Our Team

A Dutch graphic designer by profession, Marlies worked as an art director for several international magazines from Europe and India. She is the 3rd generation in her family to embrace Mumbai as her home and beloved Maximum City. She believes that excellence is in the details – with no frills attached. Much of Marlies’s design comes from Dutch minimalism fused with inspiration from Indian city life. Like her grandmother, it’s never too hot a day to explore the bazaars of Mumbai and have a chai with the local shop owners.

Half-Indian, half-Dutch, Natascha worked as a brand communications consultant by day and comedienne by night, before partnering with Marlies at Ministry of New. She lives in Mumbai with her husband and daughter. You can spot her wearing a hand puppet or a red nose in her local hood.
