Peak Ed Designs put together a website and promotional materials for an annual networking event I had put on. I would wholeheartedly recommend them, as their work product was polished and professional. Frankly, they made the entire process easier than I had thought it would be. The results really did the talking though; attendance was up nearly 2x year-over-year.

I have worked with Andrew on a number of projects over the years and have always had a top-notch experience. Andrew is positive, a master communicator and outcome driven. When I was hired by an agency, I passed off several of my own clients to Andrew with the utmost confidence that they would be taken care of. I would highly recommend Peak Ed Designs and the team that Andrew has built. You won’t be disappointed!

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.

Website Care Plans
WordPress websites are no longer a “set and forget” part of your business. Dated websites repel customers and descend search engine rankings, while insecure sites keep people awake at night. For a website to truly function, it must be up to date and secure, which is why Peak Ed Designs offers comprehensive maintenance and security services. Your website is a crucial part of your business and therefore requires extra care to make sure it continues to perform its functions.
Our Care Plans are more than just maintenance. It's peace of mind for you and your business. Let us evaluate your needs and suggest a Peace of Mind Website Care Plan that will improve your communications and your bottom line!
Working with Andrew has been such a smooth and seamless process – he was able to capture the vision of our group’s website, building it from scratch with little direction. Over the last 5+ years, the ongoing maintenance has been hassle-free. I would highly recommend checking out Andrew and Peak Ed Designs for any website needs.
