“Working with Red&Grey is always a pleasure. They are one of the most professional teams I have worked with. They combine strategic and profound thinking with the power of design. They see things from a holistic point of view and are able to capture this in simplistic yet powerful designs and brand identities. What is most telling about them, is that they really worked with me in redefining our company’s new brand strategy.”

NCAD Graduate Exhibition 2018







NCAD Graduate Exhibition 2018, Environmental, Publication, 2018

The NCAD Graduate Exhibition is an annual opportunity to discover the latest emerging talent from the art and design world.

Challenge
The National College of Art and Design is Ireland’s oldest art institution, offering a range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. As part of their 2019 Graduate Show, the college held a series of events that gave visitors of all ages an opportunity to find out more about the wide range of work that goes on in NCAD during the year. The programme of events included talks and workshops which were free and open to the public.

Approach
Our approach for the graduate exhibition was formed by creating an adaptable visual system that gave colour, shape and typographic weight to each art and design faculty. Each college faculty was represented with a shape and colour to show individuality and consistency.

We designed and produced directional signage which was placed around the campus. The signage was made from simple cost-effective materials. At the college entrance on Thomas Street, we built a custom made wooden structure which displayed information panels. These panels welcomed visitors and had a map showing where the department’s show was located on the campus.

We also designed a series of exhibition catalogues for each faculty. Each catalogue cover was unique to show for consistency and change.

Services
Design of space, design for print, signage, exhibition, catalogue.

Value
Selected for the 100 Archive, an archive of one hundred best Irish graphic design projects each year.

“I have worked with Red&Grey over the last three years on the student recruitment campaigns for the National College of Art & Design (NCAD). In this capacity, they have re-thought and re-designed the college prospectus and a range of other promotional material. I have found they are insightful in their understanding of the context and goals of each project, they are collaborative in their approach and the work is consistent of a very high standard. I highly recommend them as a design agency.”
