Jo spent fifteen years in publishing mostly in freelance and consultancy roles. She has always combined her love of the creative publishing process with a passion for clarity, structure and organisation.
It was during a complex software project for HarperCollins that Jo identified that she could successfully combine her publishing skills with her programming skills to create websites. She is a big fan of concrete5 and loves writing clean and concise CSS.
She also enjoys short term production and project management contracts. Clients include project manager at Redstone Consultants, project analysis at Westerlands Stud, merchandise buyer for Gumtree's 10th anniversay and production manager at Blackwoods Distillers.
Jo was born and raised in Africa (she attended boarding school in Cumbria from the age of nine). After university her travels took her to Hong Kong where she worked as Editorial Director for Action Asia Magazine and New York where she was a publishing consultant at Vivre Catalogue.
She enjoys collecting shells on the beach with Emily and exploring London with Alex.
Since Alex passed away, Jo runs madeforspace alone, outsourcing work to specialists as needed. Her daughter, her family and clients give her the inspiration and strength she needs to continue developing the company's portfolio of work.
