About Andrew Foster (Drew)

Andew Foster in a suitI'm Graphic Designer and Web Developer based out of Calgary, Alberta, Canada who specializes in branding development. I possess a wide skill-set which includes print work, architectural glass designs and etching, sign making, memorial design and interactive media.

I have a passion for retro-themed design and I often emulate elements of that look in my personal style. Be sure and browse my portfolio to see what kind of mischief I can get myself into.

Outside of design, my interests include writing, watching and playing sports (CFL, NFL, MMA, auto racing, etc.), snowboarding, hiking, running, mountain biking, the Internet and technology - yup I'm a bit of a nerd! I've also begun to enjoy scuba diving athough I only have my open water certification right now. Hopefully over time I will be able to further my experience in this area.

Music plays a large part of my life and though I am not that great of a player, I am passionate about playing both acoustic and electric guitar as well as seeing and supporting the local live music scene in Calgary. I've previously played in a band before and have been an active member of some local music jamming groups in Calgary.

I'm part of a great Graphic Design orientated social group called Pixels and Pints (I designed their logo too). I'm also an active member of several snowboarding related user groups as well as the Calgary Wordpress Meetup Group. So if you're a fellow pixel pusher and enjoy a beer or two after a month of hard work or you're interested in playing the guitar, seeing live music in our city, snowboarding in the mountains, or something else that beats staying at home be sure and say hello. You're more than welcome to join me on an excursion.
