Responsive website design & development on Shopify
Backyard Discovery was looking to upgrade the theme for their Shopify website, modernize the general look and feel, and implement Augmented Reality (AR) features developed by Shopify. Their previous site was also starting to look a little dated, with mobile display problems and bloated scripts. They hired us to clean it up, make it responsive, and ensure the AR features would work beautifully.
