SwankyApple are an ecommerce specialised design and development agency based in the beautiful Cathedral city of Exeter. They specialise in Shopify ecommerce store design and development, and are an accredited 'Shopify Expert’, supporting Shopify's over 160,000 global customers in needs ranging from fully bespoke ecommerce store creation, through to search marketing campaigns and occasional fixes and optimisations.


Their services start with an operational consultation to establish the suitability of Shopify or other ecommerce platforms for each store's unique needs. This is followed with comprehensive market analysis to establish target audience, competitors and opportunities. A creative, iterative design and development process follows to result in sector leading ecommerce stores which attract, engage and convert.


SwankyApple was created by Andrew McSweeney and Dan McIvor in January 2010 with the aim of building a client focused, jargon-free creative agency. Dan brings ten years of creative digital experience gained through content production, search marketing, time as a freelance designer/developer and then as UK manager for an off-shore development studio before finally launching SwankyApple. Andrew is an expert in lean operations, the subject of his PhD, and brings several years department and company management experience. Fun fact - Andrew thought of the name SwankyApple years earlier and remembered it when it came time to name the business. SwankyApple’s creative director, Matt Giles, comes from a deeply creative background previously working as a print designer and musician.
