The Shopify Web Design Process

It’s vital that every one of our clients understands the process undertaken when developing the perfect Shopify eCommerce platform.

We’ve made sure that our method is as easy as possible to understand by breaking down each step and guiding you through our role as web designers.



The scope of a project is always the first step. For all the parties involved, it’s essential that the work taken on is achievable and that the expecting outcomes align, so that together we can create something spectacular.



You tell us your vision for your Shopify website and what you hope to achieve from working with us. We research your target audience, industry and competitors as well as existing pain points and obstacles which need to be addressed.


Wireframe & UX

Once we understand your business, industry and target audience, we consider user experience and build a wireframe to show how your Shopify website will function.


Visual Design

We add visual elements to three wireframe folds so you can see how your website might look and gather feedback from you to adjust the design where necessary.



We build your Shopify website in keeping with your brand and utilising the wireframe and approved visual elements.


Testing & Launch

We test that the website is functional and turn it live before handing everything over to you. We offer additional packages and workshops to help you learn how to use and change your website as necessary.

Shopify Web Design Fundamentals

Shopify Experts

When it comes to the design of your Shopify website, it as essential that we understand the feel and personality of your business. Our dedicated team of Shopify experts are ready to hear all about what makes you stand out before adding their expertise to your shopfront.

Customer journey

In the world of Shopify web design, it’s pivotal to understand what type of journey you want your potential clients to take. Your website, when designed correctly, should tell a story, think of it as a virtual tour-guide for those who want to know a little more about all things you.

Custom Build

If you are looking for a Shopify web design that’s entirely original to your company, we would advise making the most of our bespoke web building service. Our Shopify design team has the skills to help you narrate your story in whatever way you wish.

Theme Build

When designing a website on Shopify, there are over 100 starting themes to choose from. Our team of experts are here to help you choose which theme best suits your goals and will use their skills to manipulate the theme into achieving whatever your goals may be.

The Process

We always suggest making sure you understand the process involved when building a Shopify designed website and that you have ticked all the necessary boxes before commencing the project. Any time wasted revisiting the initial phases can become expensive for everyone involved.

Your Users Experience

We specialise in both User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) Shopify websites. To simplify the jargon, UX is a process-based design mechanism and focuses on the way things work, whereas UI is a deliverable aesthetics-based target highlighting the way things look and feel.

Bespoke Shopify

Your eCommerce platform is your online home, your base and the hub of all your business. Would you decorate your brick and mortar shop exactly the same as one just down the road?

The truth is that when using a Shopify design theme, the likelihood of someone having an incredibly similar website is pretty high. Whereas if your theme is designed specifically for the practicality of your industry, your eCommerce will stand to all those who come along to see it.

Our team has built many bespoke Shopify websites and because of this, can offer a number of insightful and intuitive options when it comes to becoming a big-player in your sector. We are here to help throughout the process and have the skill to include custom functionality into your website, meaning that your eCommerce shop front will operate like no-one else’s.

Bespoke Shopify web design is a big move for a rapidly growing business and can increase sales overnight.

Visual Design

As a Shopify design agency, we take immense pride in each of our projects, so if the graphics for your website don’t scream your business, we wouldn’t be doing our job.

Each piece of graphic design work is carefully created by our team of experts and will have a role to play in the user journey of your potential customers. Luckily for you as a customer, we offer countless options when it comes to graphics, from custom loading screens to logo design if you don’t have one yet.

Your Competition

When designing your Shopify website, it’s important we understand who your main competitors are. The companies you compete with are a great gauge of what the customers in your industry are currently familiar with, what they like and don’t like. Knowing your potential rivals allows you to elevate your business above the rest.

Content Writing

When it comes to the content of any Shopify web design, we feel responsible for each business in the same way we do for our own. Therefore we champion providing information that is honest and never aims to mislead your potential customers.

When designing a Shopify website, the blurb included can be as vital as the layout, theme, imagery and graphics. So why not let our experts help you get the process right.

Support Packages and Marketing Strategy

As a creative design and marketing agency, our work doesn’t stop with the website we produce for your business. Our in-house team has specialists in design and marketing across the board.

This means we can provide support packages for your Shopify eCommerce site, helping with the development of the website, as well as all things marketing and strategy. From eCommerce marketing strategies to social media marketing plans, content development and copywriting.

We are a fully immersive agency, the potential of any project excites us.
