About ME

I’ve spent my career doing what I love

Jo Burton

It’s fair to say that I’m a little bit obsessed with words – saying them out loud, listening to them, writing them, reading them, editing them and then editing them again. My love affair with language began when I was a child, having far too much to say at primary school, followed by most of my teenage years spent reading with a torch at night when I should have been asleep!

I’m grateful every day that something I’ve always loved doing turned into a career, and I was lucky enough to spend many years fine-tuning my skills in some amazing corporate marketing roles. In 2011 I felt ready to take that leap and make more of a difference, so I decided to go freelance and started Project B – and I’ve never really looked back.

When I’m not working I am kept busy looking after two lively boys, my husband and our pet pooch Poppy. Being a homebird at heart I enjoy the simple things in life, spending time with friends and family, cooking great food and having a good old natter with a brew.

I truly believe a good first impression counts and I’d like to help you make one too

“All my life I’ve looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.”

– Ernest Hemingway

Why Work With Me?

I absolutely love what I do and still get inspired each time a new project comes along. I feel very lucky that each client brings something fresh and new, and with this comes great job satisfaction.

Working with local businesses is so rewarding, and I always feel very privileged to help people tell their story. Providing a unique and personalised service to each client is really important to me and this is why I’m proud that most of my work comes by recommendation from others.


VMC have worked with Jo for 4 years and in that time she has provided invaluable Marketing support for the business. She provides a weekly in-house service at our head office which has really helped her become part of the team and understand the business inside and out, which in turn reflects in the high quality of content she creates for us.

Jo is friendly, flexible and easy to work with and has fitted into the team wonderfully. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

Mrs Gamechanger

Jo is my go-to creative and technical guru! She transformed my social media posts and presentations by training me on Canva. Jo is extremely patient, kind and went the extra mile to ensure I was happy with everything that I had been trained on.

She empowered me to go forward and apply my new knowledge effectively to enhance my communication with my current and future clients. Jo is in essence a creative and marketing game changer.
