Hi, I'm Paul Forster. I have been a business owner, marketer and communicator for many years. In fact, I became a web designer and online marketer as a result of frustrating experiences I had in the past when having a web site developed for my own business. As a result of the service I got, and the product I received, and the price I paid, I resolved to learn to build cutting edge websites and to provide the kind of customer service I found lacking in Victoria.
Box 9 Design is my freelance home based Web Design and Search Engine Marketing business. Serving small and medium sized businesses in Victoria and around Vancouver Island for more than 5 years now, I have managed to retain many customers throughout the entire history of my business. Having been a small business owner myself, I understand how difficult it is to make a decision about technical issues that you may know very little about. I walk my clients through every step of the design and build process so that you feel confident that your business or product is being accurately represented online.
