Inspired by adventure, road trips, and the love of the outdoors, HitchFire has developed a rugged, hitch-mounted grill, designed to withstand the roughest weather and toughest conditions for a world full of undiscovered trails and expeditions. It’s not just a grill, it’s Adventure Grilling™.
The ultimate in outdoor apparel. Whether you're hunting, fishing, or off-roading, Gator Waders has got the gear to keep you in peak performance in any condition.
For a brand that's all about getting muddy, GW wanted a website that was ultra clean, with just a little bit of grit. Customers can easily find the waders, footwear, or jacket they need.
SIMBA’s lightweight, aqua-dynamic design provides full head coverage without compromising freedom of underwater movement. Along with impact protection, the helmet also offers shelter from the damaging effects of long term exposure to sun, wind and water.
Having a beautifully designed helmet meant having the right vehicle so the customers could learn about the benefits, and make a quick purchase.
Celebrating 40 years, Northern California's Pacific Cookie Company doesn't just bake some of the best teeth-sinking cookies you can find—they do it with a philosophical commitment to sustainability. Sure, everyone in their community loves their gourmet offering, but they ship tasty boxes all over the USA.
Pacific Cookie's no stranger to selling online—they'd been doing so for longer than many others in their space. That being said, they relied on a custom-coded cart that was past its expiration that was expensive to expand upon and impacting growth. We teamed up with them for a redesign and migration to Shopify to set them up for 2020's insatiable desire for their favorite treats to be delivered to their doorstep.
For over 50 years and three generations, Arlen Ness has been creating what very well may be the finest products in the world for V-Twin motorcycles. But it doesn't stop there—they're masterful at the design and build their own custom bikes that are famous the world over.
We partnered with the good dudes over at Arlen Ness to migrate them from Magento to Shopify and design and develop a fast, shiny, and bold website worthy of their world-class products and legendary custom bikes.
From naming and branding to a full Shopify e-commerce experience, we gave these outdoor kitchen enthusiasts and polished, robust platform to springboard them to success.
Having designed the very first smokeless fire pit back in 2011, Breeo is a true pioneer on the trail of firepit technology. They're on an everlasting quest to create the ultimate campfire experience.
Armed with a brand refresh, Breeo asked us to craft a site that matched the intensity of their new found identity. We cooked something up that was simultaneously cleaner and grittier all in one undeniably awesome package.
Breeo's products are beautifully designed with precision, but how their products work is just as important, if not more so. We had the same mindset with the website—it beautifully supports the brand with a sleek look and feel, but tucked beneath the gloss is a high-converting workhorse. The buy flow is designed to guide, inform, and purchase without a hitch. It's simple, intuitive, and hard to look away.
Tepui makes products for those who seek exploration without boundaries. Their hometown of Santa Cruz California is rich with outdoor activities, so it's no wonder Tepui has been inspired to create innovative products that are trusted worldwide. They don't just make their products; they live them.
Hot on the heels of a complete rebrand, Tepui was more than ready for a modern site that would fully encompass their culture and cult-like following that's grown organically. They approached us in the midst of weighing the options of different enterprise-level ecommerce platforms. Already on Shopify, we assured them that staying on the platform and upgrading to Shopify Plus was the only way to rain-fly. Before long, we were laying down a tarp and pounding our stakes into a complete redesign from top to bottom.
With August, you are always in control of your front door, no matter where you are, right from your phone. Based in San Francisco, their products help you keep the bad guys out and let your friends and family in.
Activity monitoring. Guest access. Total Control. Status Updates. There's a lot to showcase, but their previous website wasn't as modern as their cutting-edge products. We took their existing WordPress + Shopify hybrid site and underwent an entirely new custom build all housed within Shopify Plus.
When it came to the checkout process, we collaborated with August to implement a super custom slide-out cart that kills two birds with one stone. It acts as both a product and variant selector and a user-friendly, sleek and quick way to check what's in the cart and checkout in no time flat.
Levi's needs no introduction. It all started in San Francisco when the news of the California Gold Rush made its way east, and the rest is...history.
