About ShopCreatify

Like all good superheroes, we need an origin story, an arch-enemy and a love interest. We have the first, not the second and only some of us have the last. We're also not superheroes, nor rockstars... nor ninjas. This is our story.

  • Who we are

Not wearing suits and taking names

Since our formation in late 2014, we've had a single goal of providing straight up and effective Shopify ecommerce services to merchants serious about success.

It all began on a stormy night* in October 2014, when a burly and well seasoned ecommerce specialist with a penchant for design and technology made a conscious decision to leave the world of smoke & mirror startups behind and forge his own destiny with a real, tangible startup of his own.

This destiny came in the form of an agency. Not just any agency, this agency! One full of Schnehages** and eventually a small, but tightly knit group of amazingly talented people.

Designers, developers, project managers, writers and analysts make up the bulk of ShopCreatify and over the years we've managed to acquire and retain an amazing portfolio of long-standing ecommerce merchant clients all over the world.

Ecommerce Services Without Borders

With the internet having been kind to the people of earth, it allowed ShopCreatify to look beyond the limitations of geographic placement.

Our people inhabit various beautiful locations around the world from Pittsburgh, USA to the forests of Wilderness on the Garden Route to an old renovated church in Vienna, Austria. We even have a digital nomad that is rarely in the same place when you speak to him... unless there is a worldwide pandemic, in which case he's stuck where he was when it happened. This last one had him locked down in Colombia.

We're really proud of the work we've done over the years and if you're interested to see some of it, go and take a look at our portfolio.

If you're looking for more information about what we do, this isn't the place, but this is.

* I honestly don't remember if it was stormy. It just seemed like a nice way to start our otherwise potentially boring about us page.

** Schnehages are an abnormally intelligent, fast learning and efficient breed of human. We have three of them.

The Fleshy Robots

If you're working with us, these are the people you'll have to tolerate.

Jessica Schnehage Project Manager

Came over from the music industry managing artists. Hyper efficient and more skilled than she should be at quickly separating bowls of M&M's into colors.

Nina Wolf Sales & Strategy

We're not sure which is actually Wolf, the person or the Shepherd dog. She likes the cold, so we have our suspicions. She's great with words and marketing though. A conundrum.

Barbara Van Wyk Creative & Strategy

Calm, collected and thorough... are three words. They're good words, the best words. Originally Barbara stalked us in Zoom calls, but now she is part of the team.

Ross Allchorn Founder, CEO

Spells ecommerce without capitalizing it, hyphenating it or any other way that might make him look daft. Catches more plastic bags than fish. Has delicious plastic bag recipes.

Quintin Schnehage Creative Lead

Sleeps in a coffin (we think) and sparkles in sunlight (yet to be tested). Produces amazing digital products (at night).

Ian Jamieson Tech Lead

Lives in the past and communicates with us through advanced time defying technology. Still manages to design and code most mortals under the table.

Alfredo Pantoja Developer

One of the longest standing members of the team and our go-to guy when things get complicated. We swear this isn't a mug shot (or at least he does).

Julian Schnehage Developer

Shreds on a guitar and is Andy Zaltzman punny. Keeps us entertained with a never ending stream of developer memes.

Wouter Burger Analyst

We think the movie Good Will Hunting was based on Wouter and suspect all his windows are covered in equations. He's proof that the matrix could be true.

Linda Lynch Marketing Coordinator

Despite being the 1939 extreme lawn bowls world champion, Linda doesn't allow this to go to her head. Ever humble, she coordinates our marketing like a well aimed holding shot that lands 1mm from the jack.

Gabi Falanga Writer

When not hiding in bushes to get exclusive shots of Peter Parker in his red spandex Zentai suit, Gabi can usually be found behind the typewriter producing sensational pieces for The Daily Bugle. Her side hustle is writing pieces for us.

Chris Technologist

Chris -if that's his real name- is tight on security. So cautious is he, that he refused to have his photo or surname published live. We're legitimately considering the possibility that he's actually a rogue fork of AlphaStar.

Christopher Mills SEO & Online Marketing

We found Chris naked in a basket on a river bank which was kinda odd since he was already a fully grown adult man with a wife and kid. We don't ask questions, especially since he's so damn good at SEO.

Jessamine County Task Manager

Alongside Jessica, Jessamine makes up the symbiotic hive mind we call "Jessus". Together they make sure that the girl in the red dress is in the right place at the right time and prevent glitching out black cats.
