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.
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 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.
Working with Andrew was a gratifying experience. There were no hassles or delays. It was a “get er done” attitude. Aims to please the customer by listening to them, and giving them what they want. Andrew also created a new look that made our web page feel relevant. Great job here.
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 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!
Andrew was quick, responsive, easy to work with and good at explaining how to use the new website. I would highly recommend using his services, we are very happy with our clean, modern, welcoming new website!

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.
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.
Website: Singer/Songwriter, Producer & Guitarist
Paul Sabu needed a redesign of his website to modernize the look and feel and make it mobile responsive. I worked with the musician, reviewing the existing content and developed a new responsive design using WordPress to better reflect him as an artist and how he can help and interact with fans, and people in general.
Website: Religious Institution
Scarboro United Church
Scarboro United Church needed a new redesign of their website. After a needs assessment was sent out to their board and key stakeholders to get everyone on board, I worked with Laura Maloney, the Church Administration Manager, reviewing, consolidated, and prioritizing content from the previous website and developing a new modern responsive design, providing a better website experience.
