Who We Are

Founded by Joanne Hair and Andrew Newth in early 2002, Duotone Design & Communication’s (Duo Design) clients are primarily based in the greater Waikato-Auckland-BOP region. We credit our enduring success to great relationships, accountability and our love for collaboration. 

With many organisations we work in a way that is an extension to their inhouse marketing team – providing the advantages of an in-house digital specialist or communications expert on call as required.

Joanne’s mix of creative and strategic thinking has seen her carve out a niche as a visual communication specialist. With extensive experience in brand identity, information design and communications strategy, her project work includes award winning National Fieldays sites, Environmental Reporting awards and many successful tender and RFPs. She began her creative career first working as a studio designer for an advertising agency, assistant art curator at WMAH and brand, publications and information designer for local government. Joanne is an external moderator for Master of Design candidates, Adjunct Lecturer (Design) and sits on Wintec's Post Graduate Industry Panel.

Andrew is an experienced website designer. Over the past two decades he has project managed, designed and developed hundreds of websites, along with a myriad of digital solutions for our clients. Andrew is responsible for turning your digital dream into fully functioning reality creating digital and e-commerce solutions, implementing content management systems, email newsletters. A natural born musician, his background includes crafting commercials and jingles for radio along with scoring original compositions for use in TVCs and short films. 

Together Duo Design’s strategic and creative work will help your company achieve greater audience engagement and business growth, please get in touch to find out how.
