“It’s me. Hi. I’m the maker, it's me.” - Abigail Timms, Graphic Designer and diehard Swiftie. Abigail collaborates with the creative team to design digital and print deliverables, from web pages and social media posts to magazine ads and brochures. When she's off the clock, she works at her other creative outlets—DIYing, creating art, and reading. All with Taylor Swift on repeat.
Resource, revamp, and repurpose. That’s (probably) Alma’s mantra. She staffs every opportunity that comes through the agency and guarantees that we have top-notch resources to produce great work for our clients. When she closes her laptop for the day, you'll find her giving new life to vintage clothes and spending time with her two kiddos in the Windy City.
A passion for people is at the core of everything Carly does. She thrives on creating impactful solutions to exceed client goals and always gives a dose of the unexpected. Actually, that might be her middle name. She's a proud horse girl, a diehard college basketball fan, and a karaoke queen. Carly Unexpected Nealy—there’s a nice ring to it.
With Caroline as our captain of agency operations, we stay in tip-top shape. Her keen sense of organization not only keeps us afloat, it also comes in handy with her other favorite things: keeping up with her two kids and their busy sports schedules and maintaining her beautifully decorated home. With Caroline around, it’s always smooth sailing.
A Georgia peach, a fur baby mom, and a diehard advocate for our clients, Caroline does it all. And never misses a beat. When she's not managing the needs of clients, challenging the comfort zones of those around her, or pushing the creative work to perfection, she’s probably on her way to see Phish (she’s officially seen the band 100+ times). Go ahead and add “committed” to her list of accolades.
Ever wonder what the human version of a search engine would look like? Well, look no further—it’s Cat. The secret sauce behind every strategic thought, Cat studies human behavior, industry trends, and user experience to make sure that we never miss a beat. Speaking of beats, did we mention she can sing too?
When something is the latest and greatest—whether it's a Bluetooth-enabled kettle or a social platform update—Courtney is the first to know (like, immediately). That’s what makes her the greatest at what she does. She expertly advises brands on when, where, and how they can best execute across social platforms. And she makes a mean pot of tea while doing it.
Daniel is a part-time peruser of record shops, part-time dreamer of owning a beach-side cabin, and full-time supervisor of accounts. He’s the glue between redpepper and our clients, ensuring that the work we do is top-notch, strategically measurable, and successful in meeting our clients needs.

When Drew’s around, everything is just better.
Hannah brings a lot to the table—she ensures project goals are exceeded, no details slip through the cracks, and long-lasting relationships are built with clients (and does it all with a sunny attitude). In her off hours, she’s either trying out a new recipe, catching up with friends over a happy hour, or grabbing a bite to eat (preferably sushi) often while exploring a new city.
When you have a down-to-earth, no-challenge-is-too-big attitude like Jacob’s, rallying teams and leading them to success is first-nature. Jacob's second-nature? Sarcasm, memes, Duke's mayonnaise, general debauchery, things of that sort. Status quo? Consider yourself extinct around Jacob.

She’s the perfect combination of creative and strategic, and holds the media reins from the start of project planning through day-to-day optimization and pivoting, all the way to delivering perfectly pristine reports at the end.

Karla describes her role as “pointing at things.” It’s how she works and a peek into how she thinks. With her trusty pup Cyrus by her side, Karla provides is the “why” so the team can create a better “what” now and tomorrow. Her obsession with future results might be part of her growth mindset—or her other obsession, speculative fiction (AKA sci-fi).
You’ll find Katie in the details—building thorough project plans, facilitating communication across teams, and problem-solving along the way to ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget. And when she's not keeping things on track, she’s tending to other details in her life: caring for her houseplants, finding thrift store gems, or cuddling with her orange tabby cat, Odie.

He’s also the one who cuts all our paychecks. We like that part, too.
You know how sometimes you just want to take a look inside someone’s brain to see how they come up with their ideas? For us, that person is Matt Reed. A few of the cool things in his portfolio: creating an AI that supercharges brainstorming sessions, building a robot that finds Waldo in under 5 seconds, and doing monthly deep dives on new tech to share his knowledge with the rest of us.
Lights, Camera, Matt. That’s how we say it around here. He touches every stage of each print, photo, or video project we put into the world. He thinks of every detail and considers all possible roadblocks (ranging from probable to unlikely) before we sit down for the project kick-off meeting. Safe to say Matt puts the “pro” in production.
Nate wears a lot of strategic hats around our shop, whether he’s providing keen insights into why we humans do what we do, delving into the mindset of a new target audience, or building solid strategic foundations for a brand's next big thing.

Plus, he does it all with an eye for detail and sense of humor.
