Jo Derviller
Founder & Creative Director

Jo founded Imaginate 14 years ago, based on strong core values of creativity and customer service. Jo has been a designer for 28 years, and is a published writer and public speaker on creative design for publications such as Brand Communications. She's a bit of a dreamer who, 14 years ago, set herself on a road to build an agency full of like-minded individuals, where design is king, creativity is unbound, and nothing but perfection is good enough. She is always pushing the boundaries and prides herself on developing long lasting close working relationships with her clients and believes strongly in going the “extra mile” to achieve perfection.

Jo has been integral on the success of multi faceted projects such as HSBC’s Wimbledon Activation, which encompassed branding deliverables across the infamous Queue Walkway, HQ activations at Canary Wharf and experiential creation at Wimbledon Station. She has worked on 2 Olympic Games, and was the lead designer on the complete redesign of the World Rugby Museum at Twickenham, and the lead designer on the Inter Milan Shirt Sponsorship campaign in 2016.
