Nichols Surf Shop
Nichols Surf Shop has been providing surf lessons to people of all ages and abilities since the 1980s and has developed a unique teaching routine that takes just two hours, with one hour on land and one in the surf.
Working on the art and layout for this website was pure joy, as the water is where my heart is.
Nichols also Rents AND Delivers SUPs, Kayaks, Bicycles & Surf Boards to make your play in New Smyrna Beach all the more enjoyable.
This website was pure delight to build, as the owners of Nichols are pure delight! You will love working with them.
They have also hired Florida Master Naturalists to lead ecotours for visitors and locals alike. Check it out today!
YOUTUBE CHANNEL COMING in 2019! Keep in touch.
Burban Laser, llc.
Chris Sherman, owner of Burban Laser, llc. came to me wanting a presence on the web. He has great ideas for the future of the website but we decided to build it in sections, over time, in an effor to keep the cost and the work manageable.
We will be adding a blog section, a project section, as well as online ordering with a spec upload.
If you live in the Central Florida area, Chris will meet with you in person and handle your digital printing needs one on one. If you are out of the area, he will work with you via phone or skype. Either way, your print needs will be handled with the greatest professional care.
Keep checking back, as their website will be constnatly growing and changing!
The Kiwanis Club of Randolph sponsors the annual Morristown CraftMarket. Anita Freeman & Geoff Price, representatives from the Kiwanis Club, asked Lois Reed Designs to design a website that would complement their show. Being an artist myself, and having participated in similar shows in past years, I was thrilled to take this project. The quality of the art accepted into the Morristown CraftMarket was a great inspiration when designing the look of the MACM website.
Updated responsive design is here!
Look forward to the “before & after” post, showing how Lois Reed Designs can rebuild your old website and make it responsive without losing its’ beauty!
Fruit of the Vine, Vestments
Colleen Hintz is a force of creativity!
I immediately fell in love with her work, and knew that I wanted to create sliding banners with slices of her vestments for each page,
as well as use a vestment as the background for the body.
The website was originally built in static HTML/CSS with Flash galleries. I recently customized a wordpress theme for her, to match her old site. Now her website works on touch tecnology and is responsive to different screens.
Enter and enjoy! Each piece is an amazing work of art!
Marine Discovery Center
The Marine Discovery Center, Discover Amazing … I have spent many hours giving eco-tours and volunteering for MDC. As a result, building this website was a labor of the heart.
With an emphasis on conservation, eco-tours and camps I coined the line Exploration | Conservation | Education to drive the UI (User Interface) of the website. This helped to highlight the key mission of MDC, as well as assisting the visitor in navigating to the sections they are interested in.
The images are a combination of photography taken by the MDC staff and stock photography, giving the website a personal touch & showcasing our local beauty.
Please take the time to read through the pages and learn about all of the incredible work MDC is doing for the environment!
Property Watch NSB
New Smyrna Beach is a “Snow-Bird” town. People are in and out for months at a time. For this reason, having someone to check on your home is essential.
Not only for break-ins, but also to keep tabs on termites, wind damage, any leaks or other unexpected issues that can arise in your absense.
Property Watch services the North Beach area of the island.
You can see from the design that they will greet you with smiles, and handle your home with tenderness.
The website for Project H20 is right where my heart is, here in the waters of Florida. Unfortunatly this website is no-more, due to lack of funding.
BUT, be sure to check – befloridiannow.org – for great information on protecting our beautiful Florida!
I love working on projects that help to educate people so that we can make this planet a healthy place for all of life.
Florida Living Shorelines
Anyone who has worked with me, or who knows me personally, will understand what a joy it was for me to manage & create this website project.
The subject of the health of our planet is near to my heart. Be sure to check out the hundreds of downloads in the “Helpful Documents & Links” section.
Art & Soul
Nitya Martino, a Certified Structural Yoga Therapist & Fine Artist, contacted Lois Reed Designs to build a website for her Healing Arts practice.
She wanted her website to evolve from her artwork, into a serene place for her to share information about her work in Meditation and Structural Yoga Therapy™. In addition to using Nitya’s artwork as the frame for the website, each section uses the corresponding Chakra color.
It was a delight to work with such a talented and dynamic person.
The website has since been redesigned, but I leave this sample here since I love what I created for her using her artwork.
Joint & Sole
Lisa Karuna Charney, a reflexologist and yoga teacher based in Midland Park, New Jersey and serving the northern New Jersey area, Contacted me to make a simple and clean website fore her. I was honered to be a part of her healing journey.
Her mission is to help you, your family, and those in your workplace improve your health and well-being through natural, alternative therapies.

Create Exceptional Leaders
When I see a website that I love, I look at the ‘source-code’ to check how it was made. Most of the time I find WordPress in the background. But, lately, I have been seeing SquareSpace behind the scenes. I called them and asked a lot of questions about being able to modify it with my own jquery & css. They told me it would not be a problem to do so.
Audrey Sloofman (President of Create Exceptional Leaders ) came to me, needing her website up and running for a conference in Switzerland the following week. I saw my opportunity to get my hands dirty with SquareSpace.
I was pleasantly surprised. Audrey needed some coaching with the back-end interface, and I was also able to do some customization for her. In the future we will focus on SEO and additional features for the CEL website. But, for this 5 day build, SquareSpace came to the rescue.
Linda Benanti Voice Studio
Not wanting to take time away from her work, she asked only for a presence on the web. We decided to create a 1 page website for her voice studio containing contact information and a bit about Linda herself. The video on the page shows the depths of Linda Benanti’s talent.
note: this is an older build, not yet coded for touch technologies. Check back in the future and we will have it updated!
Artist David Toporowski wanted to update his website, which had been built using a template that worked on the internet. Because the code was dated, I suggested that we build a new website, and use his art and his signature as the source of the website’s “look.”
David’s website is a perfect example of letting the client’s work design the site, rather than me, the website designer. Every visual element in this website is a piece of David’s artwork. When working with artists, there are times that I have to step back as a designer and simply put their work into XHTML code.
note: since the time of this build responsive touch technology has come out and this website has not been updated. I hope to be the announcing an update in the near future!
