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

Creative Journeys is a two-year public art program that brings together Business to Arts, Dublin Airport and the National College of Art and Design (NCAD).
Business to Arts builds creative partnerships between arts and business; so that the creativity and acumen of both communities develop quality cultural experiences and world-class collaborations in Ireland. ‘Creative Journeys’ is a two-year public art program that brings together Business to Arts, Dublin Airport and the National College of Art and Design (NCAD). Creative Journeys is part of a wider programme to help Dublin Airport provide an experience that is engaging and memorable, but also one that also creates a unique sense of place.
The installation entitled ‘NCAD Illuminated’ was designed by Red&Grey and Matthew Thompson. Over the last five years, they have captured, curated and communicated the working practices and outputs of NCAD students across a diverse range of creative disciplines. The arduous process of editing, distilling and pairing thousands of photographs was undertaken to truly capture the essence of Ireland’s leading art and design college inside the gates of Dublin Airport. The series of colourful vignettes presented of past and present students and their work subtly reference the visual narrative of Harry Clarke, famous NCAD alumni and stained glass artist. This large scale installation is located at Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport.

“It was a delight to work with Red&Grey as part of the Creative Journeys programme at Dublin Airport, in partnership with NCAD. When approached to develop a different manifestation of previous work for a large passenger-facing space in Dublin Airport, their approach was highly creative, intelligent and focused on ensuring the artwork presented a clear story to the audience. It would be a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Red&Grey on any future projects.”
