About Famous 

At Famous our mission is to empower anyone to create a beautiful shopping experience. We create the most innovative technology that combines the best marketing and design software that can be integrated anywhere. Our designs will power commerce on every platform in the world. If you can imagine it, we will help you create it and share it with the world. One idea turned into a beautiful design at a time. 

Famous was launched in 2011 as a Creative Studio and we quickly realized that the technology needed to design online was not available. After many years and an amazing amount of experience working with some of the world's best brands in the world, we launched Famous Pro in 2018. Since then our mission has been to help businesses of all sizes create beautiful content that powers your shopping experience. Recently we have focused on more tools that allow for seamless integration of our platform into every domain in the world.

Famous is a mobile eCommerce marketing platform that empowers merchants to captivate their customers through immersive, high-impact, mobile shopping experiences. We make it easy to quickly create and customize landing pages with little to no technical expertise required. We believe that the future of eCommerce is mobile, and we strive to give brands the ability to target their unique audiences, cultivate a deeper connection with their customers and sell their products in the best way possible.
