I've been designing and building ecommerce websites since the start of my 20+ year career. Every store has unique requirements, styles and functionality, which makes every project a delight to work on.

For the last few years, I've been using Shopify more and more and consider myself to be a Shopify expert. Despite some of its limitations, I've always enjoyed solving my clients' challenging feature requests using Shopify's built-in options.

Coming from a design and front-end development background, I like to focus on good user experience, including constantly evaluating and improving the store's page speed.

I follow Baymard Institutes UX research and refer to their user experience data on every ecommerce design project. And I also use tools like UsabilityHub and HotJar to back up my design ideas.

Designing for the web, not only involves creating a useful website but is about creating an experience that helps to engage the target audience and increase sales and conversions.

Every element of the website is analysed from a user experience perspective:- whether it's in the correct location and if the user understands how it works or where to find it and whether it makes sense.
