Bursting at the seams

Duft Watterson has gone through quite the growth spurt over the past several months.

In April, they announced the addition of two new team members, Designer Sam Fischer and Account Coordinator and Content Writer Angie Heuring.

Shortly thereafter, they grew by three more, as Account Managers Casaundra Petersen and Shauna Tefft, and Designer Jeff Lautenslager joined the team.

Thought they were done? Not even close.

Their most recent additions, based on what they’ve shared on Instagram and published on their website, are Designer Randi Arnot, Senior Designer Inna Grishchuk, Account Manager Hanna Wenter, Senior Copywriter Rich Lufrano, Digital Programmer David Scholer, and Videographer and Photographer Michael Bonocore.

Phew! That’s a lot of new names and faces to try and keep track of. And yes, there will be a quiz. Better study up.
