Rockets are Red is an award-winning graphic design firm with offices in metro-Washington, DC and Philadelphia, PA.

We have had the pleasure of producing work for such clients as RedBull, Simon and Schuster, The New York Times, Universal Records, and Dreamworks.  Our band work includes Wilco, Foo Fighters, The Gaslight Anthem, Rancid, Lou Reed, Frank Turner, and more! 
We work tirelessly with clients to ensure that each product exactly fits each client’s needs. Ranging from stationery, posters, annual reports, and music packaging to direct mail and websites, his sensibility is proudly distinctive. Using humor/irony, smarts, fringe culture iconography, and handcrafted work in contrast to the overwhelming homogenization and conservatism that characterize committee-created corporate products. Rockets are Red: boundless creative endeavors.

SMALL FIRM

With our small firm every project is our main focus. Our agile approach to working means we can answer questions, address concerns, and provide the best results in a timely manner, within budget, and with maximum impact! Clients are not just a name on a job list to be passed off to the next free person. We eliminate the middle people and all middle-of-the-road mentality. Every project is important and we personally oversee each step from launch to landing.

 

 

EXPANDABLE TEAM

With our agile team we can quickly expand to address every aspect of a project. Be it high-end websites with a custom database, merchandise design and production, in-depth branding projects, or advertising needs, we handpick the best team to suit your specific wants and needs. Plus because we are not overstaffed with designers waiting for work, you save money and time on each project.
