The PIP Project.

pip (noun): a small fruit seed

Red Orange Studio is a tech-savvy creative agency that packs a punch when it comes to brand creation, graphic design and marketing solutions. We know businesses and non-profit organizations need a brand that makes a splash in the marketplace – and produces results as well. So we create unique web and print media that is both visually captivating and strategically effective.


The PIP Project is our outreach initiative. The vision is “People Inspiring People.” We’ve established the PIP project to provide opportunities to make a positive impact in our community and influence others to do the same.


Each year, Red Orange Studio inspires others by donating our services to one non-profit through our PIP Award. The award recipient for 2018 was selected based on defined criteria, such as alignment with our core values and need for marketing or branding services.  Learn more about this year’s recipient here!

This video was created 3 years ago by the studio’s founder, Susie Fife. It was selected as one of the top three videos for a national award through NAWBO. According to the theme “No Small Thing,” Susie briefly shares about the people who inspired her the most as a creative entrepreneur. This video project is what ignited the spark to inspire others through an organized community outreach initiative called The PIP Project.

2018 Award Recipient

We are extremely thankful to all 25 non-profits that submitted an application in consideration for our 2018 PIP Project Award. The process to determine this year’s non-profit organization was very involved, but after careful consideration, the selected recipient for this year’s award is Safe Harbor Shelter.


Safe Harbor has earned the reputation as a top agency in the area through the provision of safe housing and service to survivors of sexual and domestic violence, and human trafficking for 18 years. Safe Harbor’s vision is to maintain and build upon this reputation through the continued administration of sustainable, impactful and innovative programs and services. Red Orange Studio is excited to partner with Safe Harbor to achieve the desired design, branding and strategy goals to further the impact they can make in our beloved Richmond region.


A heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all the organizations that submitted an application for consideration. We applaud you in the work you are doing to make a difference in the lives of others.

Congrats to our PIP Award recipient, Safe Harbor Shelter!