Yeah, they're the original, but they've also been innovating since they invented the blue jean in 1873. Despite such a rich legacy, Levi Strauss' former website was, well, a little too vintage! We wear Levi's almost every day, so it was hard not to get excited about the opportunity to collaborate with our pals at Iron Creative to code out their new designs from the cuffs up. With an ambitious timeline, we unveiled a new home for their corporate web presence just in time for their upcoming IPO.
The new Levi Strauss site serves as the hub of their entire corporate identity. It's not only the backbone for their Levi's, Dockers, Denizen, and Signature brands—it's also the vehicle for their story, values, careers, investors, press, and everything in between. With a bold UX coupled with an extremely content-focused site, we opted for an entirely custom WordPress-based build. Ambitious as the timeline was, we buttoned up an ultra-responsive, pixel-perfect design that'd make Mr. Strauss himself proud.
First introduced in 1958, Swisher Sweets is one of the largest-selling cigar brands in the world by far. You’ll find a variety of their tasty cigars in every corner store in the USA, literally.
Swisher is a classic brand that never goes out of style, but their web presence wasn’t in step with their current image. We burned their old website to the ground and designed a sleek new site rolled up in a tasty Shopify wrapper.
A solution for all-in-one supply chain transparency, SupplyShift is a responsible supply chain network that helps you discover the insights you need to deliver the best products possible — for your business, people, and the planet.
So, how do you make a complex subject like supply chain logistics management approachable and accessible? That was the challenge we faced with the redesign of the SupplyShift website. We worked together to create something that far surpasses their competitors. It’s alive with color, animation, and illustrations that outline the benefits and tell their story (more on those below). Built out on the WordPress platform with a clear and easy-to-read hierarchy, the homepage is an engaging masterpiece, if we do say so ourselves.
After testing every water filter on the market, they discovered no one else was doing enough to protect our health. Clearly Filtered set out on a mission to do it right, ultimately creating the only technology that can target and remove a full spectrum of tap water contaminants. Their products filter water that is truly clean and safe.
Impressed by their products and the passion they have for them, we partnered with Clearly Filtered to help propel and champion their message to the masses. Their existing site helped them establish a loyal following, but unlike their products, it wasn’t designed to deliver the kind of results they rightfully deserve. Starting from scratch, we re-engineered their UX from the ground up, redesigning every page with explicit intent.
Designed and crafted in their US workshop, Zpacks offers the best hiking gear money can buy. They only develop products they'd use themselves and trust us; they're out in the wild using them every chance they get.
Having handled their existing web presence in-house, Zpack's loyal following had outgrown its current site by a long shot. Based in Florida, they found us tucked away in the outdoor mecca of California to re-platform to Shopify Plus and custom craft a website worthy of their world-renowned gear.
A sister company to the luxury jewelry brand, Melanie Casey, Farewell was born out their desire to bring upscale design to everyone. Unique layouts. Impeccable craftsmanship. Admiral beauty. It's all within arm's reach with their curated pieces.
Farewell approached us to help them launch an entirely new website for their entirely new brand from scratch. It had been a minute or three since we'd designed a jewelry site so we were excited to throw our hat in the... earring. (Sorry, yeah, we just had to...) Already having great success on the Shopify Plus platform with Melanie Casey, getting Farewell up and running on Shopify was an easy choice.
A leading innovator in the oral and orthodontic care market, EverSmile was founded to make it easy for all clear aligner patients to achieve fresh breath and healthy, bright white teeth during their aligner treatment. It's the only wearable aligner cleaner on the market—now that's something to smile about.
With products available worldwide, EverSmile's steady growth called for a website overhaul that would better support their branding and give both their B2C and B2B customers a flawless buying experience. They hired our team to fully redesign their Shopify site while streamlining their back-office operations with a switch to the Zoho CRM platform.
Makers of the world’s most versatile light, we teamed up with Lume Cube to design and develop a shiny new website, migrating them from a Magento-WordPress hybrid over to the Shopify Platform.
Lume Cube needed a new commerce solution, and fast. With their products rolling out into all of the brick and mortar Apple Stores, they were looking to give their site a full-on overhaul that would not only better support their brand's aesthetic, but eliminate the sharp pain points of their previous site's UX. Short on time, we were able to get them up and running on Shopify using a basic template while working on a new custom site in the background.
