At Studio Redeye, we connect the dots by approaching a project through many different lenses: the consumer’s point-of-view, the manufacturing requirements, competitor research and more. Our results are award-winning, brand-focused products that truly connect with the consumer. We pride ourselves on our high client retention rate, and tailor our approach to each client.
Founded by designer David Block, Studio Redeye is located in Brooklyn, New York. He and his wife Nicole, an award-winning graphic designer and illustrator, have teamed up to conquer both ends of the product spectrum. From logos and branding design to your final product, we can do it all!
As a small design studio, we pride ourselves on a more personalized approach. We offer our clients the highest level of design, with a friendliness and sense of humor that is often hard to come by. Whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a start-up venture, be assured that you will get our best work.
You can’t have a great product without a great idea. Studio Redeye does the market and brand research to start you off on the right foot. Extensive concept sketches and 3D renderings help you realize your item’s potential.
We have designed a wide range of products, from barware and bottles to lunch boxes and toys, and everything in between. We know how to make a beautiful finished piece, but more importantly, we know how to make it work. Because after all, connecting with the buyer is the real goal.
Studio Redeye doesn’t just design your product to look good. We design it to work. And we can take it from concept, to design, and finally to engineering parts for manufacturing.

Objects have their own world. Making an object means imbuing it with its own spirit.
Design is about making things good (and then better) and right (and fantastic) for the people who use and encounter them.
No design works unless it embodies ideas that are held common by the people for whom the object is intended.
Great design will not sell an inferior product, but it will enable a great product to achieve its maximum potential.
