Jo is genuinely creative. She has an extraordinary sense for straight, clear design. This is based on experience and curiosity. She never stops grazing the design world and accumulating vast amounts of research. This results in her being always up to date to latest trends and directions especially in Graphic Design. She is keen on detail and will not stop enhancing her work till it's perfect.

It's also fun to have J. as a work mate. And she's got the overview. So if you are lost in your Photoshop or in finding the light at the end of the work load tunnel, she's the one who will help you out.