The City of San Francisco is no stranger to earthquakes, so it’s no surprise that “The Earthquake Bag” was born within the city limits. Now offering far more than the popular emergency bag alone, Redfora has evolved into a full-blown emergency company that’s on a mission to keep the world prepared for the next disaster.
Formerly known as The Earthquake Bag, we helped Redfora navigate their name change to ensure that the launch of the new brand was a seamless transition. With an ambitious timeline, we took on the challenge to design a fresh new logo to accompany their new moniker alongside photography, custom iconography, and a new website that packs in more than their popular bags.
bkr water bottles are an environmentally friendly way to take part in cutting down on the world’s disposable plastic bottle habit, and they're a beautiful way to do it. Designed in San Francisco, these unique bottles disrupted the health and beauty industries, gaining a passionate following among celebrities, beauty editors and fashion insiders.
Relying on a previous custom ecommerce solution that was costly and lacking modern features, bkr was in search of a Shopify Plus Solutions Partner in the SF Bay Area to completely redesign the site and migrate everything over to Shopify’s enterprise-level platform. We were excited to work with the brand to rethink the overall user experience and help streamline their complex back-office operations.
Since 1991, Rise has been releasing some of the very best records in the rock, punk, and indie scenes. From legendary acts like Angels and Airwaves, Hot Water Music, and At the Drive-in, to contemporary juggernauts like Dance Gavin Dance and Crown the Empire, Rise is always taking things to the next level. To put it simply: they’re the label to beat.
Now a subsidiary of BMG, we’ve been working with Rise for years and were super excited to give their site a long-overdue refresh. The site we originally built for them was backed by a custom CMS and relied on a link to a third party service for selling their merch online. This time around, we wrapped everything up all under the Shopify hood. This not only gives them a great way to market their artists, but also to sell their releases and merchandise directly.
With over 40 years specializing in the manufacturing and distribution of all things quartz, GM needed a fresh, modern face to further cement them as the leader in their field for years to come.
We had the opportunity to refresh GM's entire brand top to bottom—naming, website, signage, photography, print collateral, etc. Formerly known as GM Associates, our initial workshops uncovered the possibility of refining their name as it was feeling a bit too stuffy and vague. We encouraged simplifying it to GM Quartz as the clear choice. Straightforward and to the point, it references their original name to avoid confusing existing customers, while making it obvious that they are quartz manufacturers.
Bringing GM into the modern age was at the forefront when designing their new site. We migrated them from an archaic e-commerce setup to a decked-out Shopify implementation. The homepage was designed to reinforce their new branding, give customers a clear overview of what services they offer, and encourage more online sales in an industry where it’s not the norm.
AlterEco's a San Francisco based company who's nationally known for their excellent chocolate concoctions. Their mission is to pioneer a full circle approach to eating, farming, and doing business – and to inspire others to do the same.
With a 15 year history, AlterEco had recently tackled a full rebrand, refining their voice, logo, and packaging to support their ongoing expansion. We worked with them and their design team at Iron Creative to build out three in-depth custom Shopify sites—their direct-to-consumer ecommerce/marketing sites for both the USA and Australian along with their wholesale site for the distribution side of the business.
Provac Sales maintains one of the largest inventories of new and rebuilt vacuum pumps in the United States. They ship, service and deliver far and wide. What’s a vacuum pump you say? We’ll get to that…
A long-time client, Provac came back to us to reinvent their Shopify-based website after undergoing a recent rebrand. This being the third time we've had the opportunity to redesign their website, we were able to turn over each and every stone to create a new site that lives up to the impeccable level of services they provide.
Howlin' is THE place to go for Nashville-style fried chicken in LA. They're pretty busy... like lines out the door and around the block busy. Mmmmmm.
Howlin’ Rays had a problem. The demand for their crispy fried goodness was too high. Sounds like a good problem to have, but preordering for large groups and their ability to properly take, fill and deliver on those orders was a logistical challenge better left alone. That of course, is where we came in.
