2. Zimbabwe Sculpture

Details:
A beautiful new e-commerce site for 2002. ZimSculpt.Com sells only the very finest examples of Zimbabwean Sculpture and provides in-depth showcase portfolios about their contributing artists.

Our aim with this site was to make this site the "centre of excellence" for all Zimbabwe Sculpture art. To help achieve this we designed a very clean and uncluttered interface with plenty of "space" so as to put the main focus on their outstanding examples of sculpture art.

Within a short period, our Search Engine submission and marketing service placed the site at the top of the popular Google Search Engine, for the search term "Zimbabwe Sculpture" (Do this Google search here - opens in new window).
Technical:
This site is written in the dynamic scripting language ' ASP', with all the site's data residing on a Microsoft database on our Windows 2000 (NT) server.

The site is securely and easily administered by the site owners utilising a CrownNet Internet Solutions designed password protected interface .Uploading new images to our server is also easily achieved through the administration page without the need to use an FTP client.
