Okie Collective is an art advocacy organization that fulfills a need for better recognition of Oklahoman conceptual and non traditional artists. The concept of Okie Collective was to create a sustainable online organization. The website has three major sections; a shop, blog, and profile pages for each artist. These sections correspond with the goals of supporting, promoting, and providing a network for each artist. The blog uses a custom Wordpress theme to showcase artists via featured artist articles or “shout outs” that promote local arts. The profile pages use a custom carousel and social menu bar to drive traffic to artist’s external websites. A fellow designer and I started the company to sell and promote our own work along with that of other Okie artists. Together with my annoyingly talented friends, Okie Collective is where I make collaborative art and promote other okie artists through design.
