Rune Westberg is a Danish born songwriter/producer living and working in Los Angeles. One might expect to describe Rune as the hardest working man in the music business, but that would be wrong. Rune is an intensely focused artist who knows exactly what he wants to do. Over his long career he has learned to move “work” out of the way so that he can make amazing things happen with laser focus.
Our own Rob Lewis met Rune through mutual friends and discovered for the first time a person who needed a website, but wasn’t trying to sell anybody anything.
It’s a refreshing change from the normal necessity to produce a “sticky” website. Rune simply needed his own place to get his facts accurately listed on the Web and provide a means for contact (just in case.) -Rob Lewis
As an accomplished songwriter, producer, engineer, mixer and talented guitar player with his own home studio, Rune has no trouble connecting with people that inspire him and wish to collaborate with him on great work. So his website didn’t need to promote his image, list a bunch of social media links, or espouse the merits of his work. He has reached a point in his career that many of us aspire for, and that is the point where his work speaks for itself (no songwriting pun intended).
Rune’s site needed to accurately showcase many years worth of work while being easy to navigate and easy for Rune to update. Rune was interested in a clean design and almost no images aside from the album art. So after some experimentation we found that WordPress would be the best tool for the job, with the help of a dark theme from custom designers.
There was no need for music players or other media, so we installed the standard plugins that allow us to keep WordPress running well and with a little time spent with the client reviewing content creation, we were off and running. A cool project.
