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.

The Laudato Si Challenge













The Laudato Si Challenge, Branding, Publications, 2019

The Laudato Si’ Challenge has been established to inspire creativity worldwide and improve the lives of one billion of the most vulnerable people. The Challenge’, supported by the Vatican, aims to become a multi year initiative convening of the best ideas through a rigorous and tested process.

The goal is to support the development of high impact social businesses offering ways to address critical problems of our time. Nature, Mankind and Liturgy together form the central theme of the Challenge’s identity system. These have been drawn in many forms including a circle, square and cross, lines of longitude and latitude, colours, vignettes, statistics and photographs that balance the organic and the man-made. Along with the logotype, designed to always be a part of a paragraph of text, this sophisticated system gives us the opportunity to adapt over time and place.

As a way of documenting the first Challenge a promotional book was created. The theme of the book was ‘The Social Economy’. Included in the book was essays, stories, presentations and nine interviews with each of companies involved. Each interview was accompanied by an illustration drawn to tell their story. The book showcases the full adaptability of the identity in a dynamic and cohesive series of designs. All beautifully printed in four spot colours and bound in a hardback linen cover.
