Andrew did a great job capturing the requirements for the new website, then pushing and cajoling this project to completion. He offered creative design guidance and suggestions at appropriate times during the project life-cycle. The new website has garnered many positive compliments regarding a much clearer marketing message for Formark.
Andrew Forbes is the Online Delivery Officer for the School of Business at Bow Valley College and besides the added pleasure of working closely with him for over two years, he has also contributed to enhancing my workplace experience because of his example and enthusiasm. During this time the number of programs and students has increased substantially. Andrew’s outstanding technical and personal skills are largely responsible for the success and in addition to those skills he is also well versed in the processes of admissions, registration, and eCampus programs. All these areas require a high degree of problem solving abilities to which Andrew‘s personal attributes are a gift. He has an instinct to be innovative resulting in additional methods to present information on the external website and revising the online brochure. The promotion of the programs benefited from his attention to detail and creativity. Whatever the degree of the challenge, Andrew is consistent with his calm and pleasant demeanor. He has a natural ability in creating a positive environment.
Andrew has amazing computer skills and is always willing to help, both students and instructors alike. He is a definite asset to the Bow Valley College Instructional team and I know I would have difficulty managing without him. Andrew provides a valuable resource to our online learning platform and is a pleasure to work with. We are so fortunate to have him!
I had the pleasure of working with Andrew D. Forbes on a creative project and was impressed with his design skills and incredible work ethic. Andrew brings a passionate commitment to excellence wrapped in a calm, capable manner that inspires confidence. He’s highly collaborative and great to work with – bringing a sharp eye for detail and a deliberate, methodical thoroughness to any project he undertakes. All these qualities along with his willingness to experiment and refine resulted in a fantastic cover and interior design for my debut memoir. I would work with him again in a heartbeat – and I highly recommend him.
Did a very nice design and set up and listened to the client. Well done.
I would recommend Andrew Forbes and Re Carlson of Abtek Web Design for website building needs. They were quick and efficient and built an attractive, clean site with a platform that was easy to navigate and update. I’m very pleased with their work and the product they provided.
Andrew is a diligent co-worker managing the administration of the online programs for the business department. He demonstrates a helpful and caring attitude with students. He shows strong interpersonal skills on the phone and in person. He liaises effectively well with several program coordinators and instructors. He is able to multitask and balance several projects at a time. He is genuine, sincere and professional.
Over the Christmas holidays Andrew helped me implement the Genesis framework and theme for my ShiftSelling.com website that is self-hosted on WP Engine. He was easy to work with, responsive in making changes suggested by my readers once the updated site went live, and was quick to learn the nuances of my hosting company’s backup and website staging process.
Andrew was my client for doing SEO work for one of his client’s website. I enjoyed working with him. His WordPress and communication skills are very good. I look forward to do more projects with him.
Website: Denture Clinic
Holt Denture Clinic
Holt Denture Clinic needed a new website and logo as the company shifted to denture services. Curtis Ince from ColourShape.com was brought in to design the logo. I teamed up with Re Carlson from Abtek.ca and worked with Tommy Holt, the Office Manager, repurposing content from an existing brochure and developing a new clean responsive design to make it easy to find their clinic on the web.
Website: Online Music Magazine Company
The Portal Magazine
The Portal Magazine was looking for a new website developer to make it easy to update their website. Re Carlson from Abtek.ca and I worked with Shannon Ambrose and Kai Keiferle, migrating an existing Joomla database into WordPress, and developing a new clean responsive design to better present their online music magazine and the other music-related initiatives of the company.
