Finding the right tools to build a minimal expensive web page to show our work and write about it can be really a pain in the neck. Fortunately things are changing.
Check this out: Halifax based mixed-media artist and designer James White wrote this post about tools that he uses to present his artwork. Signalnoise.com is the website name and to read the post about the tools click here. Also check his portfolio on Flickr.
Hope this helps ;^)
