What We Do
At Peak Ed Designs, we’re committed to education, from our delivering of training materials and online course creation services, to our custom WordPress solutions and training business owners to effectively and efficiently use their websites. We offer more than just a web presence – we offer a clear path to your business goals.
Personalized WordPress Solutions
A one-size fits all approach won’t work for your unique business. At Peak Ed Designs, we walk you through a discovery process to clarify your mission and goals of the website. Then, once we’ve discovered your business needs and who your ideal clients are, we design simple, web-based solutions to draw in your target market and clearly communicate the value of your business. But maintaining a great web presence doesn’t stop there, and neither do we. We offer online peace of mind with up-to-date maintenance and security for your website so you can focus on what you do best – your business.
The process was seamless, working with Andrew and the copy writer was a pleasant and easy process. Any requested changes or updates are made promptly and without error. I would highly recommend Peak Ed Designs to anyone looking to get their website updated or created as pricing is extremely fair and the final products is unique, well functioning and well designed.
– Amber Harrison, Adminstrator, CADS Calgary
I hired Andrew to design a website for my Psychology practice. It was easy to work with him and his associate, who did great work on the copy writing. Andrew is very responsive, and both his copywriter and himself took time to understand what was important for me in terms of branding and messaging, which has clearly reached the demographics and presenting issues I specialize in. Peak Ed Designs were able to skillfully transform my ideas into a coherent vision and a solid product, which I’ve been very happy with. Peak Ed Designs has helped to push my practice forward, filling my clinic with the clientele I most enjoy working with. I could not have asked for a better experience overall, and would strongly recommend Andrew and Peak Ed Designs to anyone looking for web design services and associated maintenance after the product delivery.

With our website revamp we found that Andrew was very reliable, quick to respond, and he exceeded our expectations and timelines. His weekly update was very effective. We appreciate him paying attention to the details and being clear in his communication. His adaptability to the change scope and needs was refreshing and we would highly recommend him to those looking to take their website to the next level or have any intentions of creating a lead-generating website.
– Kyle Kalloo – CEO & Business Coach, Change My Business Coaching
I’ve had several web pages designed for me over the last decade and I have to say that the job that was performed for us by Andrew and Jonathan was far and away the best job of all of them and the least difficult for us. Professional, creative, and highly responsive are the first adjectives that come to mind. I recommend Peak Ed Designs unconditionally.
– Greg Lefsrud – Business Development, Nuvo Retail Group
Andrew was extremely patient and kind. His knowledge of this industry was apparent with every suggestion he made at each step of the process. He is professional and approachable and he made this entire experience fun.

Online Course Creation
Traditional brick and mortar courses can be inaccessible and expensive to both host and attend. Online courses not only streamline your teaching practice but allow you to reach new students around the world. Peak Ed Designs works with you to create a course free of traditional classroom learning roadblocks for a solution that’s better for your students and for you. Following the ADDIE model, we will consult with your stakeholders to conduct learning needs analysis for an identified target audience, complete a detail level design document to address knowledge and/or performance gaps, and develop effective training materials and learning activities with authentic assessments to promote work-ready skills on the learning management system of your choice.
Andrew developed the curriculum for the six Microsoft Office courses which we deliver to our learners both face to face and online. The reason we worked with Andrew was because of his attention to detail and his willingness to go above and beyond for the client. We continue to use Andrew for various curriculum projects.
– Charlotte Kudadirgwa – Programming Officer, Bow Valley College
Andrew designed all of the MS Office courses for my program at Bow Valley College. His innate attention to detail is impeccable. Each course is interactive among the student and instructor, he utilized lynda.com to make the course more current. He integrated discussion questions, to allow students/instructor to create a community in D2L. The assessments align with the learning outcomes for students to encompass a high cognitive domain level. Overall, I highly recommend Andrew with his high level of expertise, education and his friendliness.

I really enjoyed IBM Cloud Essentials course. Our instructor, Andrew Forbes, was always optimistic and was always ready to help with any task. I have felt comfortable to ask any questions. Thanks to the calm and supportive manner of Andrew’s teaching we had a very positive environment in the class and I was looking forward for each day of this course.
