EST 2010

Red Onion was founded in Uppsala, Sweden in the end of 2010.

We strive to create high quality solutions for web and mobile that are effective, attractive and built with great care.


In spite of our awkward pitches – we’re designers and programmers, not salesmen – our clients hire us based on what we actually deliver, not on elevator pitches made of snazzy buzzwords or elaborate promises.

Why the name?

“fun, spirited and not intimidating”

Steve Jobs, about choosing the name Apple

We wanted something that was not an anonymous three or four letter abbreviation. We also did not want to limit our selection to what would be appropriate from a SEO point of view. Names created with only SEOhits in mind often becomes ironically non-descriptive in their lack of personality.

So, we turned to the giants who proved that fruits and vegetables ;P very well can symbolize the values and identity of a technological company. Besides, it does make for a rather nifty logo.

But if somone asks, we will of course tell them it is a reference to .onion and a metaphor for responsible development.
