Hi – I’m Jo – brand designer, intuition coach and author of The Intuition Journal. I’m the founder of Jo ChunYan, a brand design studio for conscious businesses. When I’m not staring lovingly at a pixel on my computer screen, I can be found obsessing over colour palettes, planning my next adventure in Japan, creating a new playlist for my yoga stretches, or cooking a delicious meal where I will use waaay too much kimchi.
