Creating Solutions to Your Business Challenges
Fueled by a passion for great design, brand strategy, genuine relationships and business excellence, Susie Fife founded Red Orange Studio in 2005 and has grown the company into a team of top-notch designers, illustrators, developers/programmers, copywriters, photographers and other creative professionals. Susie believes that every business deserves great design and she feels blessed to share her God-given talent to help others achieve their goals.
As a design professional, Susie enjoys the challenge of creating a visual solution to communicate a client’s product, service, message or strategy. From corporate branding to websites, Susie puts her creative juices to work while keeping in mind her client’s goals.

Changing The Way You Think About Designers
You might find Susie sitting in the botanical gardens with a sketchbook and quickly label her as one of those “artsy” people. But make no mistake — she’s not your stereotypical flighty creative type. In fact, she’s rather militant about meeting deadlines and sticking within budgets, which is a pleasant surprise to her clients who’ve had bad experiences with creative teams. She’s making it her personal mission to change the way business owners feel about graphic designers — one happy client at a time.

Team Spirit and Competitive Training Give Susie an Edge in Business
Susie graduated summa cum laude from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Communication Arts and Design. A scholarship athlete on the VCU women’s basketball team, Susie cultivated a competitive spirit that now pushes her to perfection with every project. Her team knows never to tell Susie they can’t do something; she repeatedly demonstrates that anything is possible. And she’s no stranger to the corporate world, having four years of experience in the financial industry before opening the agency.

Welcome to the Red Orange Family!
A wife, mother and community leader, Susie balances business, family and friendships with grace and style. You can expect a warm hug and a hot cup of coffee from this Iowa girl when you stop in to visit the Red Orange family in their urban studio located in Richmond’s Historic Shockoe Bottom district.
