34 Testimonials


It's been an absolute pleasure working with Mike, he's a true professional, extremely talented and really understands the direction your looking to take your brand. Our initial phone call was spent chatting about our company for at least an hour.

We thought after the call, this was the right guy! He really did care and had a genuine interest in what we we're trying to achieve, which we found to be quite rare.

Once he presented us with our initial concept of the website we knew we made the correct choice, and like I previously told him - he exceeded our expectations. We actually didn't need any major revisions (and we're very fussy).

Thank you Mike, we're very proud to showcase our brand now and a massive part of that is due to our website.

We wish you all the best!

Wrappy Paper

Wrappy is a new gift wrap company out of New York, designing fresh wrap that's as good (or better) as the gift inside.

We've worked with Mike for 3 projects now, and find his Shopify knowledge to be invaluable. As well as being easy to work with, he doesn't mind when we don't know the correct name for things, such as "that little circle thing on the top of the tab bit" and is always on hand for quick fixes after the sites have launched.


I'd highly, highly recommend Mike - He's fantastic, professional, flexible & has a great attitude no matter what you throw at him! ;)

5/5 - You've found the developer you need!

Simon, Founder SHO

Xlash global

It was a true pleasure working with Michael. He and his team made an outstanding job in getting us a new and fresh website. The communication was good and we are very happy we found this agency. Would really recommend!

Ready, Set, Food!

We've loved working with Mike. He wasn't afraid to push back against some of our recommendations, and the result is that we have a much better site than if he'd implemented our suggestions literally. He design sense is great and our site has gotten rave reviews from all of our customers and investors.

Huddly Store EUR

Extremely happy with Webowski. That is why we always go to him, and he's helped our company build and design/re-design our Shopify store over a 2 year period. We keep going back to Mike because of his great knowledge, quick responses and high quality work. Mike is easy to collaborate with, and he helps out with suggestions on how to solve challenges related to designing and implementing the store, including different apps on our Shopify store. Highly recommended!

Pi Supply

We were looking for a Shopify Expert who could work quickly and help us with moving our ecommerce platform from Woocommerce to Shopify. For us, this was a daunting task and after a few negative experiences with other designers/ecommerce platforms, we were beginning to lose hope.

After stumbling across Mike, we haven’t looked back. Mike has been a pleasure to work with and has kept us up to date on progress at all times. In the past, when we’ve worked with agencies, they’ve taken a long time to respond. Throughout the project, Mike was replying almost instantly to our questions & comments and at all hours of the day/night. As a small startup, this way of working suits us so we worked well with Mike. Since launching, the new site has been more stable, had fewer bugs, and is processing more orders than our previous outdated site.

We are very happy with our finished website and highly recommend his services to anyone who is planning to use Shopify!

Dr. James

We could not be any happier with the quality of work Webowski provided in coding our e-commerce site for shopify. Excellent communicater and flawless execution of the design from beginning to end. Could not recommend Webowski highly enough

Narrow Way Cafe

Working with Webowski is always a pleasure. He's one of the best in design and
development. You need to hire them if you're looking for modern design and


Webowski completely over-delivered our task to create custom shopify theme from our provided PSD, advanced functionality was required and whatever we needed was created, no questions asked. Will be working with them for all of our shopify needs!


This is the second time we have worked with Michael. He created our first site and when we reached out to him we expected the same level of development but we were surprised when he exceeded the high standard that he previously set.

He is the ultimate professional, full of ideas and very approachable. He understands that clients may not fully grasps all the technical stuff and takes time to explains them in lay man's terms. I can truly say that our search for developers has ended, as long as he is in this business he'll be our first point of contact.

Arrive Clothing

Mike is one of the rare developers that is a pleasure to work with! He is detailed, reliable and timely. I appreciate that he’s willing to think through problems we raise and suggests solutions. We’re happy to partner with him on the continued development of our store!

Merit Goodness

Webowski is the best. We love working with him. He can do it all, from design to development. And he does it while being easy to work with. If you want a quality website that speaks to the current times, work with Webowski! We sure will continue to!


We’ve been working with Webowski to customize the theme to what we liked and needed and he has done an AMAZING job at meeting our needs and working with us along the way. We look forward to keep working together and definitely recommend Webowski to anybody needing a shopify expert that is friendly, professional and knowledgeable


Great experience working with Webowski! He was flexible, detailed-oriented and responsive in his work - overall very happy with the work done! :)

Neat Nutrition

Mike was instrumental in the re-launch of our website. He has created a site for us which looks great and showcases our content in a creative and visually stunning manner. Amends are turned around quickly and the communication channels during the project build were made easier by the introduction of Base Camp project management. His expertise are a great addition to our team.

Artisan & Monkey

The passion and dedication that Mike, aka The Big Webowski, put into our project (www.artisanandmonkey.com) was simply amazing and beyond expectation. He provided honest and quick feedback, approached us proactively with new ideas and proposal and always found solutions to any challenge we faced. His work ethics and dedication enables him to go beyond the scope of work and really add a lot of additional value to his clients. You can buy webdesign almost everywhere today. But you can't buy enthusiasm and passion. Lucky for us, they come as standard with The Big Webowski.


