Intuitive, user-centric, custom websites for clients of all sizes around the world
We're not just eCommerce design agency - we've also got a long, successful record in designing, developing and launching custom websites for clients all over the world. Our focus is on the exceptional - putting out first-class digital products that turn prospective clients into champions.
Research & strategy
We lead our custom website projects with a research and strategy process that helps us uncover all of the key information before we start putting together any creative concepts. This can include kick-off meetings, workshops and review sessions to help us design a process that is custom-made for the client team we're working with.
Class-leading digital design
Our design pedigree is award-winning - and our results are testament to the experience, effort and craftsmanship that goes into each one of our custom designs. We take an analytical, methodical approach to our creative projects, and work very closely with our clients to iterate on big, brave ideas that put results at the centre of the deliverable.
Clean, rapid development
Our development standards are exceptionally high, regardless of the product we're building or the platform being used to build it. We pride ourselves on clean, well-organised, minimal code that adheres to all modern standards across both responsive and desktop implementations.
Award-winning post-launch support
Our award winning products are bundled with a commitment to client service that we take very seriously. This extends into our project post-launch strategy too - we put together custom, per-client post-project support packages and we can work on either a fully retained or an informal basis.
Our added value
As well as building sophisticated, simple-to-manage custom websites, we're an experienced technology team with more than 15 years of commercial experience in Internet technologies. That means that we go above and beyond as standard.
Whether it's newsletter systems, CRM systems, custom API work or more - our technical team are veterans in connecting your website to the satellite services that help you run your business. No challenge is too large or small - and often, we can help you think about your business and workflow in ways that you previously haven't.
Of course, custom websites are often more than that - and sometimes they need to do lots of things in parallel. If you need a custom website that sells as well, we've got the experience to design and develop elegant e-Commerce integrations that are as simple for the customer as they are for your website administrators.
Social media integration
Social media is where your customers are digital natives - and understanding how to integrate social media activity with a custom website requires consideration and strategy for maximum results. Our experience in very competitive sectors means that we can help you craft an integration with your social media destinations that drives your customers exactly where you need them to be.
Digital marketing materials
Key to any ongoing digital marketing plan is top-quality design materials that represent your brand consistently and professionally. We can help with social media banners, campaign graphics, photography, newsletter templates and creative strategy for ongoing outreach activities.
We can build on all kinds of different platforms, and integrate with all sorts of different technologies. For us, it's vital that we offer the right platform for the job at hand and don't try to force a square peg through a round hole.

Our happy clients
We approached BAO to re-design our Shopify store to create a more bespoke website, fitting of our company branding. The team were extremely helpful from the start of the process and delivered on all aspects of design and functionality. The final product is slick and modern but ultimately it captures the essence of what Giulio is all about.Giulio's Fashion
The By Association Only team went over and above to ensure that our project was executed in line with our desired timeline, designed immaculately + was a perfect representation of our brand. They continue to provide support and offer helpful advice and we've already embarked on our next project with them. I couldn't recommend them highly enoughShop Anna
The team at BAO have a very thorough knowledge of Shopify and Shopify Plus. They were under pressure to deliver 4 new Shopify stores for us within a very short time period. Not only did they achieve this but actually had the sites ready a day before the go live date. Start to finish the project took less than 3 months. The project itself was quite complex however BAO developed a great solution for us.Cambridge Satchel Company
