“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.”
Rutger Bonsel, Stamicarbon

The Laudato Si Challenge






The Laudato Si’ Challenge has been established to inspire creativity worldwide and improve the lives of one billion of the most vulnerable people.

Challenge
Supported by the Vatican, the Laudato Si’ Challenge is 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.

Solution
Nature, Mankind and Liturgy together form the central theme of the Challenge’s brand identity system we created. 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.

Approach
As a way of documenting the launch of the first year of the Challenge a limited-edition book was produced. The theme of the book was ‘The Social Economy’ which included essays, stories, presentations and nine interviews with each of the companies involved. Each interview was accompanied by an illustration drawn to tell their unique story. The book showcases the full adaptability of the identity in a dynamic and cohesive series of designs. All beautifully printed in Luxembourg using four spot colours and bound in a hardback linen cover.

Services
Branding, design for print, copywriting, art direction, illustration & print management.

Value
“Red&Grey is an outstanding micro-global agency. I have worked with them on a number of international projects, where their professional approach, refreshing design, & practical solutions have taken our projects to the next level. Professional, highly creative, & a pleasure to work with.”
