Fresh Blue Mornings 12 days ago

I found Curious Themes after frantically searching for someone to finish what another designer/developer had started. I'm so glad I did, as Elle not only completed edits to my site, but she went, in my opinion, above and beyond. I am so thankful I found her - I am thrilled with what she has done and I appreciate the fact that I can reach out to her for future design needs.

Whimsy Boutique about 1 year ago

I had a wonderful experience working with Elle. She was great at taking the idea in my head and making it come to life. We can now focus more on adding new items and being confident that the website will display them well. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner. On top of that, her price came in lower than all of the other bids I received. I am very glad that we went with Elle for out project and would highly recommend her.

Armed & Mirrored over 1 year ago

Working with Elle has exceeded my expectations. She is patient, thorough and beyond fair. There were a few designers and developers I've worked with who made me question their integrity. However, not only did Elle deliver exactly what she said she would, but her price points were well within reason. I will continually consult Elle with future projects.

Tea for Spot over 1 year ago

Elle was awesome! We had a tight deadline - she listened with patience; executed our thoughts & ideas with precision and made changes in a timely manner. She has a great sense of design and "got" our style right away. A real pleasure to work with! Would definitely work with Elle again and have no hesitations recommending her. She ROCKS!

Mamafrica over 1 year ago

Elle is absolutely amazing! She was able to take my vision and turn it into a reality. Her work exceeded my expectations. She was able to take our mission and really shine it throughout the website. Our sales have increased exponentially since our website redesign--and Elle is to thank for that.

Not to mention her prices, for the work she does, they are incredible. I looked around for a month and her prices were the best but she delivers a website that people charge thousands for.

I would recommend Elle to anyone! Thank you for your time and improving our business.

Elle is amazing! She is professional, prompt and very capable. I have built numerous web sites in the past, and have never had an experience that was so pleasant and easy. Elle is easy to work with and takes initiative to complete tasks, and goes well beyond the expected and required to build a web site that is not only functional but truly reflects the branding and feel of the business. I highly recommend her to Shopify customers, could not have asked for more!

Stephanie Creekmur almost 2 years ago

Elle has been completely wonderful to work with! I've worked with her a few different times and each time I show her my vision for new updates, she makes it come to life. She works quickly and my shop is easily accessed by shoppers on desktops and mobile devices! I have very little knowledge when it comes to changing the way my store looks and works behind the scenes so Elle has been a lifesaver! I can't recommend her enough!

Vancouver Stealth about 2 years ago

Elle really put our vision to reality in creating our webstore. She was very informative throughout the whole process. Her experience and creativity really showed me that she was the right one for the job from the beginning. Her knowledge in all facets of Shopify was definitely a plus. Her communication throughout the process was great, she kept us up to date on things she was working on and required from us. I will definitely use Elle on my future projects or anything web related.

Working with Elle couldn't have been a more positive experience for us. We are not very tech savvy and Elle helped us through every step of the process. She is extremely talented, approachable and very easy to work with. So many people have commented on how professional our site looks and we owe that all to Elle!

Hunting Skins over 2 years ago

Elle was simply incredible to work with. The amazing thing is that our business is in the hunting industry, which Elle was not very familiar with. Well, her creative instincts enabled her to dig right in as if she had been involved in the hunting industry her whole life. Her work has won us praises from some of the most well known hunters and industry professionals in the world. Take a look for yourself. We've already hired her for another project in an entirely different market and we're even more impressed with her ability to completely understand our goals. If you are considering her for a project, you will not be disappointed.

Augusta Abyss over 2 years ago

Elle turned a project in the making, and also a dream, into a reality for us at Augusta Abyss Inc. We could not of asked for someone better to work with than Shopify Expert Elle McCann. She worked very diligently for us and communicated great with us throughout the process of creating our website.
Any questions or concerns we had pertaining to any part of the Shopify system, Elle had a detailed answer to them and was willing to go above and beyond what we asked of her. Considering the fact of creating a website and understanding how to fully manage it properly was a totally new aspect of business to us, Elle made sure we received all the information to understand how the process worked and enlightened us on issues she thought were necessary to be brought to our attention. After two weeks of launching our website we understand the ins and outs of Shopify due to the knowledge we received from Elle.
Elle was not only available to us during the process of building our website, but even after the launch of it, Elle remained to be available to us answering any questions we had as we began to manage the site ourselves. Augusta Abyss Inc. strongly recommends Elle as a Shopify expert!

To Peace Clothing over 2 years ago

I am thrilled with the work that Elle McCann did to set up and customize my Shopify theme (Fashionopolis). I found Elle through the Shopify Experts page and fully agree with the other positive reviews. Elle is timely and responsive and was able to launch my store within 2 weeks as promised. She is extremely knowledgeable about the customizations available on Shopify, which was helpful to me as a Shopify novice. Her fees were reasonable, straightforward and were completely honored. She is a pleasure to work with! Check out her customizations and my store at To Peace Clothing, www.topeaceclothing.com.

Partners4Care.com over 2 years ago

If Shopify allowed more stars for reviews, I would certainly award them to Elle! She is a buttoned up professional who listens carefully, learns your requirement quickly, and delivers on-time. While "all business", she's friendly, easy to talk to and goes the extra mile to make sure your site looks and works exactly how you envision. I recommend Elle without hesitation, and look forward to working with her again.

Elle was able to re-vamp our website and make it look so much more professional. She listened to our concerns and translated the business side to the web / tech design. Since going live with our new storefront, we have received so many positive comments. I highly recommend Elle for tailoring website to customer needs.

Over the Moon Diapers almost 3 years ago

Working with Elle was such a pleasure! She was incredibly professional, setting a timeline and communicating her progress throughout the duration of the project. I appreciated that she took time to speak with me on the phone, as sometimes it's hard to convey design ideas via email. I was so pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend her!!
