in our clients.
We work with and have worked for some amazing brands from the professional sector, agribusiness, manufacturing, retail to constructions and quite a few industries in between.
Why is it so important
to believe in our clients?
Success is more than an outcome, it’s the journey you choose and the choices you make that is.
Who do I choose
to work with?
Trusted and trustworthy entrepreneurs & leaders who work collaboratively.
I love partnering with fun, passionate people who dream of impacting the world and the people’s lives they serve. It’s fulfilling when together we’re crafting a legacy for the world to enjoy.
If you’re only looking to speed date (essentially cheap and cheerful) without investing in a creative partnership for long term results, that’s ok. Let’s still be acquaintances – we’re just not the right creative partner for you.
We love our clients and believe in their vision. To achieve effective brand positioning and communications, we need to understand your future horizons, which makes you different and translates it into a meaningful experience. Just like great food, marketing results take time.
I only work with people who;
- Choose to put their customers at the centre of everything they do
- Are fun, visionary and purpose-driven
- Embrace technology and smarter approaches to doing business
- Choose to do things once, and do it right
- Value creativity and creative thought
- Value partnerships and deep-rooted relationships
- Honour their commitments
"Jo and the team at JFM were amazing to deal with and are very professional. Having never done anything like this before, they made the process so easy.
It didn’t matter that we farm in the North Island, they took the time to ask questions to get to know us, our family and the business. With emails, skype, and telephone conversations, these were made to look like it was no hassle for the team.
The ideas they came up with were very exciting for us. JFM took us to another level and we are getting many positive comments. They got us excited about promoting our business."
"The JFM team have consistently supported our small marketing team here at Alliance – they take the stress out of our job; nothing is ever too much trouble when working under pressure.
JFM make time to talk to us whether in person, email or on the phone, and we know we can get in touch with them any time to talk through projects.
JFM offer fresh thinking and are never short of ideas; they really know their stuff and are passionate about what they do.
We know and trust their work, and are cost-effective, making them the A-team any business would want to work with.
We’re happy that we can rely on JFM who will go above and beyond, and strive to complete work to the highest standards, every time."
“Like any project, there are many people that contribute behind the scenes and we’d especially like to say thanks to Jo and the JFM Creatives team for their help in pulling it all together in their usual efficient fashion with exceptional attention-to-detail. We’re stoked with the final result. A pleasure to work with as always."
"Jo and the team were efficient motivated and only too happy to help.
They showed great insight into understanding and thought when designing a Logo & Branding for my new business.
I thoroughly enjoyed the process and their professional approach. I would highly recommend them to other potential clients- new brand; rebrand and all things in-between!"
"We have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with Jo Foster and her dedicated and creative team for many years.
When we were first introduced to Jo and her team, our branding and marketing was out of date and lacking any real ‘punch’; with the creative and innovative work that JFM were able to produce, the NZTS brand both domestically and internationally grew substantially.
Interestingly as part of this development in our branding our competitors in our Industry took note and were so impressed by this work that in 2015 when we sold the domestic part of NZTS, our new owners also engaged with JFM to create a marketing and design platform for the promotion of the dual branding.
We have found JFM to be extremely reliable, professional and have provided a creative and innovative look to our branding which has inspired others. It would be fair to say that partnering up with JFM in this manner has increased the brand value of NZTS, which we are so very grateful for.
Jo has surrounded herself with likeminded professionals that form part of her team, all of which have at some stage have contributed tremendously towards our growth and development as a Company.
We would without hesitation recommend and endorse the team at JFM and the value they will most definitely add to any organisations desire for brand awareness, growth and reputation.
Jo thank you so much for all your support over the years and we certainly look forward to working with you and JFM in the years to come."
"We definitely found working with Jo and Sam, such an easy experience and you really took on board exactly what we were trying to convey. I did really enjoy the questionnaire also, we thought it was just so thorough. At the beginning of the process, we didn't really have any idea of what we wanted and the questionnaire enabled us to think of our brand and logo, from different avenues and perspectives. And we are just so over the moon with the result.
Thanks again for all of your help and expertise!"
"We have found JFM to be creative, responsive and genuinely interested in our business. We always enjoy working with the team at JFM."
The questions you might think,
but don't ask.
We all make mistakes, or don’t ask the questions because we “think” they’re dumb. Around here there are no dumb questions because we know from experience if there’s uncertainty for one, there might be for others.
JFM Creatives have worked with every type of client, from owner-operators to large national co-ops. We can work with those who are up for big things and need marketing and design support, because we’re flexible in our approach and can easily scale up and down as required to meet a clients objectives.
We work alongside businesses on both single projects like websites and e-commerce stores through through to branding projects and on-going annual marketing activities and execution.
For new clients, we first meet often via a Zoom call for a 25min insight session to see if we’re the right fit for each, and then we follow the steps outlined below and will kick into things once your project has been signed off and project deposit paid.
Yes of course, we’re family working along side businesses who have multiple creative partners, what we do require though is clear expectations and boundaries for us all to do our very best work.
We also work along larger companies who have an in-house marketing department and may require specific skills such as graphic and digital design or website services. We scale up and adapt our skills reflective our your organisations marketing needs.
