And I couldn’t think of a more fulfilling way to give back to our community,” says Tim McMullen founder and executive creative director at redpepper. “We pull an all-nighter to create anything from brand identity packages and social media plans to videos and t-shirt designs for underdog nonprofits so that they can continue to tell their story effectively and serve more people in need.“
