Our director and designer, Jo Wood, founded Joanne Wood Design Ltd in 2006.
Jo Wood BSc (Hons) undertook her design degree at the University of East London. She began her career as a product and graphic designer with Alba plc/Harvard International, a position she was offered on the strength of work she displayed at a London design show.
For over 8-years Jo worked in the Design & Communications Centre at Alba, where she created the brand identities, brochure designs and packaging designs for their umbrella of brands. These included Alba Radio, Breville, Breville Antony Worrall Thompson, Bush Radio, Carl Lewis Fitness, Dirt Devil, Goodmans, Grundig, Hinari Appliances, JCB Power Products, Ministry of Sound Audio, Nicky Clarke Electric, Power Devil and Roadstar ... to name just a few! She also created the design work for the company's charity the Helene Harris Memorial Trust (HHMT), later re-named as Ovarian Cancer Action.
In 2006 Jo decided to branch out and launch her own company, Joanne Wood Design Ltd. Having built up excellent relationships with her clients, many of them – including Ovarian Cancer Action – chose to continue working with her in her new venture, and are still valued clients today. When Jo launched Joanne Wood Design her mission was to create a design agency that, although small in size, would be run to the same professional standards expected from a large design agency, just without the cost and lack of individuality. These values, along with trust and loyalty, are key to the continued success of her company.
Starting her own company also allowed Jo to do something that had always been an ambition, to teach design. Jo taught graphic design at BTEC level and her work, and community projects, have been featured in the local press. The success of her company meant that sadly Jo could not continue this work and she now focuses full-time on running Joanne Wood Design.
