Based in Los Angeles, Duck Soup E-Commerce is a one-woman web design and e-commerce agency specializing in startups and growing companies. I do everything from fully custom Stencil themes to theme tweaks/customization to product setup and more. I welcome full website launches, small hourly projects and everything in between. I have 20 years of e-commerce experience spanning marketing, usability, analytics and design, and I've been a BigCommerce partner for nearly a decade. I know the platform inside and out, and I've written two books - one about how to launch your e-commerce business and another jam-packed with BigCommerce tips. If you're looking for a straightforward, trustworthy designer to build a long-term working relationship, I'd love to speak with you.
Duck Soup E-Commerce proudly supports diversity in e-commerce and small business. From affordable, friendly services to donating a portion of my income to organizations dedicated to closing the race/gender gap in tech and entrepreneurship, it's my goal to make launching an e-commerce business accessible to everyone.
Converting from Blueprint to Stencil is more important than ever. BigCommerce no longer supports Blueprint themes - don't take the risk that something breaks during your busy season or two weeks before Christmas. Over the last few years, I’ve upgraded dozens of clients from Blueprint to Stencil. Some of these clients had custom Blueprint themes and wanted to keep their same design. Others wanted to refresh their design during the upgrade process. I've even worked with clients on pre-Blueprint themes! Whether you want to build a new custom theme or simply customize an existing theme, my Blueprint to Stencil upgrade process is easy and affordable.
