The consistent quality of her work have allowed us to stand out from our competitors

When we first considered using Jo to help us improve the presentation of our products, we were very impressed by the evidently extensive portfolio of design work she has completed for major businesses. The work she has done for us has reflected her level of experience and she has also proved to be not just imaginative but also very inspiring for us as we work through our sales process. Her imaginative ideas and the consistent quality of her work have allowed us to stand out from our competitors in a way that has been very beneficial for our business. In practice, we find her not just easy to work with and approachable but actually fun and we always look forward to our meetings. Overall, we find her not the least bit intimidating to work with, despite her immense experience. She is able to work with a very wide range of media and has a very good awareness of the latest technologies and how to approach the use of these in promoting our business. We have also found her to be very generous in sharing her knowledge and insights. What Jo does seems to work out well every time. Jo is an evidently true creative of some considerable standing.

Nick Edmunds - Technical Director, Railton Consultants Ltd.

We couldn’t have asked for a better design

Jo did a great job designing our new business website providing support and advice each step of the way. The site was built quickly and efficiently; we have received nothing but compliments regarding it since. We couldn’t have asked for a better design, Jo took time to understand our business and created a site that met our client base, both trade and domestic customers. We would recommend Jo and her creative design to anyone requiring a professional design to meet their business needs.

Simon Raven - Director, Three Piece Joinery

I cannot recommend Jo highly enough

If I ever get asked to recommend someone who designs websites, business cards etc. I have no hesitation. Jo Byrne is the most creative, perceptive graphic designer I know. A true artist who took my initial ideas and then created not only visually beautiful designs but then transformed them into modern, efficient tools to effectively market my business. I credit Jo in a large part for the continued growth and success of my business. The fact that Jo resides and works in the UK and I in Canada didn’t factor into the equation at all! She has the amazing ability to design and brand your business so it reflects who you are as a person/company as much as what service/products you provide. This is particularly important to me as I had previously tried working with other designers to no avail. I cannot recommend Jo highly enough.

Suzanne Sutherland - Founder, Suzanne Sutherland Thermographic Imaging

Has exceeded our expectations

Jo’s exciting and innovative re-branding of our marketing material and website has exceeded our expectations. It has helped enormously with our marketing strategy, raised our profile and is complimented by colleagues in the industry as well as our visitors. She is brilliant to work with, constantly creative, sympathetic to our product, thoughtful and efficient and most importantly has driven more visitors to our website and Hever Castle

Ann Watt - Ex Marketing Director, Hever Castle

I am extremely happy with everything she has done for me

Jo took my very basic brief for a website and developed it into a fantastic and unique marketing tool. She understood what I wanted – even though I wasn’t sure myself! Jo designed and created my site to appeal to my clientele perfectly. Every new client that has come to me has been partly because of my “professional website”. Jo also designed various marketing materials to help promote my new business which all looked great and was in sync with the website design but still stood out in their own way. Jo is a pleasure to work with and gets her ideas across in a diplomatic and professional manner. Her confidence and experience shine through and I am extremely happy with everything she has done for me. All her work was done within my time constraints (with plenty to spare!) and she responded to any email or message very quickly. I will always recommend Jo and have done already.

Caroline Humphreys - Owner, Hone Male Grooming

Thank you for creating our fantastic new website

Jo thank you for creating our fantastic new website. You spent time with myself to discuss what was required for the site and you came up with some ideas, which has without doubt enhanced our vision. It is easy to navigate and captures our setting completely. New parents have commented that they visited the site before enquiring for a place for their child. Jo continues to be of great assistance to me, through her continued dedication in supporting myself, the setting and the website. Thank you once again.

Vicki Richardson - Play Leader Manager, Leonard Stanley Early Years

Always one step ahead of the game

Since my arrival at Hever Castle in 2012, Jo Mew Creative has provided an invaluable support to the sales team in The Astor Wing of Hever Castle. Jo's creative flair and commitment, often working to short lead deadlines, has played a huge part in the delivery of our marketing plan. Always one step ahead of the game, all credit must go to Jo for her dedication and proactive approach to her involvement with Hever Castle.

Kate Rowbottom - Sales Manager, Hever Castle

She excels on every project

Working with Jo is always a pleasure. She is detail focussed, uber efficient and manages your expectations around any brief that she might be working on for you. Her 'out of the box' thinking is hugely valuable, meaning she rarely delivers a pedestrian approach to a creative brief, but rather seeks to challenge a brief to deliver a superb communication solution. Having worked with Jo dozens of times, I can say categorically that she excels on every project. She's also a thoroughly lovely individual too!

Jonathan Lindon - Chief Executive Officer, Digital Futures

Jo has to be one of the most creative people I know

Jo has to be one of the most creative people I know. Her enthusiasm and positive attitude is infectious. She's incredibly qualified, her years of experience means she has worked on just about every type of project and has been an amazing mentor to me. Jo is definitely someone I respect and look up to as a designer. She's a great problem solver too and definite creative thinker. She's full of ideas and bursting for them to come to life. What's great about Jo is that she's not only an amazing creative but also has amazing technical skills - this means she can carry a project from start to finish. She knows what she's doing and completes every job to the highest standard. I feel privileged to have worked with Jo and have explored more creative endeavours because of her influence.

Never failed to deliver first class creative ideas and concepts

I employed Jo as a Senior Designer at CDD. Jo never failed to deliver first class creative ideas and concepts.that. Always prepared to challenge thinking, her work not only hit the creative spot but also had the intelligence and commerciality to work in the real world. Jo was a great team member and encouraged those around her. Clients also enjoyed working with Jo. An asset to any business - agency or client side.

Steve Radjen - Client Partner at Lab Digital Agency

Hi Jo, I’ve just collected the posters and flyers, they look amazing. John Gason of Zeta Printing was very complimentary of your work. These photos convey such a vibrant atmosphere of the Goodwill. Thank you so much for catching all these moments. I’ve received so many positive comments about the day which is great.
