With over 20 years experience, having worked with almost 400 small businesses, my passion is helping savvy entrepreneurs like you grow your business, one step at a time, using functional branding, beautiful graphics, and effective marketing methods specially formulated to attract your ideal clients.
I use a very specific but reliable process, formulated to help you reach your goals, one step at a time, at your own pace and according to your budget. My process is designed to either either guide you from absolute start-up all the way to small-biz stardom; or we’ll start from where you’re at right now, assess your goals and needs and move forward from there.
If you’re not 100% sure where to start or what you need to do to take the next step, grab my free Marketing Checklist below to do a self-assessment.

Who will you be working with?
Hey! I’m Jo, and you’ll be working with me.
Welcome to my cosmic universe of crazy cats, stardust, and coffee-inspired (but not too much) graphic design. Plus lots of other fun stuff to help you get excited about being your own boss. Browse my site, check out my portfolio, enjoy my freebies and blog posts and drop me an email if there’s something you’re looking for that you can’t find here. I add new content all the time so feedback and ideas are welcome.
“Jo always has the answer. We loved every moment of working with her. It was like unwrapping a new present each time.”
“My logo has brought me so many new clients as it represents what I believe in. Big thanks to Jo for her hard work and commitment in going the extra mile.”
“Jo was very easy to work with and spontaneous with her ideas and suggestions. Progress was quick and the mandate was finalised before we knew it.”

“When I first contacted Jo, I was very impressed with her enthusiasm and efficiency with what she does. I felt like she just ‘GOT IT’ with regards to the concept.”
Why should you work with me?
Design is my my passion and obsession and has been for as long as I can remember. Visual communication has fascinated me since around 1989 when I first realised it was ‘a thing’. In 1997 I skydived off the cliff to independent designerhood, initially to be a stay-at-home mum for my daughter but mostly because I’m a snarky, smart-ass, anti-social workaholic introvert who likes to spend the day in PJs – with cats, snacks and coffee. My passion is helping local and international small businesses become great through beautiful, niche-targeted design, affective brand implementation, and teaching DIY design and marketing.
What makes me different?
I like to share. And I understand that quality design costs money and that some business owners want to be able to edit their designs or create their own – to save time and money, and to have more control over their own marketing. Not only will I help you create and build your beautiful brand from nothing to something you’ll be proud of, I’ll also teach you how to use the design pieces I create for you to help you make more money through social media and list building. Plus, all my services are offered in bite-sized pieces that make them affordable and easy to implement at your own pace.
Where on earth am I?
I work from a bright and airy home studio in the leafy suburbs of Cowies Hill in Durban, on the east coast of sunny South Africa, along with a bunch of naughty cats and my hubby (slightly less naughty) who is an independent financial advisor.
Do I have a specific design style?
My design style is mostly clean, classic and minimalist because I believe that simplicity is what stands out most in this busy, noisy world of ours. Simplicity gives us focus, and clarity is important for clear communication of an ideal. I keep continuously aware of current trends in design but prefer to incorporate them in a way that won’t date my work. I’m also queen of flatlays and can teach you how to create your own unique, customised layouts to represent your brand.
Will we make a great team?
If my personality, philosophy and style resonate with you, you get how important great design is in brand visibility, and you know that reaching the right clients is imperative in increasing your turnover; or you’re excited to learn how to DIY your own designs and take control of your own aesthetic, but just need guidance – then I’d love to team up as your co-pilot and help you take your small business to the stars.
