UX & UI Development

During the lifespan of a Shopify site, there’ll be times when growing and scaling a brand leads to you outgrowing some of the apps that were essential during your formative years. Whether that’s because it isn’t capable of scaling with you, or the need for other, more important features are beginning to cause performance issues, inhousing functionality can be the answer.

What is UX and UI development?

Like many aspects of the online world, UX and UI development is part science, part artform, combining the need to look great with the need to provide the best possible experience.

Our UX and UI development service

Our team of designers, analysts and developers audit your site to establish baselines of look, feel and performance, with each bringing their own refined eye to the process.

Once we have these baselines, and in consultation with your brand, we will look to reach a concrete idea of the experience you want your customers to enjoy when visiting your site.

 

We then look for ‘quick fixes’ - aspects of your site which we know we can change to better match your branding, or to improve performance - that can be implemented prior to a more thorough process of review, consultation and implementation.

 

This can also be combined with our CRO service to make sure that changes to your site are improving not just the UX and UI, but also its ability to generate revenue.

What can UX and UI development do for your brand?

Properly implemented, good UX and UI development helps to better represent your brand online, boosts its authority and trustworthiness, makes for happy customers and, as a result, for more and repeat revenue.

Always ready to elevate your site’s UX and UI, our team of experts include designers, developers and analysts to ensure that the look and feel of your site is exactly what your customers want while also showcasing your brand as you need.

Site Speed Development

Over the last few years, Google has been nudging webmasters to improve site speed - and so far they’ve done that with the carrot of a minor boost to rankings (though they won’t say much - thanks Google - it is likely to be a ‘deciding factor if all other things are equal’), but while a ranking bump is all well and good - the positive impact it has on conversion rates is far more important.

Shopify Checkout Customisation

While Shopify sites have always been customisable to an extent, there was a time in the pretty recent past when a Shopify site was more recognisably Shopify than any particular brand. The last area where that was the case was the checkout - but, for Shopify Plus customers, it doesn’t have to be anymore! Brands can now customise their checkout to better represent their brand and better suit their needs.

CRO

Imagine you have a bricks-and-mortar store, maybe you even have a bricks-and-mortar store. Now imagine you have a Keith - Keith knocks items out of the hands of every third customer and nobody knows how to stop him. Don’t you want to get rid of Keith? That’s conversion rate optimisation.
