Meet the Team:

Connor Lumsden
With 8 years of experience in the performing art industry, 3 years working in youth and digital media at a church and 3 years running DIO, I understand the art and business of the digital world. I’m currently studying a bachelor of commerce (majoring in marketing) at Varsity College, who awarded me a Rising Star scholarship. I now combine these skills to make branding simple for clients around the world.

When I’m not building brands, I’m making bonsais and brewing beer. I’m about as chilled as they come and most people mistake me for an introvert!

DIO is short for Diogenes, the minimalist philosopher. He believed that less is more. That is what DIO is about; making media simple for you so that your brand can make the most of the internet, social media, print graphics and whatever else you can stick a logo on.

He was also a little bit wild. He took minimalism as far as living in a barrel and rejected most tenets he considered folly in the society around him. We hope to be even half as bold as him in the way we break rules and push boundaries in branding.

Values (SEA):



We believe in making branding so straightforward that even your grandma will understand it. In a world filled with complexities, we aim to simplify your brand, ensuring it’s easily relatable and memorable for everyone.



Our focus is on branding that not only looks good but also delivers tangible results. We combine exceptional brand design and strategy to create a powerful and effective digital presence that makes an impact that lasts.



While we do make good use of artificial intelligence as a tool, we recognize that our brands are ultimately built by humans, for humans. Accessibility is a fundamental principle in our approach. We ensure that your brand resonates with all audiences, regardless of their backgrounds or abilities.



You have a story to tell and a business to build. Together, we’ll design a digital identity to go with it.


DIO brings a camera to the table – along with the skills needed to bring your brand to life through the lens. You can see some of DIO’s photography by clicking here.
