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 – hubbie, son and two dogs.

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.
