Who We Are

Our story begins on a crisp autumn day in 2002 when we launched Duotone Design & Communication (DuoDesign). We identified a gap in the market, one that we felt would best benefit from an integrated communications approach without excessive agency overheads. Since that day Duo Design has been privileged to work with many inspiring business owners and organisations seeking a considered and thoughtful approach to their brand identity, communications, marketing and digital strategy.


Our clients are primarily based in the greater Waikato-Auckland region with some further afield in places like Central Otago, London and Belfast. We credit our success to longstanding clients and our can-do collaborative approach. With many organisations we work in a way that is an extension to their team – providing the advantages of an in-house digital specialist or communications expert on call as required.

Beautifully thoughtful and strategically creative, Duo Design's strength lies in our ability to distil your brilliant business idea into a bold, confident brand with a clear captivating message. We can help your business achieve greater engagement and growth, please get in touch to find out how.
