Red Clay connects you to a community of  double-vetted, freelance, product and packaging designers and provides the tools you need to collaborate efficiently.

Spend your time on the
important stuff.

We find the talent, negotiate the contracts, and streamline all communication between you and your designers. We believe that you should be spending time on the things that make a real impact on your business, not scrolling through portfolio sites, redlining legal docs or keeping track of unorganized and lengthy email threads. 

Leave the legalese and logistics to us.


Think of us as design matchmakers.

Every time a product or packaging designer applies to be part of the Red Clay community, they are reviewed and vetted personally by our design-minded Chief Creative Officer. Then, our behind-the-scenes algorithm works out the top designers that are best for your project. That means every portfolio you see on the platform is double-vetted. 

Let us find you the perfect match.

Flexible pricing means low risk.

With our flexible pricing model you pay for exactly what you need, and nothing you don't. We believe that you should be able to customize a design project to fit your needs. Whether you're looking for brainstorming, concept designs, or fully developed CAD files for manufacturing, every project starts at just $50. 

Low risk, rest easy.

The Startup

UnaliWear had an unusual request for a tech company: design a smart watch that your grandma would understand how to use, and actually wear.

The Beloved Brand

Dillard's department store saw a huge opportunity for growth in homewares for Millennial shoppers, but needed fresh, new designs to win them over.

The Online Innovator

Moving away from flash sales of hard-to-find designer home goods, the online retailer launched an initiative to design its own private collections.
