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.

Elisa Watson

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!

Courtney Trusty

Digital Director

Organized and process driven, I love building marketing systems and processes that drive organizations forward. As an experienced digital marketing strategist, I have played a key role in helping my clients to develop and execute online engagement strategies to grow organizational audiences, increase brand awareness, and present them as leaders in their respective industries through content marketing and outreach.

My past clients say I’m a little scrappy and willing to do what it takes to go above and beyond while having fun along the way. When I’m not working I love spending time on photography, tennis, cooking, or hiking.

I create content marketing strategies that make businesses stand out and get their message heard! I enjoy helping businesses of all sizes reach their ideal audience so they can serve more people. When I am not working you can find me planning my next adventure with my family.

Bridget Parlato

Graphic Designer

My work as a designer/artist/activist in Baltimore is a mix of cause-related and community work. Living in Baltimore has largely shaped what, why and how I create, which I do in a variety of mediums. With a background in design and sculpture and head of Baltimore Trash Talk (my community anti-trash initiative) my work has come an adventure in raising awareness and creating change through creativity. Sculptures have become campaigns, trash has become wearable art, concerns have become purpose – and purpose is one of the key elements to being happy.

Project Manager

I am a type A personality with a fun loving “B” side. I like big picture thinking with color-coded details. My professional experience spans sales, advertising, social media, marketing, development, account management and more. I have worked in non-profit and for-profit sectors, both private and public. I feel this breadth of experience allows me to draw on various perspectives to solve client challenges. When I’m not working I’m organizing my kids’ legos , finding the best gluten free restaurants and advocating for better mental health care for moms.

Executive Assistant

I love connecting with people and solving problems in a creative way. The role of an assistant has always meant wearing multiple hats, which I graciously do in my personal life as well. In my spare time I love to write and manage a blog, all the while holding my son in one hand and a coffee in the other. You can always find my husband and dog right by my side, ready to support my newest idea. No matter which hat I wear, I wear it with a smile and high energy. Probably has something to do with the coffee.

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, 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.

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!

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.

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.
