Rebecca Teaff

Chief Creative Officer & Founder

The heart of my design philosophy is that great design not only looks good but needs to clearly communicate to its audience to be successful. I enjoy collaborating on teams, solving problems and coming up with unique solutions for our clients. In my spare time I dream up ways to more efficiently color code my calendar and spend time with my family – husband, son and two dogs.

Gretchen Laufer

Operations Director

I can juggle 10 different things at once (metaphorically speaking of course). That is why you will find me behind the scenes at Redstart. I estimate, invoice, develop production schedules and coordinate designers, as well as manage the very active social life of two kids, coach soccer, volunteer at my kids’ school and try to hit the gym daily. Oh wait, that is only 8. I’m sure I can find 2 more things to do.

Print Creative Director

I’m in love with type and image, and how they work together to communicate multiple forms of content. My many years working with non-profits has allowed my inner marketer to shine and help guide clients in the right direction. I utilize my background in fine art and decades of experience to approach every project with a unique perspective. And being a proud new mom means juggling it all and working efficiently!

Laura Lloyd Henry

Traffic Manager

Being organized is my passion. Schedules, budgets, and to-do lists rule my world. No detail is too small and getting it done doesn’t count unless it’s on time, within budget AND right the first time. Now if I could just do what I do from the beach my life would be perfect.

Social Media Strategy

Building a good brand and consumer experience isn’t just about one medium of marketing or advertising.  It requires a holistic approach to understanding your business objectives and appealing to the needs of your target audience.  I seek to find the ideal balance of marketing and business personality on a digital landscape and work with my team to create robust visual and verbal content that appeals to your target audience.  I love what I do and find I am often ‘working’ at all hours, but I try and share the time with long runs along the Baltimore harbor, exploring my entrepreneurial side, and taking hikes in Baltimore County with my black lab, Lola.

Henry Mortimer

Content Strategy

I am a writer who enjoys, well, writing. I have written everything from poems, songs, stories, and plays (as well as novels-in progress and other doodles), to essays, reviews, and criticism. I manage Scribbleskiff.com, an occasional blog about bands, books, beer, and other distractions. In my spare time, I work as a content strategist and communications consultant. I live in Baltimore with my wife and children.

I keep my eye on the details to get things done. With an ever growing mind, I am always up for trying something new. I’m creative. You can’t expect me to be neat and tidy too.

Ally Brocious

Government Projects

I am passionate about art and design and enjoy the challenge of working to bring a project from concept to completion. As project manager I provide project oversight and design direction, working with clients or collaborating with my team to communicate ideas creatively and effectively. When not at my desk you’ll likely find me in the garden or tending to the chicks or bees. I love to travel and I love live music, and especially love when these forces combine.

Jo Bergin

Publication Design

I love finding solutions through design collaboration — communicating clients’ needs by capturing a mood or a moment or a personality. I find visual inspiration in the small and the mighty, the mundane and the wonderful, so I am always taking pictures and notes. When I’m not sketching or at the computer, I love big, involved cooking projects and playing board games with my twins and husband.

Katie Mychailyszyn

Creative Design

As a designer with over ten years of experience and now a mother of two kids under 3, I find both of my jobs have a lot in common—both sometimes wake you up at 2am, both are better executed on a cup of coffee with a side of creativity, and both require a great deal of love and attention to be done well.

I’ve been told I’m a workaholic. The truth is, I love what I do. I view every project as an opportunity to raise the bar and find the best possible visual solution. The end result? You look good.

Trained as a graphic designer, I’ve worked my way into the web design/development field, keeping a focused eye on front end design and back end code. When it comes to customization I strive to get you what you need. When I’m not being creative I’m hanging out with my wife, two kids, and three cats!

Special Projects

Nothing lights me up like executing good ideas. I love making things happen and take pride in the work that I do. After 14 years as a fundraiser for a large non-profit health organization, I am excited to be jumping back into the world of communications design – my degree and first career path. During non-working hours you will most likely find me with my family planning and scheming our next adventure.

Proofreading

Writing gives me the opportunity to share good news about great people. I tell the stories of individuals and organizations who are working to make the world a better place.
It is my great blessing to live in Charleston, SC where I serve as the Director of Special Events for the Charleston American Marketing Association, joyfully share my home as a puppy foster for Pet Helpers, and am proud to be a Dragon Boat team member. You might also see me wearing a pink hard hat when I’m pitching in with Habitat for Humanity.

Government Teams - Proofreader

As a University of Georgia graduate with a degree in journalism, I have two passions: college football and proper punctuation. Just remember … there’s a big difference between, “Let’s Eat Grandma.” and “Let’s Eat, Grandma.” Commas can save lives.
