Were not your average web design company. Get to know the story and the people behind Forge and Smith.

We approach every project with a passion for the details. By emphasizing careful planning before design we strive to bring out the best possible website experience for your audience. Weve honed our process over the years whittling a massive undertaking down to straightforward steps that allow your team to deliver the right feedback at the right time.

Our principal and lead strategist Shawn Johnston gets asked all the time ’Why Forge and Smith?’ Shawn grew up surrounded by craftspeople and learned from a young age to value the importance of honesty quality and dependability. When Shawn started a web design agency in 2011 he knew he had an opportunity to work his craftsman ideals into the foundation of his business.

Forge and Smith harkens to medieval blacksmith guilds and a time when your word was your bond. Our team works hard to evoke that same rock-solid reliable relationship with our clients while constantly reshaping our process and skills to remain steadfastly committed to forging great work.

Were a crack squad of savvy motivated websmiths fixing the Internet one website at a time. We can often be found crafting killer strategies and code in our pyjamas from remote locations around the Greater Vancouver area.

A 22 year survivor of the design industry Shawn is the Founder and Principal of Forge and Smith. He plays a variety of roles from client rep to sales person project manager to chief bottle washer.

Troy coins himself a jack-of-all-trades particularly when it comes managing all the parts that make up a website. When hes not rocking WordPress sites hes waxing his board and expanding his small business of crafting Puka shell necklaces.

Oscar is a versatile and experienced digital project manager which makes sense since his favourite thing to do is watch The Flash with his sons. When hes not helping our clients get to the finish line hes training and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions. Watch out!

With backgrounds in journalism computer forensics and public libraries Pam wound up with the ideal combination of curiosity and communication skills for a digital strategist. Shes a master of content writing particularly deep articles that boost SEO. Her Instagram feed is equal parts horses waffles and drag queens.

Matt is our design slayer who crafts user-friendly interfaces that command peoples attention. His ability to meld colours typography and style allows sites to shine and brands to pop leaving a memorable impression.

Sean is a developer living in beautiful Pemberton. When he gets away from the keyboard he can be found mountain biking skiing and exploring the BC wilderness. His passion for computers is only eclipsed by his love of the outdoors.

Colin loves working with WordPress and creating intuitive and captivating user interfaces. When not working youll likely find him playing his guitar hiking or reading a good book.

Braeden is a technical SEO amp; paid strategist with a love of creating measurable strategy and finding insights. When not buried deep in a spreadsheet you can find him at the gym learning something new or playing drums in the forest.

A film minor with a theatre major in college Meg has a true love of stories and how we tell them. When shes not crafting peoples excited thoughts into clear visions and integrating them into WordPress shes probably rollerskating on the seawall or walking her dog along Sunshine Coast beaches.

Lizzie is a UI/UX designer with a diverse background in design digital marketing and communications. When shes not designing youll likely find her at the beach or in the trees always equipped with coffee and a camera.

Gabriel is from Brazil and he has been an athlete since a young age. He was a tennis competitor until graduating in college D1 as a student athlete while majoring in Business Administration. If you dont see him in front of the screen coding or playing games he is probably outdoors living the athlete lifestyle.

Chloe is a very curious person which is reflected in her professional background and her personal life. She studied literature communications and business before enrolling in the training that led her to become a web developer. When not working she loves to saw paint dance salsa learn a new language or drive fast cars. The world is full of wonders! And Chloe finds it hard to resist the temptation to go out and explore.
