This weeks’ website – Goteborgkonst.com
Let’s continue withÂ goteborgkonst.com, on “This week’s website”. “Göteborgs konst” is a website where you can read about or look at picture of the public art located in Gothenburg.
Tell us more about yourself and what you do?
My name is Jan Dahlqvist and I’ve been working with art in Gothenburg since about 17 years back. I’m a trained artist and have my own business as a graphic designer at the side of my half-time employment at Gothenburgs Art/Culture administration. I’ve been the web editor since we published our site in 2013 and besides that I’m working with our databases, photo documentation and lots more.
Tell us shortly what the website is about.
Our site attracts different types of people, foremost citizens and visitors in Gothenburg that want to learn more about the art located in the city. We have a “sculpture map”, that we update successively, with pictures and content about a great amount of public art. Yearly, we present purchases of art to our collection and offers the possibility to the public to ask related questions. We also offer the information to businesses and administrations in Gothenburg and offer artists to notify their interest for artistic assignments.
How did you get the idea to create a website about the art in Gothenburg?
In 2004 I had created a site that presented some of Gothenburgs sculptures. When that site needed a facelift in about the same time as our business was growing, we felt that it was time to find our own platform to be able to give out information about our work in a good and informative way. We were also working in print, where we made folders with content and pictures, we simply felt that we could make that work online as well.
Why did you put your website at Binero?
We chose Binero to host our website because other businesses in the administrations alreadyÂ were your customers. They were very satisfied with your services and recommended us to use you.
How is your website built?
It is built in wordpress by an external consultant from our thoughts and likings.
What tips do you have those who have or are planning on starting their website at Binero?
It is called “Content is King” and I can agree with that to a 100%. Focus on the content and work with it. Try to create such a logical and good structure as possible.
We thank Jan and goteborgkonst.com for the interview and hope that it gave you readers some inspiration and valuable tips!
