FAVORITE QUOTE "There is no greater purpose than service to others" Peaceful WarriorForest Williams started Envision Web Development in 2004 after working as a sales rep for several years for a large multinational Internet company. Seeing a gap in the way customer service was handled, Forest felt he could bring together a high level of web creativity coupled with exceptional customer service. Envision Web Development was born. With the creation and success of his for profit business Forest, who always enjoyed hands on volunteer work, saw a great need in the Not For Profit (NFP) industry for high level graphic design at an affordable price. FREE! Knowing the razor thin margins NFP work within, he decided to donate his company's time to the pursuits of aiding NFP's in putting forth a professional face to both the online and print mediums. In the 3 years since the formation of Free Charity Design, he has help many local and national NFP organizations with his companies design skills. He looks forward to many years of "helping those who help others." www.envisionwebdevelopment.com
