Big Things Come in Small Agencies.

We do what we love, and we love what we do. We are a small but agile team of go-getters, truth-seekers, storytellers, strategists, and big thinkers, using our collective talents for good. Our solution-centric philosophy and growth mindset offer a fresh perspective and open up a world of new opportunities.

Born From Grit

RP3 was born from the remnants of another agency. One that closed abruptly and left employees without jobs. Shocked and heartbroken, our founder, Beth Johnson, made the bold choice to take the business on herself. Rallying newly-laid off staff behind her commitment to seek the good in every situation, Beth, her fearless vision, and her new staff were determined to carry on business as usual.

RP3 opened the very next day, where a roomful of brave employees banded together to build a new agency. A better agency.

Resilience, grit, and smart, effective work carried us through. Over a decade later, our growing agency is a tight-knit team founded on integrity, commitment, and drive. We’re living proof that hard work works, and are fully embracing a future chock-full of pushing the boundaries and building strong relationships along the way.

RP3’s First Anniversary, 2010
