Your Business Deserves
A Beautiful Website

The Freshwater Portfolio

Meet Your Web Guru

Freshwater Designs is a one-man web development and design shop run by me, Mike Lazarus and my dog Shay. I've built tons of Shopify websites for clients big and small across almost every industry imaginable, amassing a wealth of knowledge on all things e-commerce.

I'll be with you every step of the way - from our first phone call to launching your store to international growth. By staying small and solo, I can deliver an unparalleled personal experience and create long-lasting relationships with my clients.

I don't want to be just your web developer and designer. I want to be a trusted partner and resource for you and your business. I know the pains and struggles that come with launching your own company - I'm a small business owner myself - so I do everything I can to make the journey as easy as possible for you.

Shoot me an email and I'd love to find a time to hop on a call and learn more about how I can be of help.


Mike is terrific. I searched for a one-person shop so that I would get a great deal of attention during the creation and launch of my new website. Mike over delivered. He was always available and quickly responding to my endless list of changes and updates. I highly recommend him without reservation.

Can't say enough good things about Freshwater. I've had the opportunity to work with several Shopify Experts, as well as, some not so experts via freelance sites. No one has yet to compare with the service, creativity and responsiveness we got from these guys. They exceeded expectations in every way!

FRESH! Forward-thinking, responsive, and customer-service oriented. In the arena of online consulting, most firms seem to have lost the personal touch. Freshwater Designs is the exception. Highly recommend!!

Easy to work with, fast, great attention to detail. Good all around - and aligned perfectly for our brand.
