The PIP Project.

pip (noun): a small fruit seed

The PIP Project is an outreach initiative of Red Orange Studio. The vision is “People Inspiring People.” One of our core values is good influence and great impact. We also believe in intentionality, so we’ve established the PIP project to provide more opportunities to make a positive impact in our community and influence others to do the same.

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.

Donate Proceeds

In the Fall of 2018, we will launch our online store that will showcase our handmade and custom-designed art and goods. All proceeds from these sales will go to charities close to our heart. As a brand agency, we spend the majority of our creative time designing on the computer. But we love to explore our creativity in other ways too, and can’t wait to use our artistic gifts to make a positive impact!
