Our Brand Story

Rooted in love. Overflowing with creative juice. Designed for long-term collaboration.

RedOrange was the firstborn brand of founder Susie Fife and her husband John– a blend of their two favorite colors, which they merged artfully to create their wedding design. It later grew to become RedOrange Studio – a marriage of creativity and technology to support small businesses and large brands. Our unique combination of strategic marketing and remarkable design gives RedOrange clients a powerful tool for their brand success.

Red is a color associated with ENERGY, STRENGTH, and DETERMINATION as well as PASSION, DESIRE and LOVE.

The RED AWARD is given to the teammate who exemplifies determination and diligence throughout the year with clients and projects. The RED AWARD recipient creates solutions, solves problems, and fights to make it right.

This person who was awarded red last year brought nearly 8 new clients our way in 2015. She constantly perseveres to get better at her craft so she can offer our clients the best and newest design solutions. She has shown stellar communication skills…whether pitching to new clients or presenting new technology to the team. Congratulations, Jolinda, for receiving the 2015 Red Award!
