Red&Grey

Red&Grey is a concept-driven design and branding studio based in Dublin. Established in 2003, we engage in national and international projects of varying scale and capacity. Working closely with our clients, we help create brands that are designed to live, adapt and grow.

Process: Our design process is created by connecting our Irish strengths: conversation, storytelling, humour, empathy, resilience and our skills as designers: research, humour, curiosity, play, imagination and observation.

Research: We want to see what everybody else sees, and think what nobody else has thought. Research is about being curious and wanting to know more. It is about needing to have more information in order to create more informed solutions.

Studio Principles: Everything starts with a conversation / If you want an interesting answer, ask an interesting question / Curiosity drives research / Balance aesthetic with substance / The quality of our relationships define the quality of our work / Design for consistency, allow for change.

Homebeat + 34






Homebeat + 34, Branding, 2019

An independent Irish music promoter moved in next door to our studio and decided to sell coffee from his workspace. The owner tasked us with designing a duo of versatile identity logotypes/systems that underlined his adaptable methods and creative approach to public events.

Both identities, Homebeat and 34 (Homebeat HQ/Café) needed to compliment each other whilst remaining independently distinct. The process began by looking at music manuscripts and the constant movement and evolution of Homebeat’s events. Through a series of physical research techniques; making, painting, stretching, photocopying stretching, scanning etc. we began to develop an aesthetic that matched the fluidity of Homebeat.
