About Nicki

Nicki Lloyd - Creative Director

Nicki Lloyd, website designer, bayside

I have lived in the Bayside suburbs of Melbourne my entire life. I am a website designer and co-director of Hub Business Solutions which runs the successful Bayside Community Hub Business Directory.

I spent a number of years working in corporate, mainly within printing services divisions. This gave me insight into workflow, design and assisting in the development of internal technology solutions. I took time off when I had my daughter and further developed my skills by editing and managing a community newsletter and website.

In December 2014 I decided to take the plunge and create my own website design business, Mara Communications. My middle name is Mara and it is a nod to my Latvian roots on my mother’s side. 

Since launching Mara Communications my portfolio has steadily grown. My trademark is clean, fresh sites that are easy to navigate, whether on an iPhone, a computer or any device in-between.

When I am not building websites I enjoy time with my family, watching quality (most of the time) television, being tortured by my personal trainers and being an active member of the local community. Also coffee – I can’t function without my morning latte!  In my younger days I completed a honours degree in social sciences and a graduate diploma in human rights law. I love learning and am so grateful that I can continue to develop and learn new skills as part of running my business.

I live with my husband, daughter and Ruby the dog.
