Shypocket - New Mobile Worldwide Artist Opinion Website

Weisler_sampleA new mobile website for artist opinion was quietly launched last week in Maine. The site, www.shypocket.com, invites professional artists to publish daily commentary on topics that are hot or top of mind for them. With an edgy look and simple interface, shypocket.com is designed to display bold and provocative insight on a real-time basis.

“The mobile platform is finicky, challenging, and oh so very cool,” said shypocket.com creator, Cara Fox. A longtime writer and creative director in the design communications field, Fox dreamed up her mobile forum while out west in Taos, NM. 

Artists are encouraged to contributed mini-essays in a more raw and everyday voice than they are accustomed to providing for galleries and artist statements. The mini-essays on shypocket.com are 90 words and supported by a single image.

Fox does not intend to make shypocket.com bigger that it is now, visually. The site is designed for the small, smartphone screen and for swiping and tapping. It can also be viewed on a tablet device, but it not accessible from a desktop computer. The goal is for the forum to be as dynamic and in motion as the artists who publish opinion on it.
