Skills: Building a Web Presence
Now that you’ve gotten the basics down, it’s time to learn how to put yourself out there. With the help of Miami-based artist and web designer, Leyden Rodriguez-Casanova, and artist collective Dale Zine, you will learn how to build a website that shows your work in the best light possible.
About the Speakers
Dale Zine, established 2009 in Miami, is an independent printer and publisher with the goal of giving a platform to multimedia artists and designers. With humble beginnings as a zine collaboration about Garfield, Dale has broadened into something of an open cultural space for the Miami community, with offerings ranging from all- age zine workshops to our independent radio show, pop-up events, and most recently a storefront in Downtown Miami. Collaborations of note include those with Tim Biskup, Matt Furie, Legowelt, Friendswithyou, to name just a few of our over 75 titles and counting. You can find our work in Miami, Tokyo, LA, New York, Beijing and online at DaleZine.com. In addition to publishing our own original content, we also host a series family oriented art workshops that focus on the creative empowerment of the children (Dale Kids).
