The INX Redesign
The Inxart.com Redesign
In 1980, a group of Op-ed artists got together to form INX, a creative collective bound together by a passion for producing the most powerful political illustration with the least editorial interference. Week after week they created and self-syndicated a package of topical art and distributed it to a wide variety of newspapers looking for access to elite work at reasonable prices. The service was picked up by United Feature Syndicate in 1983, and was sold and distributed by them until 2002.
In that year, INX returned to selling its own wares, but this time online. We’d like to think the work has only gotten better overtime, ‘inspired’ by the dire state of our public affairs –– the dizzying news cycle now has us offering six new images per week for art directors and editors to choose from –– but the site itself has been in need of a reboot for some time. The original design could no longer meet current web standards requiring better distribution, salability and scalability. Tom Kerr, a long-time contributor and our invaluable webmeister, has pulled together this smart and shiny new design which will definitely make viewing, searching, downloading and paying for our work much, much easier.
So take a look around, give the tires a kick and contact us below with any suggestions or concerns. Please check this new blog regularly as we report and comment on the world of political cartooning and the work of our contributors.
And return every Wednesday for our latest offerings.
