When our clients come to us with a new project, we use this 4-step method to ensure we get it right every time. We start with research – a detailed look at the relevant industry, competitor offerings, what’s working and what isn’t. Then we get creating, building the online solution that meets your business objectives. During delivery we work through every aspect of the project, adding or taking away where needed. And finally we analyse, looking at the impact of each project and using the results to adapt and grow.

Whatever you want to achieve – launching an online shop, taking an offline retail business online, improving your current ecommerce site or providing better service and fraud protection for your customers, we can help.
And we’re not just advisers and creators – we’ve worked in-house too, so we understand just how important this really is.
We create clever solutions that enable our clients to trade effectively online. We design and build beautiful, intuitive and professional ecommerce stores. We do all this using Magento and Venda, and we do it really well.
When customers visit your website, we want them to have a happy experience. That’s why we create websites that are designed to improve the customer journey – from the first click to the last.
We combine an innovative eye for UX design and a passion for usability with Magento, a flexible ecommerce platform that supports our ideas and allows us to meet your requirements.
Magento gives us full control of the user experience, so it can be tailored to suit your customers and their specific needs.
The platform gives us access to a range of features that enhance and improve the customer journey, so our development team can create an ecommerce solution that ticks all of your boxes.
We’re experts in creating comprehensive ecommerce solutions that work in the real world – across online, mobile, social and in-store channels using the Venda platform.

It starts with inspiration – we brainstorm, we pull the brief apart and put it back together, and we come up with some really great ideas. We finish with perspiration, where the strongest ideas are brought to life with skill, clarity and flexibility.
When we’ve painted the big picture, it’s time to get creative. We combine brand development, site architecture and eye-catching design to create a user experience that’s effortless, intuitive and rewarding.
A picture may speak a thousand words but we know the importance of great content. We create engaging, interesting and well-written copy that tells your story and informs your customers.
Structuring information is a key part of building a clever website. We’re well versed in information architecture, so your customers will always get the most important messages first.
A beautiful website is nothing if it can’t be used with ease. Our focus on functionality and user experience creates a customer journey that enables smooth, uninterrupted browsing.
The true test of an ecommerce platform is in the results. We’re driven by results, so careful analysis of features, user experience, design and content is key to every project.
We like to know exactly how successful our methods are, and we know you do too. Conversion testing allows us to tailor your platform to the habits of your customers, leading to maximised sales.
You might have the best designed site and it might be the easiest to navigate, but if your site doesn’t have any visitors, what’s the point? You need traffic to survive, and the right kind of traffic. That’s where we come in.
Merchandising is something that often gets overlooked in ecommerce – but why not put your best products forward? We use innovative design to highlight key products and services to encourage sales.
We create brilliant ecommerce solutions, but it doesn’t end there. We’re always here to help, even after project completion. We provide long-lasting technical support for all our clients, whenever they need it.
