Jo delivered an awesome brand and helped me kick off my business dreams.

Jo O'Connor was born and bred in the Hunter Valley. She began her career in graphic design, working first as a designer and as then as an art director at screen and offset printers. As technology and design have changed, Jo's technical abilities have grown to match them.

Jo's skills were fine-tuned in London, where she worked at a major magazine publisher, and added management, business analytics, workflow consultation and software training to her arsenal.

Since returning to Australia, Jo has been part of a successful branding and design agency based in Newcastle, NSW. From her experience, Jo could see that there was a need for simpler design and business solutions for small businesses and start-ups. What's more, small businesses were gravitating to Jo to get the help and advice they needed. So, in 2016 Ask Jo was created, offering easy-to-understand packages at affordable prices.
