    Knowledge is Power & Power is Money

  • Analyze & Strategize

    We’ve met the actors and you’ve given us the plotline, in Analyze and Strategize, we’re getting an understanding of your audience to help you sell tickets to the show. We draw from your current data analytics and our expertise in E-Commerce to determine who your customer is, what they like, and how they like it: enabling us to strategically optimize your platform and content to deliver upon your customers’ ideals.

  • Design & Build

    We subscribe to the creative doctrine of, “show, don’t tell”, a philosophy that not only applies to the interactivity of the e-commerce sites we build, but also to the approach we take in presenting to our own clients. Once we understand the parameters of the project, we cut out a lot of unnecessary rigmarole that design agencies might otherwise engage in, to quickly turn around a custom, fully-functioning prototype that you and your team can experience, first-hand.

  • Monitor & Iterate

    So, how was the premiere? You came to us with a problem, a budget and a timeline and we established short and long-term initiatives to, both, get the show on the road and to keep it moving. In the monitor and iterate phase, we proactively measure the site’s performance against your goals: troubleshooting and reiterating to assure an exciting return on your investment.

  • Creative Director
  • Andy Thayer

    Impervious to sky-high scoville units and dress codes that exclude any variation of the classic, “jort”, Andy is our resident spice master and creative savant. In addition to his raging addiction to hot sauce, Andy has a fiery passion for interactive design. He got his start in the museum industry designing touch-based exhibit installations. Ten years later, Andy has focused his passion for user experience in the E-commerce space. Where his name was once most closely associated with death-defying, Sriracha-induced hijinx, you can now expect to see Andy mentioned as a Shopify expert and the creative force behind multiple awards.

Also our in-house people-pleaser, Holly is the brains behind the delivery of our service. She’ll ensure that your experience with S&B is kosher at every turn, while also helping mediate your familial disputes, subbing in for your dog-walker, and curating your next running playlist.
