'tis the month of changes - firstly, we launch our annual 'facelift'.
Our 2001 redesign was developed by talented designers Jane Ellery
& Tianji Dickens with support from our tech man - Daniel Heinonen.
Besides a new feel, we hope you appreciate our fresh navigation
and are as proud of our new site, as we are.
"Our redesign maintains fAf's high profile image in the art
& technology community, by using innovative, artistic, deliberate
and easy to navigate interface design. We wanted to breakdown the
spacial and physical barriers that fAf's online presence represents,
through the use of colour and easy navigation elements, without
intruding its rich content," said Ellery & Dickens.
fAf's back issues remain archived online, and we begin resurrecting
our resources section in phases - so send along websites of interest
& your latest works.
In fAftown, our sections have changed hands - we bid farewell to
Ni Kee Seah, Beth Rainbow, Jane Ellery, Damon McBride, Wendy Sykes,
Catherine Gould and Robyn Gerard and thank them for their diligence.
From July, we welcome on board Shu-Min Heng, Scott Esdaile, Elizabeth
Amon, Glen Wetherall, Gavin Thiesfeld, Evan Dean and Ruth Bond.
Our new team will continue striving to meet your needs.
