Our Process

While each project requires a bespoke approach based on what our research and investigations uncover, there are 6 fundamental pillars to our design process that ensures we deliver excellent work, every time. Keep scrolling to read about them.



We begin by actively listening, formulating relevant questions, and diligently taking your responses on board to help us grasp the project's problem. Through methods like desk research, interviews, workshops and focus groups, we uncover creative solutions within your answers, fostering a full understanding of our bespoke problem-solving approach to your need.



A brand's success hinges on its purpose, values, personality, architecture, stories, and messaging. We use these insights to define your project's problem and create a robust brief. This will inspire our design team to craft impactful, exciting, and result-driven solutions. At Red Dog, we champion bold creativity. There is no rule book.



With the information gathered from our initial meetings, creative brief, research, and your input, we get to work. We blend structure with free-flowing ideas, aligning them with your strategic vision. Our Creative Director ensures concepts align with the brief and your brand's personality, maintaining our high standards of design and creativity at Red Dog.



After the concepts stage, we intensively refine and develop the creative to a strong, exciting solution. Feedback is pivotal as we incorporate your insights, steadily progressing towards the preferred option. We're dedicated to perfection, aligning the design precisely with your objectives – and hopefully surpassing them. We'll then showcase how the creative solution excels in diverse contexts.



After concept approval, we begin the roll-out by implementing the creative across diverse media and formats. Our expertise ensures seamless integration and a consistent visual identity, bringing everything together, regardless of the client sector or need.



We want our relationships to extend beyond project completion, evolving into ongoing partnerships. We offer continuous support and creative expertise, ensuring consistent and up-to-date outputs across all touchpoints.
