About Us
Who we are
We're a personal & proactive Shopify Plus agency that designs, builds & optimises beautiful solutions to help your brand grow faster.
We've set the pace for eCommerce agencies since launching in 2006.

Founded in historic Bath, over the last 15 years, we’ve propelled our diverse range of clients to impressive new heights with beautiful design and creative, high-performing eCommerce solutions. With our own platform, bluCommerce, great British brands like Seasalt and Hush enjoyed high growth and even set industry standards. For example, Which? Magazine readers ranked Seasalt’s website second in the UK for the best online shopping experience in 2018.

And we're raising the bar for ambitious brands on Shopify Plus.

We’re the quickest agency ever to achieve Shopify Plus Partner status! Now working exclusively on Shopify, we continue to blaze a trail with sophisticated websites and data-driven CRO for brands like Bella Freud, Pipers Farm, teapigs, Never Fully Dressed, and Rave Coffee. We’re also known for solving unique client problems with game-changing custom solutions like our Age Verifier, Bundle Builder, Sample Product Selector and Date & Delivery Selector.
