Hi, I'm Jo Della Abbott (she/her). 


My work ranges in industries from the arts, foundations, non-profits, and universities — to brands, media, tech, and real estate. No matter the subject, client, or activity, I tend to push my personal boundaries so that when I finish a project, I have learned something new and challenging to bring to the next. As a creative, I believe there is a social power that we all need to find, define, and re-design on our own; mine is to remind everyone of life, desire, humility, and humanity. 


Proud BFA holder from PNCA in Portland, Oregon & Columbia in Chicago, Illinois. As my current endeavor, I am the Art Director at Ideas United in Atlanta, GA. Outside of my passionate day job, you can find me obsessively handcrafting goods, studying Portuguese on Duolingo, collecting vinyl, painting, making music, propagating plants, and practicing photography.
