“Red Clay is the foundation [on] which our new product will stand - forever... We WILL be using Red Clay for ALL of our product design.”

- Julian Wan, Merchandising and Fab.com
“I love the Red Clay platform! What they have designed is a perfect visual representation of what I had in my mind… the designs have propelled me and the business forward in terms of achieving our current goals.”
