INTRODUCTION

I’m Bittersweet (Jo). I’m a free thinking, creatively charged, super enthusiastic designer who doesn’t stop working until the magic happens. I enjoy interesting conversations and meeting inspiring, imaginative people… almost as much as I enjoy hanging out with my parrot smiley

DESIGN WITH HEART (and brains)

I really do love what I do and I’m devoted to making sure you love it too. I’ve created and evolved countless identities, from small startups to large companies, enabling businesses to stand up and stand out – turning ideas into extraordinary success.

ACHIEVING GREATNESS

I’m not out to conquer the world, I just create great work in partnership with great people. Helping them grow their businesses and build their brands. I work closely with clients to ensure they receive a personal service and direct communication. Making you look good is my job. So get ready to smile when you see the results.

NICK DUFFIELD

CEO – RI Australia Group

Without doubt, one of the most gifted and enterprising South Australian designers, Jo Muscat provides her clients with a level of professionalism, capability and flexibility to ensure that any assignment that she is commissioned to complete is delivered in an impeccable way; both from an aesthetic and on-time viewpoint. If you are looking to partner with a designer who is in equal measures polished, productive and positive then I unreservedly endorse Bitter sweet’s principal designer Jo Muscat with my highest commendation.

SAMANTHA BADCOCK

Director – Hunter Careers

Joanne Muscat, principal of Bittersweet has worked closely with Hunter Careers since inception. Creating a complete corporate identity for the company, including website, she has demonstrated an exceptional ability to take on and develop a brief to create an identity which perfectly conveys the essence of our brand.

Joanne’s efforts are highly appreciated by the Hunter Careers’ directorial team and we are strong advocates of her work.

EUGENE LEPORE

Managing Director – Symetry Cutters

When I met Jo from Bittersweet, I knew she was going to deliver outstanding work and that she did. She was very easy to talk to and understood exactly what I was after. Her style is simple, stylish, innovative and without clutter.

My only issue with Jo as I have told her on several occasions, is that she always gives me at least four or five options and they are all so damn good that it makes my life hard as I can only choose one. What a nice problem to have.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this young vibrant designer as I know she will deliver.

SUE McKAY

Director – Kick It To Me

Initially Jo Muscat of Bittersweet assisted us in getting our existing website looking ‘sharp’. She did such good work in a great turn-around time that we quickly entrusted her with the design of an entirely new website, business cards, labels and more.

Jo listens, interprets and produces great graphic design accordingly. Furthermore, her eye for detail and ability to visualize what the client’s needs are, means that she is able to ask the right questions before the work is done, saving time and money. We cannot fault the communication and service. It is 100%!

TIM WILLIAMS

Photographer – williamstudio

The design and communication skills of Jo Muscat are second-to-none. This pocket dynamo is alive with ideas and visions we hadn’t considered. The expanded vision and direction Jo brings to concepts and projects has helped us to re-invent and remain desirable and relevant to our target market.

In 20 years of close association with Jo, she never tires of our brainstorming and thorough questioning, helping us not only with cutting-edge design ideas, but business advice, being a sounding board for plans and motives that are congruent with the business mission goals.

Jo always goes the extra length to provide creative, considered concepts which always resonate with the brief, giving us consternation as to which of the wonderful designs to sign-off on, when any of them would be more than adequate. When our serious competitor copied a specific brochure design of Jo’s we were indeed flattered.

Jo Muscat, the creative genius behind Bittersweet has delivered exceptional service and workmanship time and time again. Every time I have requested artwork it has been an exact match to the brief I gave, and even exceeded my expectations.

VICTOR VELGUSH

Managing Director – Refined Real Estate

The difference Joanne’s logo design and re-branding has made to Refined Real Estate is beyond measure. She created a timeless logo that captured our company’s vision and unique personality with exceptional clarity, well beyond my expectations.

Not only do I value her creative expertise, but her professional manner and friendly approach makes working with her an absolute pleasure.

Her ability to understand and graphically represent a company’s objectives is extraordinary.

Wow, Jo from Bittersweet gave a great range of options to choose from. The difficulty was choosing, they were all so good.

I was stunned at how quickly my requests were dealt with, even on weekends.

JAMES ORLANDO

Managing Director – The Barbecue Caterer

About 7 years ago we formed our business and approached Joanne from Bittersweet to come up with a name and logo and she came up with 5 different designs and name! We chose “The Barbecue Caterer”, which we have turned into a successful business and recently we had Joanne create a logo and come up with a name for another of my businesses. We have been more than happy with the service from Joanne and would recommend her to anyone.

ROB TADDEO

Managing Director – Define Cleaning

Define Cleaning & Property Services engaged the services of Bittersweet to design and put together our company website. After having gone through this with many other companies I was not confident with what I was getting.

I was introduced to Bittersweet and can honestly say with confidence that from day one, Joanne was honest, reliable, creative and very simple to understand.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Bittersweet to any other business looking for a professional website design.

CATHY TIMMIS

Australian T-shirt Promotions

I have been working with Joanne for the past 12 years. From poor images I email her (and sometimes seemingly impossible images) she can produce finished vector designs from one colour and up to six colour printing, ready for screen printing or embroidery in quick turn around time, also giving us extra options for our customers to choose from.

Joanne has great talent, has never let us down and is important to the running of our business.
