As with a lot of other SaaS products, Shopify has a huge amount of options on off-the-shelf themes to start with, what this means to you as the client, is that our work of building out your website and design will be faster and quicker to launch as we’ll be starting with a pre-made fully designed theme.

Not only does hshopify allow for a quick start eCommerce store, it also allows for easy set-up of Point of Sale (POS) for in-store retail and pop-up shops – all linked to your ecommerce store. It also allows for easy integration with social channels and Marketplaces like Amazon and Ebay to enable you to get your products viewed by a larger audience quickly.

Shopify has a built in blog tool so you can quickly write and publish content directly into your website. Alongside this you also have easy to use search engine optimisation (SEO) tools to make sure your website can be found and read easily by Google. In addition Shopify has simple plugins for Email marketing and for using Google Ads and Facebook Ads linked to your store.

For most business owners the most important part of your day is being able to access sales and customer data easily. Shopify’s intuitive UX across its admin panel allow you to check orders, manage stock, tag customers and check payments through the easily navigable admin panel.
You can also fulfil multiple orders at once with a single click and save time with unified inventory that stays accurate across all your sales channels.
We create beautiful shopping experiences through clear strategy, design & UX
Led by our Managing Director, Mark Purdy, our discovery workshops are based on his tried and tested method of covering all angles of a business proposition. For any full Design and Build project we do, we always include at least one Discovery and Strategy session in the project plan. This often raises many conversations about features and functions that maybe weren’t thought about in the original brief. We also run these workshops as standalone sessions for business owners who have spent a little too long ‘in’ their business and want a fresh independent expert to analyse and drive a more exploratory review
User Stories & Personas
Before we. Start any design we will walk you through identifying and collating all of your types of customers in order to group them into what we call ‘personas’. This process identifies up to 5 different customer journeys through your business and what those customers need in order to convert successfully. This process is critical when scoping out new features as it is something to revert back to and ask yourself the question – ‘which of my customer persona challenges does this solve?. It also allows us to get a feel for who we are designing the site for; what do they like? What do they need? How will they react to different content? All of this is critical to a successful design.
Wireframing & Prototyping
For most projects we start off with wireframing in order to agree information hierarchy without the distraction of colours / images / fonts and logos. This is a quick process and allows you to focus your attention on what are the most important messages throughout your website or app. We use Invision for sharing and collating feedback and can often make amendments immediately for screen share sessions to view options. The wireframing process also allows our development team to get an early start on build as the overall structure will be signed off before design begins.
Design, UX & UI
Creative isn’t just visuals like it used to be (in the days of print and media). A critical element of the creative process now involves the micro interactions that happen. Does a button animate when hovered over? Do the images move as a user scrolls down a page? How will a page react if a user shrinks the window? There are hundreds of these questions we have to ask ourselves when preparing designs for the development team, again reiterating the importance of create and tech, design and development working together throughout a project. We love design, from Logos to fonts and Photography to CTA’s, everything needs to work harmoniously for a seamless user experience.
