Now Now is an independent design studio and Shopify Expert from Des Moines, Iowa.

We help ambitious businesses realize their vision and connect with their customers in meaningful ways through brand strategy, identity development, and experience design. We approach projects holistically and partner with clients long-term, providing thoughtful design, code, and content along the way. Let's work.

Our clients include award-winning professionals, bootstrapped startups, cultural organizations, and emerging ecommerce brands. We integrate with photographers and creatives to bring content to life, and manage day-to-day hosting tasks and performance optimizations so you don't have to.

We ask questions, test opportunities, measure results, and repeat.

We love building relationships with good vibes and websites with WordPress and Shopify.
