"We appreciate the value of personal recommendations for something as important as your website project. We are proud of our work and commitment to our clients. Please take a moment to read the comments from some of our clients. These are REAL people who depend on their sites for success. Don't hesitate to contact them personally." ~ Jay Thistle
Thistle Website Design produced a beautiful and easy to operate website for our Age-Friendly Orillia Advisory committee. "Sunny, bright, easy to navigate and read", were comments from our members. Jay integrated original and new information seamlessly and responded quickly to requested changes with a positive and friendly attitude. She was accurate, intuitively knew what we wanted and offered experienced advice. Jeff offered valuable technical assistance. We are extremely pleased with the design and thank Jay, Jeff and the team for a job very well done! Thank you so much from all of us.
After moving my practice and stepping out on my own, I was terrified of the thought of starting up a website to promote my business. As a Regulated Health Professional, being tech savvy was never a top priority. To be completely honest, all things 'technology' scares me to death!
Working with Jay was amazing! She was incredible in easing all of my fears and anxieties. She was always reassuring and happily walked me through even the simplest of tasks. She took the time to explain everything she needed from me and was always available to answer questions or concerns. Jay created a website that is user friendly and simple to navigate, which was very important to me. Her creativity came through in all her 'gentle' suggestions when it came to colour schemes, logo and images used throughout my website.
I couldn't be happier with the end result and highly recommend working with Jay Thistle and her team. She helped me take my business to another level, and did so painlessly! She is a true professional and passionate about her work. Her knowledge and creativity is top notch and she is so easy to work with, regardless of your background.
Jay is creative, reliable, accessible and open-minded. A pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her services.

I highly endorse Jay and Rich Thistle, and Jeff Stewart, for their amazing website design work and vision. They are super creative, knowledgeable and skilled in building innovative websites for today’s world. Jay, with whom I worked in close contact for almost two months on our website, is an absolute pleasure to work with and is so receptive to suggestions and changes. I also really appreciated her humour and extremely patient and encouraging one-on-one lessons when she taught me how to make my own back-end modifications and add blog posts. I applaud Rich for his talent and persistence in designing our five book covers! We are so very pleased with our final results and the fact that we are continuing our contact over the years to come as our website is being hosted by this acclaimed company. We highly recommend Thistle Website Design for your website and creative design needs!
When looking to update our website I really wanted to use the Joomla platform as this is what I was comfortable with. Jay made the transition painless! We also had to do some customizing of the template and the team worked effortlessly to ensure we were happy with the end result. Absolutely LOVE working with Jay and her team. Not to mention that if ever there is a 'glitch', she is there to answer our calls! I HIGHLY recommend Jay! Now, I don't know what I would do without her.

Jay Thistle and her design team had my book’s website ready to go back in 2009, to accept online pre-orders. Then my freelance book designer’s computer crashed, losing all the files with no back-ups. To make a long story short, by mid-2017 my book was finally going through the design stage. I contacted Jay about updating the website. As you can imagine, there had been a lot of developments in website technology since 2009. Jay and her team were able to re-design the site and had it ready well before the book finally went to print. Since then Jay and her team have been quick to respond and deploy any updates I have requested as well as designing a brand new site for another book I released in 2020. I highly recommend the team at Thistle Website Design.John C. Corrigan, Author/Historian CanadaThe Red Knight
I really appreciated the fact that Jay worked with my vision of how I wanted my site to look – my experience with web designers is that they often get attached to their own vision and don’t listen. Jay listened! She assisted me with a simple structure as I like to keep costs down and do my own updates – but it gets the job done and attracts customers from quite a distance. In fact I get compliments on how pleasant the site is to navigate. Another plus is the prompt response to questions and requests. All in all, a happy partnership!Kate Harries, Elmvale OntarioReturn of the Native
When our website crashed, we Googled looking for a website designer and found Thistle Site Design / Joomla Specialists. Jay answered the phone and we immediately knew we had found the right person to help us design a new website. Jay's sense of humour, easygoing personality and creative artistic eye, made our website experience a pure joy. The total opposite of our last website designer experience. We highly recommend Jay, Rich and Jeff. We can't say enough great things about them. Jay would immediately answer our emails, and I enjoyed getting her messages. They would make me grin and I wished we lived closer so we could meet. Our daughter very much appreciated Rich, who is a visual artist and graphic designer, talking to her about her artwork, and passing along his many years of experience and wisdom in the art business.Judy Bowcott, Alberta CanadaWineglass Ranch
I am thrilled with the results. Right from our first meeting they instantly understood what I had envisioned. Within a short period of time they delivered a sleek, professional website that has separated me from my competitors. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for website design services.

Great (SEO) Search Engine Optimization. Patients compliment me on the website every day.

Working with the team at Thistle Site Design / Joomla Specialists was an absolute pleasure.

Their level of professionalism and creativity is astounding and refreshing. I eagerly recommend Thistle Site Design to anyone who requires a beautiful and functional presence on the web.

I highly recommend Thistle Site Design. Jay and her team were able to quickly and efficiently take some very rudimentary ideas that I had and run with them to create a website that is everything I had hoped for and much, much more. It has generated nothing but highly positive feedback. Not only am I extremely satisfied with the end result, but Jay was able to make the process smooth and completely painless. The Thistle Site Design team’s blend of technical expertise and creative genius, together with unparalleled response time and patience, cannot, in my opinion, be surpassed.
