We are driven by communication that works and messages that move.
|Jo O & Co. is the team behind WordCrafting, a Montreal-based outfit that helps clients with their communication initiatives. We made our name by reliably meeting goals, respecting deadlines, and delivering with ingenuity and professionalism. |
When we take on a project, we dig deep, we troubleshoot, we facilitate. We rally wordsmiths, designers, technicians, and project sharp-shooters.
We build teams and build trust to boost brands and bring out everyone’s best.
We solve problems. We take initiative. We adapt. We create.
|Jo O has worked as a freelance translator, writer, copy editor, website developer and graphic designer for over 15 years in a wide range of industries. Right from the start, her career was driven by a passion to help others be well-understood. Her time in college and university studying anthropology, linguistics, pedagogy, literature, translation, and management was all about exploring the nature, the art, and the business of human communication.|
|“Being heard and understood is at the heart of communication. This means making messages captivating and engaging but above all it’s about eliminating the obstacles that stand between your message and your audience. Making the message easy to understand is fundamental. Making it compelling makes it memorable. Communicating successfully is as much about understanding your audience as it is about understanding the purpose of your message.” – Jo O.|
|Jo O has been fueled by a great wonder for “messages that move.” This is what drives her passion to understand how communication can go wrong, how it can be improved (her specialty!), and just how powerful a well-developed and well-delivered message can be.|
