Sunderland web design agency hits Shopify’s top 20


A boutique North East web development and design agency has been named among the top 20 Shopify developers n the UK.

Sunderland-based Blueocto was ranked 19th in the ‘top 100 UK Shopify developers’ list for 2022, beating some of the biggest names in the industry and toping the chart in the North East.

Compiled by B2B review websites The Manifest and Clutch, the annual table considers a range of factors, from client reviews to the quality and quantity of services offered and projects delivered.

Blueocto was founded in 2015 by web development specialist Caroline Hagan to design and deliver websites for SMEs across the North East. Since then, the company has grown to secure contracts across the region for clients big and small from an array of sectors.

This includes recent projects for AddictionsUK, Mental Health Concern and North East Homeless, all of which were highlighted by the authors of the report as stand out projects.

Hagan, said: “We were absolutely blown away when we received the email to say we’d been ranked among Shopify’s top UK developers. When we heard the news, we were delighted just to be in the top 100, but when we heard we were 19th we were absolutely gobsmacked.

“I can’t thank [the team] enough for their help over the last few years to get the business where we are today.”
Blueocto is currently in the process of moving into a new office in Sunderland’s Business Innovation Centre.
