Crystal Spotlight offer much more than well designed, cutting edge websites. They also understand the marketing behind a successful website in the entertainment world. From relevant content to responsive designs catering for the myriad of devices out there now through to harnessing the power of social media. And all this with simple content management to boot!

A visit to StevenWilsonHQ.com is something I highly recommend, by the way. Completely unsurprisingly, the site boasts a thoroughly modern, cutting-edge graphic design, an easily navigable overview of where Wilson’s been and where he’s going, and a slew of assorted other goodies

MEET OUR FOUNDERS

Rob Skarin

Rob has been passionate about music ever since the day his father played Rush’s ‘Moving Pictures’ to him in the car at a very early age.

Rob founded Crystal Spotlight in late 2012, after using his web development and design skills to build a number of successful progressive rock fan sites. This activity led to Rob being approached by Steven Wilson to create a new online presence for his solo career and the rest, as they say, is history!

His drive, commitment and passion for music shines through in every aspect of his work and Rob is one of the lucky ones in life who has managed to forge a career that combines his skills, talents and passion. Pretty cool, actually!

Rob’s favourite album of all time is ‘Amused To Death’ by Roger Waters.
