Celebrating 21 years, New Irish Art introduces Freshmint


We are delighted to introduce our latest website redesign, it's called Freshmint and it arrives just in time to help us celebrate the project reaching it's 21st birthday.

Freshmint has been in development for most of the last year and during that time many alternatives have been tried and tested. This version has survived better than the rest and therefore becomes the foundation for our next phase of development.

In 21 years of operating The New Irish Art Project we have learnt to fail often, though having recorded 9.8 million Hits in 2020 with the delivery of almost 1.4 million web pages in 240,000+ visits, we think that failure of a certain sort is tolerable.

That said, this is a brand new software basis and a large number of web pages have been completely rewritten so, a "settling in" period is to be expected.

While every page has been tested, several times, and against the highest industry standards, we expect to see another glitch or blip (maybe more). In spite of which we are ready now to let this beast loose and to run the last part of our testing "in the wild".

The Freshmint design on New Irish Art should make the technical part of the website fade into the background and result in making the artwork shine more clearly, more often and to many, many more visitors.

The next phase of the project development is already on the table, the drawing board is reset and ready for action.

Contributing artists have made this project a joy and we are lucky to have won the support of such a diverse and talented portfolio of artists. Finally, and most importantly, a big shout out goes to each one of our friends and supporters and especially to YOU because without YOU, this would be neither possible nor worthwhile, so - THANK YOU!
