Leeds-based web design and development agency That Works has been appointed to work for three brands formerly featured on the BBC TV series Dragons’ Den.

The agency is working with UpCircle, PÄRLA and HomeThings to grow the ecommerce offering and improve the digital customer experience for each of the brands through custom Shopify design and development. 

Both eco-friendly beauty and cosmetics company UpCircle and sustainable cleaning supplies company HomeThings accepted offers from several Dragon investors on the show. Toothpaste tabs business PÄRLA turned down offers due to the amount of percentage equity requested.

William Brightman, co-founder of UpCircle said: “Having seen the capabilities of That Works for other brands, we wanted to reach out and see if they could help us improve our website offering. The process has been seamless from start to finish and they have created some fantastic functionality that we are excited to deploy on-site.”

Founded in 2018 by young entrepreneur Jordan Hill, the agency already works with a number of ecommerce brands such as Sofa Club and Razzl Dazzl Hair.

Jordan Hill (pictured) said: “It’s amazing to be working on the Shopify stores for three purpose-driven companies who all had really positive experiences on Dragons’ Den. 

“We're on a mission to grow exponentially throughout 2022 and work with more exciting companies both me and our team love to work with. Having recently started to receive interest from international companies, signing ecommerce brands up as far as the Middle East, it gives me great confidence we will deliver on our mission.”
