Red Deer operates as a workshop, drawing on these various disciplines and interests to reanimate design. Inspired by an eclectic mix of surrealism, craftsmanship, making, painting, film, and digital processes, the group make sure that they critically engage with the materials, details and project briefs as a group, so that they process remain an 'open discussion', rather than following one set path.
