From the moment you contact Red Onion we'll find out as much as possible from you and if required arrange a face-to-face meeting. We take as long as it needs to analyse a brief so we come up with the best solution for you... we provide as many ideas within reason until you're 100% with the direction.


Red Onion Design began in 2011 with predominantly work in printed magazine design. That's still at the heart of what we do, however we now bring those skills to much wider range of design disciplines. We're now offering optional editorial services for all our work.


Our designs have won international silver at the CASE Circle of Excellence Awards 2017, and a Highly Commended at the CIPR #insidestory awards 2015! We connect with people. Whether it's lifestyle, homes, interiors, real-life, fashion, health, special interest for men and women, we'll find creative solutions to any project.
