About Freshwater Designs

Freshwater Designs is a one-man web development and design shop run by me, Mike Lazarus. 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 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.

6 Testimonials


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


Michael at Freshwater Designs was surely an expert on Shopify. He answered all of our questions and set up the site to be exactly how we wanted it. It was an amazing experience to work with him! Would recommend him to anyone who is looking to build a site. Cheers.


Freshwater gets the job done!

I got a great price (several thousand dollars cheaper than what other experts were charging) for a beautiful website - what else could you want?

Thanks Freshwater!!


If you're looking for a talented web developer and designer who's also fun and easy to work with, look no further than Mike and Freshwater! Could not recommend them high enough!!


I'm a notoriously difficult client, but Mike amazed me every step of the way. From my first call with him, I knew I was in good hands. He took the time to understand my business and unique needs, crafted a custom game-plan, and delivered on-budget and ahead of schedule. I wish all my experiences with developers would be this fantastic!

Will certainly use Freshwater for any future projects!!


Simply the best! I've dealt with a lot of developers and designers, and now of them can compare to Mike. He's talented, fast, fairly priced, and incredibly personal. In addition to the kick-ass site he built for me, he's provided tons of business advice at no extra charge. I'm scared to think where my company would be without Mike and Freshwater.
