Our design services have helped grow some of the UK's fastest growing online retailers. Let us see how we can help you too!
We offer a full suite of eCommerce services from new website builds, design-only projects, and custom app creation to Shopify site takeovers, optimisation advice, and ongoing development support. In our expert hands, you’ll reap the benefits of our design and technical creativity, data-driven decisions, and transparent partnership approach.
We design, implement and support large-scale eCommerce websites using Shopify Plus. Having built our own ecommerce platform, bluCommerce, we’re uniquely qualified to maximise the power of Shopify Plus to get the results you need.
Beautiful, effective eCommerce design is in our DNA! Our General Assembly qualified designers capture the essence of every brand we work with. And better still, our design and optimisation teams work hand-in-hand to translate this into a personalised and user-friendly ecommerce experience.
Whether your website is brand new or requires ongoing development and expert optimisation advice, our tailored growth and support packages will be your bluprint for success. Our two packages offer:
Our in-house team stands ready to extend the features and functions of Shopify on your eCommerce site! Thanks to our rich technical heritage, we’ve got the development knowledge to solve complex client issues with our custom app service. Our creations include:
Our clients are typically ambitious brands looking to stand out from the crowd without compromising on either form or function. Determined to grow faster on Shopify Plus, their annual revenue tends to be over £1 million; if less, they’re aiming to soon reach that figure!
In terms of verticals, our clients range from fashion and beauty, homewares and gifts, to sports, food and drink. Read more about our clients here.
Unsurprisingly, the overall costs will largely depend on the complexity of the design and build. After having a quick, obligation-free chat about your project requirements, we can give you a ballpark starting price. From there, we can put together a detailed proposal with specific estimated costs for the whole project (see details on project proposals below).
The length of time from discovery to launch will greatly depend on your specific project requirements. After discussing this with you, we’ll prepare a full proposal including timescales tailored to your project.
In general, for a more complex project involving a fully bespoke theme, we typically estimate a 4-6 month timescale.
After contacting us to discuss your requirements, we’ll respond with a detailed proposal covering key areas like:
We’ll chat through the proposal on a video call so you’ll have the opportunity to meet the team and ask as many questions as you like! Naturally, you’ll need time to process the information afterwards, but we’re on hand for any follow-up queries you may have.
We certainly can! Our growth and optimisation packages - which form your bluprint for success with blubolt and Shopify Plus - are available in Gold and Platinum. Each can be tailored to your specific needs and include:
We have flexible working arrangements so our team is based at home and at our fun and friendly office, located on the world-famous Queen’s Square in Bath, Somerset. Spread over several floors of a historic Georgian terrace, it’s the perfect hub for our energetic, creative, and collaborative team. Contact us to arrange a visit!

“We’ve had nothing but positive feedback on our new Shopify Plus site! Our customers find it much more user-friendly, the layout is clearer and it’s easier to find products. The checkout method is efficient and the introduction of Shopify payments and other payment methods such as Klarna have been really popular.”
