Our Vision

A world where people care and act

Our Mission Statement

We do photography, videography, branding and websites for charitable organisations and conscious businesses to raise their profile, attracting both opportunities and people so they can make a bigger impact.

We get to inspire people to make a real impact by doing what we love. This helps the people we work with make a positive impact and become more sustainable.

We tell the stories that need to be told and put them out there for everyone to see. This increases business growth through awareness and attracting opportunities. We help them feel authentic, confident and proud of what they do and stand for.

Our customers are trying to make the world a better place and spread the word of their purpose or good causes that they support.

Our Core Values


We strive to make a measurable difference to achieve the best outcome, even if challenging ourselves and others.


We are passionate about those we work with and bring excitement and energy to every project. We aim to delight and exceed expectations.

Everyone experiences and perceives the world through different lenses. We ask purposeful questions and aren’t afraid to experiment.

We ask ourselves two questions. Will our service help improve your purpose? When our interaction is over, will the world be a better place than when you began?

Studio Duo believes in supporting charities in creative ways to showcase better the work they do. We care about our clients’ missions and causes, and with our creativity and experience, we help them make a better world for us all.

Our studio has helped our incredible clients gain awareness for their cause, gain supporters and increase their funding through donations, fundraising and sponsorships. We do this by nurturing long relationships with the people we work with and taking the time to fully immerse ourselves with what you are about, your goals and your aspirations to support you throughout your journey.

The Duo & Co

Twins Sonny Allward & Dougie Allward discovered charities sometimes aren’t great at showcasing the excellent work they are doing – and noticed with their passion and skill; they could do something about it. Bang – Studio Duo was born. Now, it’s not just the twins – we are a collaboration of creative folk working together to help non-profits help the world. Using highly skilled partners allows us to stay agile, responsive and cost-effective.

Our space

We are lucky enough to have office space in the Knowle West Media Centre. The building is a sustainable straw bale construction, built using eco-friendly materials and techniques, making it a pretty unique building! KWMC are an arts centre and charity centred on working collaboratively with people from different backgrounds to develop new and creative models for achieving positive social change, and Studio Duo’s rent helps contribute to the fantastic programmes they run. There’s always some hustle and bustle around this building which is why we love it so much! To check out disabled access and facilities, check the AccessAble website.

Our service packages

We are a full-service agency, which means we can help you with large projects such as new campaigns, revamping your communications and the way you look, to minor ad-hoc work as and when you need it with creative services such as branding, design and photography.

I cannot recommend Dougie highly enough. They were flexible and very professional when filming. The finished product of the film was amazing. The film has helped us raise awareness about GAP and is supporting us in funding the programme.
