A Little About Us


WE'RE SELECTIVE AND PERSONAL

One advantage we offer compared to bigger agencies is that you'll be talking directly to your personal designer or developer (Lauren or Zak) from inquiry to launch. You won't be working through a project manager who is guarding your creative team's time. When we work with you, we're ALL IN! 

 

WE BELIEVE IN REAL OWNERSHIP

Being reliant on someone else to edit your site means you aren't actually holding the reins of your own business anymore. We’ll be here for you after launch, but the beauty of Shopify is that it gives owners long term control over their online stores without relying on a team like us. Some custom themes include special features that require a few extra steps to maintain. We take care to preserve your ownership by creating detailed personal theme documentation (maintenance instructions) online for easy future reference.

 

we know that clarity = conversion

It's easy to let your site become a "braindump" for everything  you are and what you offer. But conversion is all about clarity. We'll help you fine-tune your architecture and content to create a site with no speed bumps between your customers and checkout. A confused mind is a non-buying mind. So clarity is the #1 priority.


 

If you're interested in starting a Shopify project with us, or just want to gather some information for planning purposes, we want to hear from you! 

 

How did we get here?

 

Well, thanks for asking. Lauren fell in love with designing online stores in 2005 while Zak was zooming around the Mediterranean on a Navy cruiser. When Zak finished his time with the Navy, he went straight into web development, turning Lauren's solo freelancing enterprise into a partnership that we love deeply. 

Zak is the coding and development half of H+H. Also loves: baseball diamonds, bikes, noise-canceling headphones, PB & Js and spy movies.  Lauren is the design-loving half of H & H, and go-to for all things visual. Loves: old time radio mysteries, hand-painted signs, black tea, shelter dogs, road trips, and Jessica Fletcher.
