What our happy clients say about us


Why our clients love Craft CMS

Shameful Plug

We work with start-up businesses through to global organisations.

The answers to your questions.

Timelines depend on the spec of the website project, but here are some guidelines...

  • Shopify projects usually take around four weeks.
  • Craft CMS projects usually take a minimum of five weeks.
  • Craft Commerce projects usually take a minimum of eight weeks.

We work with ambitious start-up businesses and large global organisations such as Blackberry, NHS, and L'Occitane so we can tailor our services to suit your needs.

Yeah not a problem, we’ll take a look at your current website and outline what we think needs improving. This gives you the option to redesign your current site or start from scratch.

Yep! Here at Shape, we work with companies all over the world. We use Slack, Zoom, Skype, and many other online applications that allow us to communicate seamlessly throughout a project from start to finish so we can help you anywhere in the world.

We certainly do, we offer what’s called Shape Support to help you with all of your website needs, this is completely optional and all of our websites come built on Craft CMS meaning you can add, edit and update every part of your website yourself.

Every website we design and build comes compatible with any screen size. More and more people access the web on smaller devices such as phones and tablets, so we understand the importance of a responsive website.

Unfortunately, we don't have set project prices. Every brief we work on has different requirements that alter the spec of the job. So, once we've received the brief, we can give you an indication of the cost and timescale. If you need a hand with your brief, we wrote an article on how to create a killer web design brief.

Our mindset is that we want to work with clients of the same vision. If you want to improve your brand online and understand the way we work (and the discussions are of mutual understanding) then we want to work with you. In terms of budget, the easiest way to find out if a project is possible is to let us know what your budget is. That way we can advise the best way of spending your money. We wrote this article about the importance of a website budget a while back that is still relevant.
