Andrew Brundle website design Bangkok Thailand
Andrew Brundle website design is the worst website designer!! If you're reading this before you sent him any money, consider yourself lucky! I recently hired him to create a website, well it was over 8 months ago for a site that he promised would be complete in 2 months!! After a nice conversation on the phone and looking for reviews online (I found none) I decided to hire him, HUGE mistake hiring Andrew Brundle. Upon payment he said he would get started immediately. We agreed on 3 basic parts; website design, shopping cart, and a database for a fixed price, I did not negotiate as I thought the price seemed reasonable (read more, wasn't very reasonable after all). After about a week to 10 days I sent him a message to see how he was coming along, since he hadn't sent me any info on his progress. I got a curt message back that he was working with a previous client and would be busy thru the weekend. OK no biggie, I sent another message early the next week, reply this time?? A rude message that he was not going to finish for another 2 weeks!! OK, no big deal so long as it's done on time, I thought... What a mistake! Andrew created excuse after excuse why he wasn't able to work on my site. I literally got every excuse in the book, except the dog ate my homework! Here's my favorite excuses: "I got injured last night playing football and will be taking several days off", "I'm taking a holiday", "I had to find a new place to live", and my personal favorite "the problem is your website is ***". Ah excuse me, you created it!! What a *** after 3+ months I finally get a few photoshop mock-ups that he literally spent 20 minutes on, then tells me it's "***". How do I put this gently... It's your fu*king design, YOU, Andrew Brundle created it!!! What an ***, it only got worse... He was supposed to create multiple page designs that I could choose from, he never did it. I finally had to just tell him, make it look like this sample site so we could move forward, this is about 4 months into it. Meanwhile during this process, I check his own website several times, interestingly he had plenty of time to update his own site, and I saw some of the stuff he was working on while not working on my site... There's more! After 6 months he created many of the pages and the basic shopping cart. Then he tells me that he won't complete the database as he "ran out of money"... WHAT?? How do you "run out of money" for a fixed price job?? You quoted it!! It's not my fault you can't manage your time. You, Andrew Brundle, set the price and I paid. Now do your part. Nope, to bad, he refused to do it... Bottom line with this guy is a *** and a liar. He claims to be a "complete" website designer that can do everything. He claims to be able to do a complete shopping cart integration, but in reality he can only set up a link to PayPal. In dealing with him, I realized he had no clue about creating a merchant account, he's never actually created one. He told me that "no one is going to give you their billing info", really?? Nearly every website on the planet uses a merchant account. He would tell me constantly that "you don't need that" in my site. Actually I do, it's my website and I do need it. After explaining over and over he would then do what I originally asked. He'll do the minimum amount of work required to finish the job, and then tell you to pay immediately even though he's not done with the site. Yes, you read that right. He's not done with the site, but you need to pay now. After 6 months, no apology for being 4 months late, site not finished, but pay me now. Here's his excuse; "I only have 100MB of space on my server, I need to get your site off it ASAP", send me the final payment and I'll upload to your domain and complete the final touches. I foolishly paid. After I paid it was basically "you paid for the final site, any rework I'll have to charge you for a redesign", but I was trying to help you and get it off your small server... How about this, you pay an additional $1 per month for a better hosting service!! Really, I pay $8 per month and have unlimited storage! Even hosting that costs $5 per month will get you 5-10GB!! Just another lie to get paid and tell you to *** off. Some of the lies:Please bear with me for another 2 or 3 days, and then we'll make a blast on your site! (Nov 30, 2012)OK - re: the schedule for your site. You said that a January completion date is fine. This is a 100% definite on my part. To be honest, completing the whole thing this month will be hard. (Dec 12, 2012)I'm relaxing this week. I'll get back to you again before January 2nd. (Dec 28, 2012)No communication until (Jan 10, 2012)Good news! I'm almost completely up to date. By Wednesday I will have finished everything. After this, I'll work exclusively on your stuff. (Jan 14, 2012)Yes -- doing your PSDs now. Could you please re-send me your phone number. In order to finish this site asap, it'd be good to chat often on the phone. (Feb 10, 2013)I need to upload an updated version of your site. I'll do that today or tomorrow. (Mar 5, 2013)I'll aim to get it online by Wednesday at the latest. (Mar 11, 2013)Just re-sized those home page photos. (Mar 27, 2013)The cart is about 50% done. More tomorrow. (Apr 1, 2013)Nothing until 4/23...Please play around with the cart. Add different items and experiment with different quantities. (Apr 23, 2013) I could go on and on about lies and rudeness from this guy, just stay away!!
