The last few years have seen customer buying habits massively shift to online-ready platforms and brands. This was, in part, hastened by the COVID-19 pandemic. This trend is set to continue, with online purchasing becoming the new standard. In 2016, retail ecommerce sales accounted for US$1,845 billion. In 2020, this more than doubled to US$4,280 billion.
It has never been more crucial to ensure you have an ecommerce website design ready for the future. And the options are seemingly endless. What platform should you start with? What’s the easiest to use? What best fits your particular brand and sector? Can you adapt to future changes and trends? And whilst you’re mulling this, your competitors are getting online and selling online.
And at BFI, you will find one. As an ecommerce development agency we’ve been working with a wide range of high-performance ecommerce platforms for over 20 years. We have the skills and expertise to develop any retail platform, no matter how ambitious.

We’ve enjoyed an established relationship with Mike Vaughan Cycles for many years. Recently they enquired about an ecommerce website redesign to make the user journey easier, take advantage of new web technologies, improve page speed and site performance, and refresh the visual aesthetic to reflect the evolution of the brand.
In close co-ordination with them, we proofed and deployed a modern future-proofed ecommerce website design that helped users navigate through the website much easier, and increased Conversion Rates for the brand.

We were very impressed with the design, it reflects our brand well and engages our target market customers with the right kind of imagery and messaging... We’ve received lots of compliments about the look and functionality of the website... We would wholeheartedly recommend Big Fish!
This is the second time I have worked with BFI on a website redesign for Mike Vaughan Cycles, and both times I've been happy with the result! From the get-go they understood the brief and really hit the nail on the head with our branding and what we needed. The team kept us in the loop during the design process and worked with us to make any changes we requested. They've offered training and have always been on hand to answer queries we have had.
