Hello, we’re Mike and Lindie, the passionate design duo behind Dustyandlulu design and branding agency in the stunning Martinborough Wine Village, Wairarapa, New Zealand. We help our clients connect with their customers through branding, illustration, packaging, publication, print, signage, website & digital design.

We have a real passion for design, in fact we’d say we’re design addicts. We live, breathe and love it! We’re two designers who found we share a love of brainstorming and creating visuals that punch above the ordinary. Our design skills and conceptual creative approach produce innovative designs that people love and connect with, all in a way that offers real bang for your buck.

With a lot of shared industry experience we’re proud of all the work we’ve done, and we know our stuff. We’ve worked with startups, large and small corporate clients and the public sector across a wide range of industries.

Being a small business in Martinborough, Wairarapa, we’re flexible and responsive. We love that we are small, a husband and wife design team. You deal direct with us, the designers, no middle men or women, ensuring direct communication. We’re the ones answering the phone.

We believe a successful design process comes from the collaboration of client and designer. Our process is very open, consulting with our clients along the way. We love building relationships with the people we have the pleasure of working with. Having a laugh with clients is an important part of making the creative process fun.

At Dustyandlulu we pride ourselves in being very transparent around costs and the design process. We are always happy to discuss what we can achieve for your budget. Give us a call, we’d love to hear from you.



It’s about looking good, standing out and connecting with your target audience. We work with you to understand your business, audience and personality to create brands that punch above the ordinary.


We’re addicted to the magic of illustration and love how this skill really helps bring brands to life. Injecting humour in illustrations not only makes us laugh our tits off coming up with the ideas, but really resonates with people.


It’s about first impressions and lasting impressions. Creating fresh and original packaging to stand out and build customer loyalty.

Publication & Print

We’re passionate about crafting good design. We delight in bringing together typography, colour, layout and photography in brochures, annual reports, flyers, posters, postcards, look books and any other design requirement.

We work with developers to bring your website to life, managing the development process through to that magical moment of going live.
