each page in the form of a portfolio. This allows the page to split its visual content into categories and will be used for refined searching. A primary portfolio is needed with a cover photo in order for the page to appear in the search results.|
|Events:||Events can be added to each page. These will be linked to locations and allow the user to search for events in his area.|
