about jo o & co

Jo O & Co. is the team behind WordCrafting, a Montreal-based outfit that helps clients with their communication initiatives. It made its name by reliably meeting goals, meeting deadlines, and delivering with ingenuity and professionalism. We are driven by communication that works.

To get there, we dig, we troubleshoot, we facilitate. We rally clients around wordsmiths, designers, technicians, and project sharp-shooters. We solve problems. We take initiative. We adapt. We create. We build teams and build trust to boost brands and bring out everyone’s best.

Or as we like to say, we’re crafty.
