Navy Special Operations Foundation

Red Plug Design has been such an incredible asset to the formation of our new business. Having used several website developers in the past, Red Plug is far and away the most professional, courteous and timely design service I have utilized. In just a few short months they have taken very basic concepts and ideas to create a website that has far surpassed expectations and feedback has been extremely positive. We could not be more satisfied!!


Ian had been very helpful and responsive to our needs. His experience working with some of the Shopify apps has also prove to be very beneficial. We had completed our own research on a review app and we were close to implementing that one. Ian recommended a different provider that has prove to be a great fit.

Thank you Ian! If i had know all of the sales channel opportunities that were available with Shopify, I would have gone into business years ago.

Elizabeth Claire's Easy English NEWS

Ian Townsend, Red Plug Design Co, created my new website with shopping cart in an awesome manner. (I produce a monthly newspaper and sell 26 products.) (

I am really pleased with the appearance, ease of use, and clarity of the site. We are getting at least ten times the orders, and larger orders, than we used to get with my old website. I am getting the extra benefits of site visitors being able to communicate with me, send stories and questions. Ian always responds quickly to all requests, things to post, and questions. He's a problem solver, and has amazed me with his ability to do things others were not able to do. I'd highly recommend him to anyone who wants a new website or wants their website managed. It's a great pleasure to work with him, and the shopping cart/site is paying for itself.

Dr. Morse's Herbal Health Club

We get loads of compliments on our website, it looks great and does what we need it to and more! Ian always provides insightful and experienced advice, and has made great recommendations that always maximize efficiency and profitability. His response times are excellent and the support (especially during launch) were unbeatable!

The Stylist LA

Ian from Red Plug Design is great to work with. He is very knowledgable about shopify, timely in his responses and great at getting the job done. We had previous issues with developers not finishing tasks on time, leaving things unfinished and being hard to get ahold of. We didn't have any of these issues with Ian at all.

We highly recommend him!

Red Plug stood out from other developers by focusing on my companies industry and particular market, instead of defaulting to "how everybody else does it". The extra time he spent planning and researching resulted in a site that allows our users to make the exact product they want. Future sales from current customers was a high priority, and the integration with MailChimp, blogging & social media addressed this perfectly.

Take the time and see the value in your investment and contact Ian!

ToyBuilder Labs

Ian was wonderful to work with. If you don't know what you need, he will help you figure it out. He kept himself and me on task and was always right on time with what he said he would do. He has been very responsive after the site was built in making any changes I have requested. I will continue to work with Ian as our site grows and changes - what better praise is there than that.
