Numerous people were telling me stories of their web designer who had gone missing, wasn’t willing to help them update their website, was charging them outrageous amounts of money for a low quality product, was holding onto the web files as a leverage and the list goes on.
I was ready to offer the “real” professional service that is expected today from a web designer: knowledgeable, great listener, courteous, respectful, professional, open-minded and most of all able to turn technical concepts into simple language the client can understand!
I had the opportunity to work as a “Creative/Trainer” in an Apple Store, and discovered that a number of visitors expressed a need to have a personal Apple Trainer help them in the comfort of their home or office.
Apple products are life-changing as they enable us to create freely and achieve dreams we never thought were possible before.
But how do people have more fun and are more productive if they don’t know how to use them?
Offering One-to-One services at home and Group Training in great locations has proven to be very beneficial for numerous people.
- provide small and medium businesses with professional websites that are aesthetically beautiful, functional and easy to use and maintain
- provide a complete web solution including but not limited to web design, graphic design, professional videos and photos, marketing and music
- provide individuals and businesses with state-of-the-art Personal Training on Apple technology
Working with Aurelien was a pleasure. To pick only three attributes doesn’t fully describe the service he provides.
From the beginning concept of what we were looking for right through to the final product, Aurelien was on target and exceeded our expectations and needs.
His timeliness, efficiency and creativity made the project effortless. Aurelien takes the time to understand all aspects of the client.
His product and service is a great display of passion and knowledge.
Here’s what our clients say that makes us blush…
We had Aurelien Jondeau from “Creative Elements by Aurelien” come to our home to set up some electronic issues that we were unable to do ourselves. Aurelien is a great listener, did all the required tasks and like the terrific teacher that he is, he reviewed what he had done, I took notes on all the steps and he verified/corrected them, and he left us a very happy pair. We can now use our TV as we had planned, use the ‘Apple TV’ and run a slide show from both the Mac and PC computers through the TV or the iPhone. The truth is that we are not that tecky even though we have a lot of tecky stuff around, however, with Aurelien’s direction, everything works and it is all wonderful. BTW, did you know that you can use your iPhone as a lazer when showing slide shows on the TV? Very cool!
Aurelien was referred to me by a close friend. He is professional and knowledgeable about the online world. Aurelien was patient in answering all my questions and took the time to show me exactly what he was doing behind the scenes on my website enabling me to do it on my own. I always learn something new when we work together.
Aurelien is a superb trainer in the creative use of ipad. His vast knowledge of Apple programmes and his remarkable teaching ability are outstanding. He is well organized, personable and brilliant in his suggestions,enthusiasm and content review.
My husband found Aurelien after googling for Apple training to help us understand and effectively use all of our products, and specifically clean-up the mess we’d made of all of our music and photos. When I was able to play a song sung by my father (long since deceased) on my iPhone and share with people, that was the moment it become clear that what Aurelien provides goes far beyond technology training. I then continued working with him for support in developing my new business, and have made many processes more efficient and professional. As a “mature” couple who’ve stumbled our way through the world of computerized-everything, it’s great to know there’s someone out there that can patiently and effectively answer all of our questions. We have a common tagline in our house now – “just ask Aurelien”!
The use of Creative Elements by Aurelien, to help us create a new logo for our company along with refine our web presence, was a great success. Aurelien took the time to: really understand our business; our successes; the keys to which we believe make us unique; along with direction we are moving towards. His creative ideas helped us establish a solid foundation for the communication and advertising needs of our business, not only with the refinement of our logo and website, but the integration with other social media channels like LinkedIn. Outside of the technical expertise Aurelien brings to the table, he is also very scope, schedule and cost focused allowing us to stay on task, and on track, for the delivery of this project. With the success of this project, we’ve made the easy decision to engage Creative Elements for additional services and support. We are truly happy with what he delivered and where we are going.
After some extensive travelling, and having taken some wonderful photos we wanted to make into books, we called upon Aurelien, from Creative Elements, to teach us how to use Aperture. His expertise, and his patience with us, during our one-on-one appointments was so appreciated. We went off topic several times to ask questions and he was happy to assist us in all areas, ie: organizing our pictures in iphoto, backing up our Macs, tips on how to layout a book, how to fine tune our photos in Aperture and the list goes on. We ended up with a beautiful book from our Africa trip that Aurelien sat with us and helped lay out. Learning in the comfort of our own home and having Aurelien there was excellent. His expertise and calm demeanour is invaluable…… I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I had been looking for somebody to create a new website for quite some time, but most people were to “techie” for me and I could not relate to them. When I met Aurelien I right away sensed that he had a holistic approach and had an understanding of the service industry. I am very happy with my website. It is alive and vibrant. I love my new logo and I especially appreciated the process of creating the new logo together with Aurelien, the graphic artist, my husband Willem and myself. I appreciate Aurelien’s patience during the creative process because I needed time to become crystal clear what I wanted. Thank you.
Aurelien is a highly-focussed professional who delivers superb customer service. He went beyond my expectations with a technical challenge that I had and I highly recommend him to assist any person or organization in need of sharp, fast, reliable results. Thank you Aurelien.
Aurelien has taken a homemade, amateur video and transformed it into a video that is interesting and easy to watch. He really listens to what you, the customer, would like to portray to your audience and also offers new ideas and advice. A creative, talented and intuitive young man! Thank you Aurelien for making my business more accessible!
We have recently opened a guest house. We knew that the success of our project depended mainly on the quality of the website. Calling upon Aurelien’s skills and professionalism through his company “Creative Elements”, we haven’t been disappointed. The website is performing really well, it is praised and loved by our guests who find it attractive, beautiful and easy to use. Thank you for your professionalism and your availability that contributed to a very good start of our project.
