FXSheikh was recommended from the consultants we used for our rebranding. From the beginning at the consultation they asked us deep questions about our business. They understood the vision I had for my business

About top ryde barbershop

The Challenge

The site was looking dated, with the design needing to be modernised as part of a business rebrand

The owner Sam was happy with the business being brought in by the initial site, and the google presence, getting customers from over 50km from their store. But he wanted to improve the design whilst maintaining the existing simplicity

As part of a rebranding strategy, where the business wanted to price according to the premium service they were providing, they wanted a clean and modern design to reflect their new branding.

The Solution

The team conducted workshops to establish the customer journey, built paper prototypes, and wireframes to inform the final clean design

FXSheikh ran an in depth workshop with the client, getting to understand what the vision for the business was, what they wanted their ideal customer to look like and take away from the site. We went through our development process, designing on paper and post it notes and creating low fidelity wireframes. We also decided that we wanted to retain the top 3 position in search results on google.

As part of the build process we used html, css, and tailwindcss for design, combined with depolyment on the netlify platform so the site would be served closest to users coming to the site.


Increased traffic by 350% and revenue increase of over 10%

The client was extremely satisfied with the result, with a top 2 position in search results for barber in the area, the site also saw an increase of 350% of monthly active users. The owner saw an increase of over 10% in incremental revenue due to the site redesign.
