My name is Jo Klima. Art is my mission.
As a shy little seedling, I discovered I could map out an adventurous world of infinite possibilities with my sketchbook and paints. From there, the rush of building something beautiful from a mixture of creative inspirations caught hold of me... and refused to let go.
That’s the rich soil I’ve been growing in ever since.
After graduating Uni with a Bachelor’s degree in design, I spent four years earning my stripes at a studio that catered to big-time corporations. While the buttoned-up work I did wasn’t quite my cup of tea, I learned the finer points of clean & functional design. I taught myself web development, and curated my own methods for pinpointing the look & vibe my clients craved.
So, with my roots firmly in the earth, I kicked off this solo project in 2008. Here, my work is feminine, finely detailed, and organic. I’m a gardener of artistic delight, a pruner of overarching concepts and ideas, and caretaker of your unique aesthetic essence.
Translation: I get you. And with the gorgeous design identity I’ll craft for your brand, we’ll guarantee the rest of the world does too.
Welcome to The Darling Tree. Won’t you sit in the shade a while?
All art is deeply personal. Great art is a mirror for the soul. It’s not a fad that fizzles, or gets stale over time.
Why should your brand’s design be any different?
I specialize in hand-crafting one-of-a-kind logos, blogs & websites that are unmistakably, definitively YOU. Your ideas, energy and spirit - brought to digital life through colours, patterns, illustrations, and textures.
So our journey begins with a stroll through your inspirational treasure chest. I tease out all the bits and pieces you love, connect them, and flesh them out in a way that makes you stand up & shout “YES. That’s me. That’s the way I need to be seen.”
The result? A design you’ll continue to love for years to come - because it’s the true representation of who you are.
Important: I believe in the power of doing one thing, and doing it well. I pour endless hours into my designs, and meticulously strive to balance even the tiniest details perfectly.
In order to focus all my attention on bringing your ideas to life, I no longer offer a la carte projects or coding services.
However, I’m happy to recommend you to a skilled developer on my radar (when they’re available)!Send an Enquiry Learn more about my offerings
