New SNAG Website and Maker Profile Pages

SNAG’s new website, created by web firm Social Design House and launched in May 2012, features an elegant new look, updated content, improved navigation, and a new high level of functionality. The Online Presence Committee, Board of Directors, and SNAG staff have all been working diligently with the aim of a superior product, so we hope that you will be pleased with the results. More phases of development are to follow.

As a part of this new site, SNAG has also unveiled the Maker Profile Pages, a location for the online portfolios of our artist members. Our goal is to provide a well-designed, affordable, and easy to use solution for web presence. These pages provide many of the advantages of a full individual website, at only a fraction of the cost.  We will be updating these pages and adding new features as they evolve, promoting it as a destination for anyone looking for interesting new work. This is a great way for us to pool our resources in an ever-expanding web universe, and to show the world why the artists, designers, jewelers, and metalsmiths of SNAG are the best in the field.

Anne Havel – Board Members Speak (July 2012)

I have a strong desire to be of service and I saw an opportunity to help that could be mutually beneficial. My “former life” could be of service to a fairly large organization and that interested me. I would now be able to meet some of my jewelry heroes and make a difference at the same time.
