From the initial meeting all the way to launch Rax was thorough, clear and did not miss a beat. The guys at the Hope Factory designed the site exactly the way we asked for. They went above and beyond to help have a smooth migration. We would like to thank Rax and the team at Hope Factory for their great job! Highly recommend it!

Our Shopify Design process
1. Project Planning
To kick-off, we define the key steps in the Shopify design process for your store and gather all the right information about your brand and audience. That way, everyone knows what’s needed and what to expect from day one.
2. Design Workshop
We will work closely with you to ensure clarity of purpose and creative vision. The design workshop will allow us to dive deeper into the requirements of the project, the ‘wish list’, desired outcomes and inspirational reference sites. Understanding the big picture allows us to get cracking on our core objective; creating a cutting-edge high converting design.
3. Strategy & Concept
The next step is getting the particulars of the project down on paper. In the concept stage we explore the design intent, the desired aesthetics, conversion optimisation and user experience for the target audience. Research is done, a creative strategy is devised, inspiration is collated and concepts are designed.
4. Design Review
This is the moment when the strategy and design concept comes to life. We bring to you our vision for your online store, via mockups, typographic suggestions (if required), along with anything else we believe will allow you to see, feel and experience the unique creative vision for the project.
5. Design Creation & Delivery
Once you have approved the proposed design, we move on to producing the elements for ‘cutting’ into the Shopify theme framework. Final artwork is created to the specifics of digital formats. Final files are sent to the development team and are supplied to you. We then 'cut' the designs into the theme and develop/test for different device requirements.
6. Additional services
We’ll connect you with our network of trusted partners to help you create the best quality content for your ecommerce: branding, professional photography and copywriting (blog posts, case study writing).

Reviews from Previous Shopify Stores Designs
I engaged The Hope Factory to upgrade our web store and increase our web presence. The work done was of an excellent standard and I couldn't be happier with the results. I would highly recommend using The Hope Factory for any online work required. We will definitely be using them again in the near future for Birkenstock Hahndorf.
Phil, Birkenstock Hahndorf
We are so glad that we were recommended to use The Hope Factory to design and implement our new website. Our development manager Gati actually made the project enjoyable, all of the milestones were able to be achieved in the given timeframes. The results have been dramatic and within the first two weeks we have had a 40% increase in our online sales.
Kylie, Cake Decorating Central
We worked with The Hope Factory to move our website from the NETO platform across to Shopify Plus. The process was very involved and with the integration of our POS adding an additional element we wanted to make sure we had an experienced team to lead the move. The Hope Factory team went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the end result. I would highly recommend The Hope Factory to any business.
Travis Dunlop, Coco & Lola
These guys are great! Raksha from the Hope Factory was an absolute star to work with and the site has gone live seamlessly and beautifully. 5 stars!
Renae James, Papinelle Sleepwear
From the start to the end, I worked with an amazing team that were helpful, professional and provided guidance and support every step of the way which helped get through what seemed like a daunting process to begin with. The team was very accomodating to any request that I had and I had confidence in their ability to deliver on my goals and objectives. Can't say anything but positive praise for the team
Zlata Relin, Buckets and Spades
Very helpful and accommodating throughout the process. Easiest web development we have had.
