Red&Grey is a design and branding agency. We make our clients stand out with clarity and creativity – helping their brand to grow.
Established in 2003, we’ve worked on a variety of creative projects – big, small, complex and international. Our clients come from a wide range of sectors located in Ireland and around the world.
Our creative work has won several awards from ICAD
and the IDI. In 2014, we were awarded a Special
Outstanding Contribution to Design in Ireland Award
for Pivot Dublin.
Our process is collaborative, research-based and concept driven. Our process connects our Irish strengths (conversation, storytelling, empathy) and our skills as designers (curiosity, imagination and play).
We create thoughtful, engaging brand identities together with a broad visual language that express who you are and inspire people to think, feel or act in a certain way.
Design for print
Bringing your brand to life through print, campaigns, and advertising. Communicating your brand across platforms projecting a cohesive, tactile and integrated approach to connect and encourage buy in.
Design for online
We design customised websites, social media and digital items that are both functional and immersive, connecting with those that matter most.
Design of spaces
We design carefully considered immersive spaces, exhibitions, events and signage to enhance the value of your brand and business.
Discovering everything there is to know about your business, that makes it successful: its knowing it inside out. Here we are digging for gold, to uncover your ‘why’.
At the heart of every great brand is a defined purpose. Here we give you a compass to strategically position your brand to allow it to meet its goals.
A core speciality, we create memorable meaningful names that have the power to directly affect your brand’s perception and ultimately its – copywriting.
We believe wholeheartedly in collaboration and work in earnest with complementary experts to activate your brand to achieve the best outcome possible.
We enjoy working with like minded clients. We believe
the quality of our client relationships reflects the
quality of our work. We like to collaborate with clients,
share ideas and co-create.
“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

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