A Brief History

Established in 2002, Duo Design has delivered brilliant brands, media campaigns and websites solutions for clients throughout New Zealand, Australia, the South Pacific and the UK. 

Co-founders Joanne Hair and Andrew Newth started the company with a shared passion to create compelling and enduring brands that ultimately unified and strengthened communications and marketing. We credit our success to longstanding clients and a collaborative approach.

Our clients operate in industries as diverse as architecture, construction, engineering, hospitality, tourism and health care. Partnering with key clients over the past two decades, we’ve watched many of our client’s businesses thrive, enjoying commercial success, with several growing from 1 or 2 founders to organisations of 80+ people.

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

Our strength lies in our ability to distil your brilliant business idea into a bold, confident brand with a clear captivating message. Talk with us about how we can unlock yours.

"Andrew and Jo worked closely with us right from the start and managed to work our thoughts into a vibrant, easy to use website. Their skill base and creativity combined with a real understanding of our needs made it a pleasure to work with them."