One of Howlin's biggest goals was a way for people, parties, or companies to order ahead of time. After some unsuccessful attempts with other agencies, they trusted us to take the project on, get it done, and get it done right. We scrapped what they had already started and developed an ultra custom restaurant preorder system right inside Shopify tied in with a few juicy little nuggets of Wordpress. It’s essentially a private Shopify app that was built to exacting specs. You won’t find this in the App Store.
Vogmask is the original designer mask, and their beautiful products are comfortable and reusable. They're healthy for their faithful customers and good for the planet. Imitators offer nowhere near the quality and care they’ve put into their groundbreaking products.
A client of ours since their inception, we knew success was imminent the day they brought their prototypes to our office. With an always awesome team on their side, we collaborated with Vogmask on a new site that showcases the brand in the way it deserves. With super custom illustrations, subtle animation, and a perfected user-experience, the result is nothing short of breath taking.
For Wild Roots, organic's not just a buzz word, it's their passion. This grocery market cares deeply about the land and the food it gifts us, and understand that the choices we make for our families today, help shape the future they'll live in tomorrow.
Formerly part of a larger chain of markets, these two locations in the Santa Cruz Mountains were looking to break away from the rest of the pack. Independently owned, it was due time to bring their hometown roots to light with a full rebrand. We had the opportunity to start from scratch- naming, brand identity, voice, signage, collateral, website and the myriad of comprehensive branding elements a market requires.
Sights, sounds, trails, food, wine, and fun—the historic Santa Cruz Mountains have a lot to offer, but they've never had a proper online destination for visitors and locals to get a bird's eye view, until now.
We're of course huge fans of the peaks and valleys that surround us, and some of us live up in those there hills—so the opportunity to work on the project was close to our hearts, to say the least. We kicked things off with the organization's logo, went on to design the WordPress-powered website, and fleshed out the rest of the visuals with custom illustrations and photography.
Socksmith’s a fun and lovingly-quirky brand that has won the hearts of sock enthusiasts across the globe. These are no ordinary socks—they’re warm and fuzzy in more ways than one.
Socksmith’s world-renowned brand needed a world-class presence. Their previous Magento-based site had done them well over the years, but it didn’t exactly age gracefully. We migrated them over to Shopify Plus and decked it out with a bespoke design that fit their feet perfectly. Custom illustrations? Yep. Tasteful animation: Yep. Assistance with their content strategy: But of course!
Since the 1950s, California's Four Winds Growers have strived to offer the highest quality dwarf citrus and edible ornamentals available, empowering home gardeners with the knowledge and resources they need to succeed in any setting. As a community, they aim to foster a socially and environmentally conscious lifestyle that honors the home-grown tradition.
From an updated logo, to the brand voice, to a fully redesigned website, we worked with Four Winds Growers to revitalize their already renowned brand from top to bottom. The end result culminated in a shiny new Shopify Plus site that captures the very essence of the brand and empowers their customers.
Catering to a worldwide collective of car detailers and clean-freaks who like to keep their toys nice and shiny, Voodoo Ride’s brand has more under the hood than the competition. They’re not just a line of car care products—they're a way of thinking, they're a lifestyle, and they strive to be the best at what they do.
On a mission to more accurately showcase their brand as a community-oriented lifestyle, Voodoo contracted us to throw in the towel on their old site, rethink it from the ground up, and jump platforms to Shopify Plus.
PNP offers safe and highly effective sports supplements that help athletes reach peak performance. Their products have quickly earned the reputation of being a top choice for those looking for better-performing formulas to give them the edge.
The fresh and colorful new homepage includes a vibrant rotating banner area with four captivating slider images that correspond with illustrated icons that are 100% unique to them. Their site's layout naturally guides customers to learn about their flagship products. With critical calls-to-action throughout, eager customers have no problem finding their way and quickly making a purchase.
Mountain Feed and Farm Supply is an awesome gift shop, homestead supply, housewares store and nursery tucked into a small town in California's Santa Cruz Mountains. They carry everything you need for homesteading including growing your own food, harvesting, preserving, cooking and more.
We designed and developed a fully responsive ecommerce site to help these local favorites reach the masses. The site is jam packed (no pun intended—seriously, it just happened) with the best learning resources around, and it's all 100% powered by a fully customized Shopify platform.
