What clients say



We were looking for a innovative, fresh branding and Fern Studios absolutely delivered! Jo absolutely got what we were looking for and brought to us a number of concept ideas that all would have been worthy of our final design choice. Everything was delivered on time and far exceeded our expectations. Would absolutely recommend Jo to anyone looking bring their ideas to life seamlessly.

Jo’s ability to translate my vision for my new business into a strong, fresh and vibrant logo was superb. She brought together all the elements of the brand, colour palette, imagery and font perfectly. Without Jo’s creative input on the brand look and feel my new business would not have an amazing new website to showcase. I can not recommend Jo highly enough.


Jo was brilliant to work with from start to finish. I needed lots of ideas and advice as I had no experience of marketing or branding, and she really helped me think about what I wanted and what would work. She came up with three very different treatments, all of which I loved, and then was happy to make lots of adjustments. I was thrilled with the final results and can't recommend her highly enough.
