    Kirsten Modestow
    Executive Creative Director
    Kirsten founded BRIGADE in 2006 after a long stint in the East and West Coast advertising scene where she did award-winning work on Dunkin Donuts, The Sims (EA Games), Fidelity Investments, and Target among others. Her first client, SVEDKA Vodka, is still a client 14 years and 20 team members later.
  • Creative Director
    Robert Parker
    Creative Director
    My role is a hybrid of creative direction and strategy. I approach creative from an aesthetic and analytical point-of-view and work through projects at every stage – from top-level thought leadership to concepting, positioning, direction, presentation, refinement, and rollout.
  • Associate Creative Director
    Kathryn Slater
    Associate Creative Director
    I’m an Associate Creative Director specializing in brand strategy and copywriting, and my approach relies on empathetic leadership, close collaboration with designers, and a knack for getting straight to the heart of a brand with storytelling and stand-out creative.
  • Associate Creative Director
    Hali Miller
    Associate Creative Director
    As an Associate Creative Director, I lead a wide variety of different projects—from packaging design to social media strategy. I’ve always got my eye on the next trend and I love pulling inspiration from bathroom wallpapers. You can catch me at the golf course drinking wine.
  • Creative
    Jimmy Parker
    Creative
    As a Creative, I aid in exploring and producing eye-catching and thought-provoking work ranging from packaging, to advertising, to website design. I’m always searching for new inspiration to keep things fresh, original, and exciting.
  • Development Coordinator
    Elena Valenzuela-Stookey

    Junior Creative
    As a Creative at BRIGADE, I work on a variety of projects from packaging, to website design, and ad campaigns — as a result, I am well-versed across many mediums. When creating, I find inspiration from nature, animals, geometric shapes and organic patterns.
  • Development Manager
    Liz Austin
    Development Manager
    As Development Manager, I work on moving the business forward from the inside out. Whether it be new client proposals and strategy or internal operations and finance, I’m your girl. And when I’m not on the clock, you can catch me dreaming of home improvement projects and breakfast foods.
  • Executive Assistant
    Senior Glenys Rignall
    Executive Assistant
    My official title is Executive Assistant and I work across all areas of our business and help keep a multitude of administrative and operational needs humming along as smoothly as possible. Outside of work, you’ll almost always find me spending time with my husband, son and two sweet rescue dogs.
  • Creative
    Steve Oparowski
    Creative
    I play the role of a Creative and that has pretty much been the story of my life. I approach projects with a technical eye allowing plenty of room for creative juices. After work I take care of my sweet-little monsters and do crosswords with my wife, all while trying to feed my appetite for hip hop.
  • Senior Producer
    Amy Dennis
    Senior Producer
    I lead the production team to ensure our projects run smoothly, on time and budget, and deliver the highest quality of work to our clients. I dive into the nitty gritty details of creative briefs and project planning. My top button is always buttoned and my coffee cup is always full.
  • Project Coordinator
    Shannon Hunter
    Project Coordinator
    As Project Coordinator, I help to support projects and communicate with clients. My passions for planning and list-making definitely come in handy in my day-to-day life. When I’m not at my desk you can catch me re-reading my favorite romance novels or binging my latest reality TV obsession.
