Meet the “J” in Jay Designs

Janet Edkins is the mastermind and chief coder behind Jay Designs. Born and raised in Sheffield, England, Janet moved to the US in 1998 with the love of her life and new hubby Chris. Initially based in Dallas, Janet passed the time getting an American education and falling in love again, this time with HTML and website design. Creativity and Structure in the same elements. Aaaah. Finally, left and right brain synergy fulfilled. HTML and Content Management Systems have moved on significantly in the last 13 years, but Janet’s idea of “fun” is and always will be creating website designs and putting them into code. Janet’s refreshing WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) approach to business is her trademark, as is making entrepreneurs from all walks of life very, very happy.

Are we the right web design company for you? Maybe…maybe not! Here’s how to find out.

Do Your Homework.

Before you decide on a Knoxville website company to design or re-vamp your website, make sure you ask plenty of questions to get a feel for who they are.

  • How do they react to you, your business and your brand?
  • Are they supportive of your needs?
  • Do they work to help you figure out what you don’t know?
  • Most importantly: Do they listen?


What is your business? What does your business need? What do you want? Who is your target audience? What is your budget? Taking the time to answer these questions allows us to explain (using language that matches your GQ (Geek Quotient) what you need to know so that your website can work best for your business growth potential. It’s your website and you have a crucial role to play in how it develops.

At Jay Designs we believe in really listening; it’s the only way to get down to the nitty gritty information needed to give you the best advice regarding your needs, wants and budget.

Life throws special challenges at the smaller business. Websites can be one of those if you don’t have a dedicated and qualified web specialist to guide you. You might know you need a website, but not have a clue where to start, what to expect or how much it will cost. Or perhaps you already have a site, but you feel it isn’t performing as it should. After all, the site might actually be performing as well as it can considering its design.

Because we work exclusively in the web design and management arena and are a small business ourselves, we fully understand your need to make your online presence a success. We can appreciate the frustration that comes from budget constraints and wasted time and money. That’s precisely why we focus on creating customized websites that are reasonably priced, absolutely beautiful, fully functional and capable of being found by the search engines.
