Invite/Apply

There are two ways to join NPIECE. Either you apply for an invitation or get invited by a member.

The application/invitation process exists to ensure the site grows without the need of curational intervention thus possibly from within itself.

We want to keep the platform focussed on artists only and this is the nicest way we came up with.

Invitations are handed out to members on a regular basis.

Universal Adaptive style

Art is not just content - it needs sensitive, context-aware design.

Layout and typography isn't interferring with your works but providing a solid, clean and organized yet standarized structure.

NPIECE allows you to concentrate on your works and doesn't seduce you into continously reinventing your site's design.

To keep things invidual and for a little bit of fun, we support so called adaptive styling.

This is basically a technique which detects most prominent colors of the work you've put first and adjusts colors of i.e. links accordingly.

Any Media

Artists create work using various media. Sometimes an image is not always the perfect fit for representing a work.

PDF, audio, video and image in a wide range of formats are supported by default.

You aren't making any concessions to quality - so do we.

Upload original files without the need of shrinking them first, potentially decreasing quality. We support TIFFs and have liberal space qutoas.

Resizing and transcoding is dealt with for you. As soon a file gets uploaded, versions are automatically generated.

Our resizing processes are fine tuned for artistical work and deliver crisp lines and great colors.
