I'm pretty sure you already know about FRAMED* or have heard about its elegant and beautiful way to bring digital art into the everyday. It was created in 2012 by FRM which is founded by Yugo Nakamura, recognised as one of the world’s most innovative web and interactive designers, and by William Lai whose work spans across product design and user experience, with a focus on physical products combined with the collaborative nature of the web.
After two years they have developed FRAMED* 2.0 which it won't be just a display to showcase digital art but a platform, a community hub and a marketplace where artists will have the opportunity to publish and sell their work.
Behind of FRAMED* 2.0 there are major concerns about how digital art could spread itself around the Internet and into different artistic networks to be seen and collected through this beautifully designed canvas, and I believe that the right people is working on, as you may know Yugo Nakamura besides to be an award-winning Japanese software artist is the creator of FFFOUND!, yes the website and social image bookmarking service you used to use or still do to pick up some fresh visual inspiration, and that has been a great reference as a collectible and sharable based image platform and had an important impact about the way we discovered images online today. I highly recommend to read a recent conversation Filip Visnjic from CreativeApplications.Net had with William Lai about this, read here.
FRM started yesterday a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds in order to start this project and be able to commercialise this product if they reach the budget goal. They are offering nice offers for supporting this project from the lowest prices. To see that in one day they have duplicated the goal, it's a great response from the digital art community and everyone who believes on it. You also can support them at http://kck.st/UmrMrw , see more details and specifications about FRAMED* 2.0 and all the digital formats it supports into the post.