I have worked with many different web developers and designers over the years and normally have had very average experiences. I could not have been happier about my relationship with The Big Webowski.

He has been diligent, timely and incredibly creative with our brief. This was definitely a relationship that I would recommend to anyone looking to develop something fresh, new and on trend with current consumer behaviour. The working relationship has been smooth and most importantly yielded great results.

We have actually retaining The Big Webowski for other projects moving forward because we have been that happy with everything.

The Soap Co

I can’t recommend Mike enough - FANTASTIC. He brought the work of award winning designs to life, converting them to shopify advocates! We now have a fantastic site that looks bespoke and represents our brand identity. Mike is super talented and great at thinking through the most complex problems and ALWAYS came back with solutions. We will not hesitate to get in touch with him for all future web-related assistance. All the best in the future.

5th Story

Mike was a pleasure to work with. He built our site and advised on design as we're selling high end fashion products we wanted the site to be clean, modern and expensive(looking). All of which was achieved!
Mike is also great at working with the not so tech savvy, like us. Explaining different functionalities and recommending options for strong SEO etc. I highly recommend working with Mike.


we got the big webowski to tweak our theme, the output is fantastic. been working along with a few shopify expert but Webowski is the best among the others i've came across.

Following up my issues really quick , able to maintain a very high quality of communication.

Will be working on Webowski in the long run and will be using him to do our future adjustment for our current website.

Airy Mary

We asked Mike to make some minor changes to our theme. He was incredibly fast - turning it around the same day and the work was done perfectly - exactly as requested. He was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with him on larger projects in the future.


I would happily recommend Mike for any Shopify work. Not only did he build the site perfectly and quickly from the layouts my designer provided, but he knows a ton about SEO, abandoned checkouts and all that good stuff that helps your store run well. Lovely to work with, too.

Shropshire Design

Fantastic and effortless working with Mike. We asked Mike to make some updates to an existing (really good Clean Themes) template inc. the introduction of a new mega-menu, improved footer and some nice inline CSS tweaks.

He literally turned all my changes around in a week and was really responsive to bugs and snags. I am looking forward to launching our updated template but before we do I will be asking Mike to make some further enhancements.

All the code is very clean, well commented/structured and all links to the theme settings ensuring things can be changed centrally without having to make additional edits e.g. colours etc.

Just brilliant!

Gerald Webster

Highly recommended. We've used Mike to fix issues we experienced across the whole site whenever they crop up. He is super quick getting back to us, suggesting alternative ways around problems if they is something better suited for us. He is really helpful, great value for money and speedy.

Macresco Detox Tea

We went for a whole website overhaul and from the very beginning Mike has been friendly and helpful, there has been nothing that he hasn't offered advice and help on. We found it easy to talk to Mike and he understood exactly what we wanted from the offset. Mike has achieved everything we wanted and more for us. We have now asked Mike to take on some extra work.

We would highly recommend The Big Webowski! The Dude is fantastic to work with and it has been an absolute pleasure.

Percy Ivor

Trying to get someone to turn a complicated idea into reality proved remarkably easy once we had found Mike. Not only has he provided us with a fantastic website but also helped with lots of ideas and creativity to improve things even further. We would not hesitate to recommend The Big Webowski to anyone wanting a small focused developer where you can always talk to the person actually creating your site. Mike is now helping with our SEO and we will use him again in the future as our business grows.

James at Percy Ivor


We are very happy to have worked with Mike!
He is creative, a problem solver, there are no problems only solutions.
He is always positive and caring, keeps his dead lines and has good contact.
He is not very good on the phone but email is no problem, he will get back to you in no time.
Before we hired Mike We went through 2 agencies and were never satisfied :(
We are a bit picky but like things done the right way and Mike was and is still there for us with support.
We will recommend him 100%.
If you are looking for a creative, problem solver, charismatic and good chap Mike’a the one!!!

Consummate professional, extremely knowledgeable, full of fascinating ideas and also patient. Mike is highly recommended by the team and we already have future plans to use him again. We had a functioning site but Mike turned it into a professional site.


Chasing Unicorns

Mike was great on my project from start to finish and made the whole process very easy for me. Highly recommended!


Really quick, very helpful, great work! Would definitely use BW for all future adjustments to website. Thanks.


Mike was on top of everything. He is great to work with and it is very detail oriented. I myself am very picky about design and can be difficult to work with at times, but Mike was able to provide me with options and never hesitated to go back and re-do something per my request.

He is good hearted and completes everything he says he will complete. I would definitely work with him again, and would refer him to anyone in need of a good developer.


The BigWebowski designed the layout of and built our site from start to finish. Was very professional and had countless creative suggestions regarding what we wanted versus Shopify capabilities. Up-to-date on styles and trends in e-commerce websites. Extremely responsive in our requests for changes, additions, and last-minute new ideas. Would absolutely use him again, highly recommended.


“I can't fault any part of the service that Mike provided. The schedule was met, his communication was top notch and the finished website is better than I thought it would be. I've really enjoyed working with Mike and would highly recommend hiring him if you need a kick ass Shopif
