About Us

We are a full service boutique design studio that designs for print and web; we work flexibly with clients to fulfil their design needs. Whether you need to create a brand from scratch, including a full marketing materials package and a beautifully functional website or you’re looking for a design refresh, we are here to fulfill your design needs.


Logo Design

We love this part. This is where your brand is carved out and you start to see the path it is going to lead to. We're able to fully envision and create your logo or idea and transform that into a graphic/visual that will represent you and your brand.


Custom illustrations and visuals are always an added bonus to any business. This can add that personal touch to a business that people connect with, adding that extra bit of personality to the brand.

Packaging & Print Design

The tangibility of a brand is always so satisfying, it adds a realness and nuance that can have additional dimension and experience. We love to create unique and custom ideas for print & packaging and since we have the first-hand experience designing for many store brands to know what works in a contextual use versus a conceptual format.

Brand Development

The full analysis and development of your brand. This can range from a starting from scratch brand, a full rebrand or fine tuning of your existing brand. We produce all the details to create a fully realized brand that will elevate your company and it's ideology.

Front-End Web Development

Creating websites designs and executing them so that it will elevate your business and take your brand to an online platform. We live in the future, so not being online is a missed opportunity. We want to make this an easy and painless process for our clients as there's so many opportunities and resources available to do so.

E-commerce Development

If your business requires it, we see this as an opportunity to add to your site. Creating and customizing a platform that you can use for your e-commerce needs to help capture those customers in an online or in-store venue.


Ian Davies and Lisa Davies are a brother and sister team! Combined, we have 24 years of experience with freelance and creative agency work. We decided that two heads are better than one and three can often be a crowd, therefore we formed DUO in 2011. We believe in working with you not for you.
