We were commissioned last year to develop a voting website for London’s newest affordable art fair ‘The Other Art Fair’, that delivers an open platform to connect art buyers of all tastes and experience directly with the most talented emerging artists before they are signed.
The voting site was built in two phases, with the second phase being completed recently for the international voting panel to cast their vote and select this years artists for the show in May 2012. With thousands of applicants applying to the show ‘Ryan’ the show founder and director needed a way of presenting all of the applicants to his selected panel online. So we developed an application area to the existing website for all applicants to submit their work and then further developed a secondary ‘voting website’ for all of those applicants to be fed into. The panel then cast their votes and the website did the rest, producing voting stats and analytical results for the final site to be populated before launch.
